I am a big fan of mine, but I think they might be a fad.

I assumed they've been around as long as NATOs themselves...

Yeah, I would recommend anything from the SARB line or some of the older spirit models in a heartbeat. Great Watches.

Hayward, your pics have put me on the hunt for a 6309. What's a fair price I should expect to pay?

Up to $200 in good shape I would think. Here is a good reference:

I had mine restored by IWW, which set me back the price I paid for the watch again thereabouts.

Absolutely beautiful watch. I didn;t know Barbour ever did watches? Do you know what year it was made and if they made any other models?

 

Thanks!

For many years I wore a gold plated Seiko 5 automatic with the glass back so you could see the mechanism. I loved that watch but it began to lose time and then the bracelet snapped.
For Christmas my wife bought me one of the new Timex Intelligent Quartz watches. I'm very pleased with it. I think its really cool.

Great watches so far, loving the seiko and citizen eco-drives. Also, does anyone have any experience with older russian mechanical watches, like raketa, vostok or poljot? Saw a number of them on ebay, rather cheap, perhaps thought of getting a couple if they are worth taking.

Rocking a Tissot PRS200 in two-tone silver and gold. What do you guys think of Tissot?

I had Poljot Journey that I really liked until it got stolen at the gym. Keep meaning to buy another one.

That's a nice looking watch, any idea the price range? Does the bezel turn, otherwise what's the point of repeating the numbers?

$400-500 depending on where you buy it. The internal bezel does turn, there is a crown on the left side of the watch that you can't see in the picture that rotates it.

Looks quite awesome, shame it got stolen though :S; anyways, this new Gaz-14 line from Vostok might be worth getting for that price...Don't like the strap that much tbh, and I heard several similar complaints over some other forums, but I guess it's just a minor issue that can be easily solved. Besides that, I might have some doubts about the size of the watch, seeing as how I have somewhat tiny hands/wrists and only wore like timex weekenders and couple of seiko's in the past, but if its a 42mm diameter I shouldn't have any issues tbh :)
