It was the best price I could find on a Rios band. Quite pleased with it overall. If you look at some of the embossed leather options, you might find something close to what's on that Seamaster.

Have had this PAM homage for about a month now, and recently swapped it onto a mustard Steinhart strap. Certainly one of the more value for money watches I've purchased.

What do you guys think of Tissot, in terms of quality?

Why not take a peek at the "Christopher Ward" website for watches of excellent quality at decent prices?

Thankyou, I ended up getting one, it's not as nice as what I really want, but my watch is a POS anyways (Lucien Piccard), I ended up getting a Hadley Roma Heavy Pad Oil Tan Leather in dark Brown and the cheapest deployment clasp they had, $18. Hopefully it is of good enough quality to last me 6-9 months till I can afford the Hamilton Khaki I want (or a much more expensive watch if I keep reading these stupid forums).

This should look a lot nicer than my current band: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0048889IU/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00
Which looks like it's made of plastic.

Oh I also received 10% off using the code WatchFreeks10 (freak is spelled freek in this). The order has to be over $29.

I have only looked at them not owned but I always thought they had a pretty good price point particularly on their autos. I assume they use an ETA. I love the look of the Visodate.

I think it kind of adds to the retro feel.

that picture makes the watch look absolutely gorgeous . . . . in real life - not so much.

That logo is kind of cheesy.
Looks like a logo for auto parts.

I have a couple vintage Tissots and one modern one, the "Le Lockle." The do use ETA movements (both ETA and Tissot are now owned by the Swatch Group). The're on the same level quality wise with modern Hamiltons. I love mine - if you find a design you like, go for it. You'll enjoy it for years to come!

Probably why I went with a Hamilton instead.

(which I will be selling)

It's an homage.
