I agree, if the strap was wider, and the knob not so ostentatious - this could be a nice looking watch.

Auto. $1500.

Wrong thread buddy....

at least in my definition of poor man's watch...

It's hard to tell when the watch is photoshopped (poorly) onto that wrist. But I agree that it seems the band is too narrow for my tastes and the crown is unnecessarily large.

Band looks way out of place on the watch, though I like the dial (may be a bit too large, but that may be more a function of the band/strap size).

I have a small wrist but this Skagen watch fits me well. Not sure that it's actively in production at the moment but when I picked it up it was around $120 - $150.

Sooo many better options. Please don't buy that.

Stowa

Steinhart

Maybe a Tag if you aren't a hater.

 

That's just assuming you want something new. With 1500$ you can buy double that retail on the used market.

Thank you for the remark. It's an infinite improvement over the rubber band it came with.

 

Later that day I changed watches to another one appropriate for this thread. This is the Citizen CB0020-50E. The bracelet is very comfortable, and the watch wears well for casual work wear.

I picked up a Kenneth Cole dress watch on e-bay for 29 bucks and it looks pretty nice!  Score one for the poor man's watch!  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Where can one purchase a seiko blue spark in the U.S.? I must have one. Yesterday.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Not 100% sure but I think that's one of the kinds you would need to get from Seiya or Higuchi (two highly respected Japanese watch vendors) or the Watchuseek sales forum. I don't think you can buy them new in the US. Has to be overseas I think.
