Poor man's watch thread - Page 342post #5117 of 636612/10/15 at 12:14ampost #5118 of 636612/10/15 at 5:57pm
White face isn't necessarily "flashy" but I think I know what you mean as "gets too much attention". I'm personally a big fan because they are easy to read and very clean looking. I wouldn't change it.
The leather band idea would make it less bulky. And that chestnut color band would make it a bit more casual. But also keep in mind the current metal bracelet is also considered casual and committing to a colored band limits your options for an outfit having a complete look. But all these things are just nuance. The watch is a big chunky masculine watch. I'd just wear it and maybe get a nice double layer (meaning fully lined) leather band for winter. Switch it back to the bracelet for summer.
Just my 2cents!post #5119 of 636612/10/15 at 11:29pm
One of the girls who works for me picked up a Daniel Wellington in the rose gold look with the brown leather strap. I have to say for the price that the watch looked great. If I were collecting "poor man's watches" that I would probably have one in my collection.
On a related note, Jomashop has many of them for over half off right now. You can get one along with a second leather strap for under $150 which is pretty crazy. Note I said leather strap though. I think they look awful on a Nato.post #5120 of 636612/11/15 at 4:50ampost #5121 of 636612/11/15 at 3:08pmpost #5122 of 636612/11/15 at 11:36pmMy girlfriend bought me a Daniel Wellington a while back. At first I didn't like it but I find myself wearing it all the time.
It's slim, simple and has a decent movement. The band is surprisingly nice for the price as well.
I wouldn't wear it over 30 as its a fashion watch but otherwise it's fine.post #5123 of 636612/12/15 at 6:52ampost #5124 of 636612/12/15 at 7:18ampost #5125 of 636612/12/15 at 3:57pmpost #5126 of 636612/12/15 at 9:52pmpost #5127 of 636612/12/15 at 11:22pmpost #5128 of 636612/12/15 at 11:42pmpost #5129 of 636612/13/15 at 2:24am
I was ogling these myself a while back; there are plenty under the $1k PMW threshold at Jomashop and the like. I'm not sure anyone ever sells them at their $4k+ official price, but for sure there are a lot to choose from in three figures - even the mechanical ones. For example, this under 800 bucks - and that's the larger size men's auto version, and not even the cheapest. Quartz and smaller/ladies sizes are cheaper still.
I really came close to hooking one of these myself but picked up a vintage piece (Glashuette Spezimatic Weldzeit) instead at the time. And then got fired. Once the court case is over and I get another job, I might still have this one on the list. It really is a feasible PMW, and strikes me as incredibly good value.post #5130 of 636612/13/15 at 8:42am
This one comes in at under $1000 and thanks for another temptation by the 'pernicious enabler"
