norubbersoles:
Thank you for your comment.  I opened the back as you suggested and there is no RGP designation.  The only identifying marks are the serial number and Bulova patent stamp.

What do you guys think of Orient? There's a 50% off code that makes this one $107.5:

I have an Orient watch. (one of their world time automatics.) I really like it. Well made, with excellent attention to detail. These are high quality watches at excellent price points.

The thing with parnis watches do they look and feel cheap?

post #1100 of 4103
Look - no; feel - to an extent, but still more than you would expect for the money.

BUT they sound really cheap - the movement is rather loud and the rotor is even louder. I was also tempted by the nice look, but I think there's a big chance you will not have fun with them.

Thanks Kai! I think I'm gonna get it. If anyone is interested, the discount code for 50% off is over at dappered.com and good for the rest of the month:

Just FYI, orient pretty much has never ending 50% off codes. While they are a good price, just don't think it's a limited time deal that you have to jump on.

For $50, you can't lose if you like the blue and white style. Go for it.
Don't listen to the people here who claim it broke.
They're just trying to justify spending more on their other watches
I have a $10 watch that has been running for years.
Go for it.

I'm beginning to understand why everyone hates reevolving. What a stupid answer.

After kicking myself all week for missing out on the Timex weekender in olive at Meijer.com for $24 shipped, the wife and I were at KMart this AM getting diapers for the daughter and I spotted this DCP_1649.jpgDCP_1648.jpg

 

all for sum of...$3.99 on clearance! LOL.  Cheapest watch I ever owned.

Got asked by a couple of work colleagues (both older and more senior) what type of watch I was wearing, while rocking the white face/blue hand Parnis (with original black strap). I said it is not a very well known brand but that I really like it. One of them asked "how much did it cost? It looks like a $2000 watch." Caught me off guard, didn't want to lie and inflate the value and i'm not the kind of guy to forget the approx amount something cost, so I said $70. They were both shocked.

Wish I had said it was a gift or something.
