Poor man's watch thread - Page 237

post #3541 of 3922

Looking to buy a watch that will last for a friend. I'm looking for one with a compass in it. Budget is about 200-300$ Maybe something that looks abit like this

Clean and simple. Easy to read. But it would be great with a compass in it. And the man got pretty skinny arms, so nothing too big.

Seiko should make a stock PVD SKX007. Sure they'd sell a ton of them.

Great looks on that one, although 47 mm might be on the large side for some. The link says you can make a sapphire crystal request for $0. Any idea what that about?

Basic black dial and face.

 

What about this ($750)?

I also found it here for $521, from some company that seems to be based in California. I hope that means you have to save up less.

Hi All, 

 

I have been reading through this thread and looking at pics and decided that I need/want a new watch. I do not know too much about Seiko watches, but really like the looks of the FFF moded watches. I am looking for any advice on which movements/models are best and if there are any to avoid.

I currently have a Pilip Swan Reserve de Marche on a strap and would like to get the Seiko on a bracelet as a more casual watch.

 

Any advice is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Joel
