I took advantage of a relatively weak ¥ a couple months ago and picked up the SARB017 and love it. The emerald green dial is a real stunner in the sunlight and the watch goes great in just about any situation. My only complaint is that the tang on the band seems sort of chintzy and out of place for the watch (which if it were not for the weak yen, would probably be one step above the "poor man's watches" category).
(Too much glare in the photo, but a great looking watch regardless)
I love these Helson's. I think these are probably at the very upper limits of what should be considered a poor man's watch (unless you get a great deal on one). Every time I check them out, I am very impressed with the specs for cost and they seem to have some of the best lum.
