Poor man's watch thread - Page 144

Bought this baby (elephant) a couple of days ago:

 

Seiko "Sumo" Prospex.

 

Will upload a wrist shot when it arrives this week, hopefully!

I read online that the watch has been discontinued, so even those websites you mentioned aren't able to sell them..

I guess I'll have to resort to FS threads as getting a new one is pretty much impossible at this point..

Damn, that too. I thought I'd heard that as well but I guess I'd forgotten.

Thoughts on what new strap to get for this (x-post from the Aussie Members thread)?

 

 

Also, what do you guys think of this Zeppelin?  When I first saw it (online) I really, really liked it... now I'm not so sure.

Just a word of warning to those that are considering a Parnis. I purchased an automatic Parnis and though it looks great (after replacing the horrible band), it sounds horrible. The winding weight in the back is soooo loud that the thing sounds like a toy.

Other than that, I can't complain too much for the $100 I spent on it.

You wasted 29 bones.

KC makes many watches but none that fail to suck.

There are a lot of examples here of some very inexpensive watches with much, much better designs.

If he likes the look, that he scored big.
Stop being a slavish label whore.
You would probably love KC watches if they were not labelled.
And spare me the movement bullshit. I don't care.

dapperdoctor, please post a photo of your stylish find...

Happy to take a blind taste test to disprove that point.

Your not caring do not affect someone else's caring.

I agree, If the person that bought it likes it and likes the price then it was a good deal for them.

I recently graduated and looking to possibly purchase my first dress watch.  The Zeppelin LZ129, Hamilton Viewmatic, and Tissot Vissodate all caught my eye.  Oh, the choices... baldy[1].gif
