I wouldn't buy a new strap for it
Knowing Stührling, i'd almost just buy a new watch for the same price you can get a good quality leather strap for. Although if your heart is content on this exact watch id say a nice navy blue leather strap (with or without the crocodile skin embossing) would look alright.. But buy the time you bought one of those you could almost just pick up a nice new Seiko 5 automatic which would be more worthwhile in my opinionpost #3816 of 50817/14/14 at 12:02amQuote:Originally Posted by MatthewG18

I've noticed that people are very partial to Seiko 5 as a good choice for a cheap watch. I don't know why, from those I've seen, I think they're ugly. I'm not going to try to say that Stuhrling watches are great, but I've found them reliable, they last awhile in my experience, and I don't expect a basic, simple new band to come near the cost of a new watch. Navy blue would be nice though.post #3817 of 50817/15/14 at 4:49amPrice-wise, this belongs here:post #3818 of 50817/15/14 at 6:40ampost #3819 of 50817/15/14 at 7:31ampost #3820 of 50817/16/14 at 9:29amSo my 30th birthday is coming up and I'm looking to get a watch to commemorate the milestone. Specifically, I'm looking for something vintage, doesn't require a ton of servicing, and would easily be worn in dress and casual settings. I have a budget of around $700.
Could anyone help me see the plusses/minuses of buying vintage in the following brands?
post #3821 of 50817/16/14 at 12:15pmpost #3822 of 50817/16/14 at 3:17pmAgree with H there. Longines and Omega will be your most affordable options and both offer up to 38mm sizes if that's what you are looking for. I don't think there is a significant advantage of Omega or Tudor over Longines except collectibility, so you will pay more. I never really see vintage Cartiers and I don't think they will be in that price range.
- Omega Seamaster (this has been a first choice, but I'm considering other options)
- Cartier Tank
- Am I missing anything obvious?
- Gerard Perregauxpost #3823 of 50817/16/14 at 5:57pmFor some unknown reason, I've been sort of lusting after an orange sumo. I have no real need for a dive watch, the deepest I go is 16 feet off the diving board at our pool, yet for I'm really interested in acquiring an orange dive watch. Sumo's are pretty cheap, any reason why I shouldn't just grab one?
I'm not taking this on any technical dives so there's no real legitimate reason to fork over a lot of $$$. Anything else in the $500ish range I should consider instead?post #3824 of 50817/17/14 at 1:08pmpost #3825 of 50817/17/14 at 7:54pmQuote:Originally Posted by Fred G. Unn

I'd say check out the Helson Shark Diver (comes in 40mm, 42mm and 45mm), I've got a blue 40mm one and it's one hell of a watch.
I just got a new strap for my Nighthawk, and I'm thinking it goes quite well with the watch. It's very comfortable for how thick it is. I don't imagine I'll be switching back to the bracelet for a while.
