I like it.

I like it too. I have the white face version of that watch and it is a stunner. Very elegant.

That Movado would be cool if it where a little smaller in diameter!

Nice combo.

What do you guys think of the Sarb 017 Alpinist?
post #3096 of 3922
I'd like it better if they still came out with the white dial version, but overall it's a great watch.

Right, but it's no longer available new, and very rare on the secondary market.

theh00d, would you consider something like the below watch? I bought one a couple months back on ebay for $100 and I'm very happy with it.

Not sure you will find anything (automatic) more elegant for the price than the Orient Bambino. The only negative IMO is the size - it is a bit large for a dress watch.

Here's my cheapy Skagen. For a student strapped for cash, I think it looks nice for $40.

I think it does too.

I recently purchased one of Kent Wang's Bauhaus watches. The watch was $350 for a fully automatic watch, and easily the most beautifully designed timepiece I've ever laid eyes on. Unfortunately, the first watch I received did not keep time and was replaced, but alas, the replacement was also defective and I was issued a refund.

Lesson learned: "made in China" is what it sounds like. Despite the beautiful design, the Chinese manufactured movement is not worth the money saved in purchasing a budget watch.

In the meantime, my $40 Timex Weekender keeps ticking along.
