Poor man's watch thread - Page 133post #1982 of 68299/1/12 at 10:41ampost #1983 of 68299/1/12 at 10:57ampost #1984 of 68299/2/12 at 7:15am
Thanks for the input earlier in the thread guys, after going shopping the sales person led me to this little beauty rather than the other two. Going to end up costing me less than a $100, which is always nice. There should be no problem dressing this one with a suit right (the original purpose of the watch, though this one is more versatile than what I was looking at before)? Thanks for the input.post #1985 of 68299/2/12 at 10:32ampost #1986 of 68299/2/12 at 11:48ampost #1987 of 68299/2/12 at 6:25pmpost #1988 of 68299/2/12 at 9:47pm
I got the strap from www.watch-band-center.com. It came to about $27 shipped to the U.S. The watch itself was $29.50 shipped from Amazon.
The strap site had a really great selection, the strap itself is made in Germany by Graf, who I hadn't heard of before. It was my first encounter with "box calf" leather.post #1989 of 68299/3/12 at 11:20ampost #1990 of 68299/6/12 at 2:10pmpost #1991 of 68299/8/12 at 10:58ampost #1992 of 68299/8/12 at 2:31pmWell, here is my Frankenstein.
I put this combination together for under $100. (Watch, strap, clasp)
I elected to go with contrast stitching on the band. Looks smashing.
I am very pleased with the outcome, and look forward to years of use and abuse.
