If your lucien Piccard watch came with the band it currently has, then I would suggest spending $20-30 on a new band, it will likely be of much better quality than the original, if it's like the LP watch I bought.

This is the 1000. I bought it in 1989 (if memory serves me correctly) at Costco for $150.

I think they ship out of Japan.  It's the Fluco cordovan strap.

Hi guys, love this thread. Wanted to ask you all for some strap recommendations for my Poor Man's Watch. It's a 49-year old HMT Citizen manual winding watch from India, that my grandfather gifted to my dad and has now passed on to me. It's got 18mm lugs and a faded/chipped gold case as you can see in the pictures below. Its on a cheapo black leather strap right now

I'm thinking of maybe an exotic leather strap like croc/lizard in black? and maybe a deployment buckle? Any other suggestions guys and links to good deals for these items? Thanks a lot

That is damn nice looking! I'm giving serious thought to buying one of those. I've seen several sites that sell Junkers watches; would you mind if I asked where you bought yours?

I love the style of the Junkers Bauhaus watches, but have skinny wrists, so worry the 40mm dial would be a little too large for me.  Any recommendations for a similar watch with a 35mm-ish dial.  I am after a very plain looking face (but which still has the style of the Bauhaus), with a brown strap ideally.  Face to be white or cream.  Budget up to about £400 ($700).  As a further reference, I also like the Meistersinger Neo's design, and that has a 36mm case, but that's out of my ideal price range.

Apologies in advance if the .co.uk links cause people problems.

 

Thanks

While I was nosying round I found what looks to be a Stuhrling Original Cuvette 44, new with tags, £50, no bids yet (probably because the main photo is of the case and not the watch!).  Might end up a decent buy for someone in the UK.

Hey guys, posting here hoping for some advice on my very first watch purchase.

 

What I'm looking for:

 

  • White face
  • Leather wristband
  • Basically a classic piece that will go with most outfits.
  • Between £150-£200

 

Going on solely my personal limited knowledge and taste in watches, I managed to find one piece in my price range that I've taken a liking to.

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Watches-ZEPPELIN-Zeppelin-100-7640-1/dp/B000S3376I/ref=sr_1_1?s=watch&ie=UTF8&qid=1352903731&sr=1-1

 

Can somebody tell me anything about this watch? What is the build quality like with Zeppelin? I might be inclined to swap the wristband for a smooth non-textured one. I'm actually hoping you guys can help shape my thoughts and lead me in the right direction.

 

I was also impressed by the Junkers posted above, but did not find any specific pieces I liked. I will be looking into them some more however. 

 

So, what would you do if you had £200 in your pocket and my tastes in your fingertips?
