Final Product:

Nice! I had a Citizen chronograph  a few years ago and had it stolen. I am thinking it may be it is time to replace it. . .

The black band really works much better on that Citizen! Good choice.

That is very nice, but I wish it had luminous hands and markers.

Sorry to move the thread into a different direction.

Anyone know of the best value watch bands in leather? I bought a Techswiss and it looks like it's made out of plastic. I really like the Hamilton bands but anything I find that looks nice is in the $100 range. I can afford around $30-40. Actually I'll probably just buy a different watch, this one (Lucien Piccard) has a 42mm case which is too big in my opinion, but most watches these days are too darn big even for my medium-large sized wrists.

Al Mar knife, very nice, but it is not likely that you will find one under $50. If you find two at that price buy one for me drool.gif. . .

Can anyone identify the following automatic watch. I just purchased it from Epaulet for $25. Apparently, they used to sell orient watches back in the day, and it originally retailed for $60 (sounds hard to believe).

 

I'm just curious as to the watch model and whether it was a wise purchase. (when it comes to impulse buying, I don't do too well)

Thanks! I guess they are cheaper on the orient range of prices. Hopefully it turns out to be a good purchase. After all, it was only $25

@amathew: you beat me to that white one. I bought the charcoal faced one. $25? why not?

This Omega Seamaster posted earlier is one of the best looking watches I have ever seen.
Does anyone know of a cheap knockoff of this style?

I really like the deep blue face
the almost cherry red leather band
the lack of excessive numbers on the dial and chronographs

Tough to duplicate the arrow hands. This Seiko might be close enough for you. You could find the strap separately if it fits but it will be more than the watch unless you use a leather version.

Have you thought about a replica?

 

If you get a quartz it will actually be more accurate than the mechanical from Omega.

I don't buy in to the the high prices charged by the Swatch Group for average products.

Reeks of "High end" fashion brands like Prada, Dior, D & G, etc.
