Poor man's watch thread - Page 194

I have an Antea KS as well. Really love these two watches and the flieger is a perfect fit for me. If I sell one of my sinn chronos, I'd consider picking up the marine chronograph. Its a gorgeous piece and I was enamored by it when I saw it in the metal this past summer (Jorge had a little exhibition in his hotel room).

I've got an Antea 365 on order from Stowa. ETA is mid July frown.gif. Till then, I purchased a Hamilton intra-matic 38mm.

I bought it from a grey market online retailer for $555+shipping. I think it normally sells for $800-$900 at an AD.

Where did you get the strap? Did it come with the watch?

Cross post from the Watch Appreciation Thread:

A vintage 1974 Seiko chronograph, that has become known as the "Pogue" Chronograph after Colonel William Pogue, an astronaut who was on the Skylab mission.

Pogue's Seiko chronograph was something of a stowaway on the skylab mission. It wasn't an approved piece of kit, but he just brought it along anyway, and it became the first automatic movement watch in space. An alert Seiko aficionado noticed it in a mission picture of Pogue that was published in National Geographic. (The folks at Omega must have been pissed.)

Here's mine:

His looks stock but if you are asking me... I asked Stowa to substitute their black Nappa 22mm with contrast stitching. They did so at no cost. I was going to put the strap aside and order a cordovan or another leather strap that looked a bit more dressy but after wearing it for awhile, I think the Nappa strap works pretty well. Sporty yes, but given the size of the watch (41mm), it works better as a casual wearer or OCBD.

Can anybody point me towards a decent watch with a wide leather strap?

Haha that is about the broadest possible question to ask on a watch thread =)

If it helps, this is what I currently own:

 

I'm looking for something similar. Not necessarily with a rectangular face, just something that's budget, looks good and has a wide strap. Thin straps look girly on my arm.

Anyone have a comparable watch to the Longines Flagship Heritage that's around under $500?  Love the simple style of this watch.  Nothing >40mm.  Thanks!
