These military mods look great. They have a minimalistic look that is rather handsome.

The same guy is also offering this:
I like the look of this also ($140), but I'm probably going to go with the black version.
Those Seiko 5's look great, just be careful before ordering a custom non-returnable because they are quite small. I don't like big watches, but the Seiko 5 is even too small for me at 37mm.
I do love the look of these, but agree about the size. For summer casual wear it's great though. I don't think I would bother purchasing a nicer bracelet strap for these for formal wear. If these came a little larger...
Over in MC I posted a thread asking for opinions on this watch.
It's about $100, which is about the upper range of what I want to spend on a watch. What are the thoughts from the SW&D crowd? I should add that if I do buy this watch, the first thing I'd do is replace the leather strap with a striped grosgrain one.
FYI, Watch Doddy monitors all the populars deal-of-the-day websites. There isn't anything really nice today, but it you monitor the site for a week or 2, you can get an awesome deal on a nice watch. Most only ship to conUS.
also, Jacques Lemans is a pseudo-swiss brand only sold on the net. They have a line of watches that are swiss-made with nice movements that are really affordable.
