not at all wcarson, its an amazing watch the bezel is hard to turn at first but after some use its all good.

It retails 190 but with the coupon executive50 you get 50% off. Its great for daily wear and I think it looks dressy enough when you want to dress up.

I'm going to get the watchadoo bracelet for it shown below:



watchuseek.com has an entire forum for the Orient company, to tell ya the truth I've never heard of Orient until I browsed that forum.

my watches are so cheap they don't even worth mentioning. I won't be posting them lol.
But, does anyone recommend any site for watches that has a diameter of 33mm-37mm? I don't have a large wrist, and I can't wear watches with a large diameter.

From my experience vintage watches seem to run alot smaller in diameter, the new trend seems to me larger watches... id check out ebay for some vintage omega, oris, etc for a cheaper classic watch. If thats not your thing Hamilton makes some smaller diameter quartz watches for ~$100...

Actually the trend for watches, is they are getting smaller in diameter and width

I was at a watch place that had a Nixon watch and it was huge... honestly like alarm clock huge and we weighed it and it weighed 10+ oz.. Over half a pound!

I don't think the big 44-45+ watches will be in vogue for too much longer, by mid-decade that style may be finished for the most part. I tried on the IWC 3714 and it was large on my wrist, but still enough of a fit that I'm gonna put it back on my dream list. I really would like the 3714 with the navy band and blue hands.

Hello,
Here is my modest diver collection and hopefully I will be able to score some good watches in 2011 if Mrs. allows.

Zippy, I love your IWC Big Pilot, definitely next watch on the list along with Omega Ploprof.

katiedaddy, looks like you put the u-boat to good use!! the br 02 is refreshing. panerai is a classic, although i like them on the rubber/silicone band. i have actually never seen a panerai on a metal band, how do you like it??
