Here's a wristy of the same watch from earlier. I oiled the strap and the color is fantastic.

Solar was the housebrand of Canadian store called Eaton's. Defunct for a while now, but their watches are a bit of a collector's item because some of them (not this one) were made by Rolex or something like that (maybe a subrand of Rolex). I think this has an eta automatic movement.

For every blue spark or mini monster, they have dozens of ugly watches.

Citizen does as well but they lack any of the hits.

It's beyond me why they would discontinue something like the Blue Spark. Have people just come to expect ugly watches and therefore ignore a tsteful watch?

I think Orient has a much better lineup, though they also have their share of uglies.

it is a bit weird. IMO, throughout it's history, Seiko has created some of the most attractive watches of all time, but unfortunately a lot of them have been few and far in between. 6105, 6217, 6309, blue spark, etc all gorgeous pieces. Wish they would re-release some of them.

Just Got this Michael Kors watch for 180.. I love it but not really a fan of the strap.. any ideas on a different one same color though??

 

 

Carbon Fiber strap could be interesting, that black / red stripped NATO strap could be cool, or a sporty brown leather might work as well.

I'm not versed at all in watches, and to be quite honest the last watch I wore regularly was when I was a Sophmore in High School (Said Gucci and was made of metal but I don't know for sure. That was over 10 years ago.


Looking to pick up a nice first watch I can wear with a suit or casual business attire. Any suggestions?

 

I'd like it to be a cheap good watch, less than $350 or so.

I'd go with a used Hamilton Jazzmaster.
