No problem. Here's some other good budget watches - Seiko SNK809, Casio G-Shock 5600/6900, Seiko Monster, Vostok Amphibia, Timex Weekender

New addition to the (very small) collection - really enjoying it and had not heard of Rodina until reading this thread, so thanks all.

You have a very identical looking combo that I have. Is that a Hirsch strap by any chance?

However the Rodina doesn't "feel" that good simply because it isn't original. I somehow feel a bigger connection with my SKX009.

Is there a specific reason why Tudor gets praised over its design elements and not Steinhart? True, Tudor is like 3 times the price but it seems Steinhart constantly gets flagged for ripping off Rolex. Just curious.

 

EDIT: After a quick search on google and doing some minor research, I now understand the history and heritage of Tudor. Carry on...

That´s a good point, Tudor tends to imitate Rolex probaly more than Steinhart in my opnion

I thought Tudor was a Rolex company.
post #5272 of 6354
Yes, they are indeed owned by Rolex.

Not a Hirsch @Jarmo - just a cheap ebay alligator embossed strap with butterfly clasp - will see how long it lasts.....

Thanks @ridethecliche

 

Here's the small collection at the moment - 2 PMW (Rodina and Sea-Gull) and 1 slightly non-PMW (vintage Rolex Oyster Precision - engagement present from my wife over a decade ago which is still going great).  All pretty dressy so I think a chunky divers watch will be next on the list - I like Oli2012's suggestion of an Orient Mako...

is that the Seagull M199? Theor price has skyrocketed over the past few years and they're hard to find. Really great looking watch.

Yes, its the M199S - really nice to wear and I love it - I know that good-stuffs.com currently stock it:

Don't sleep on the Seiko Sumo, @Charhan1  The quality is ridiculously nice for its $400 price tag new.

The new Sumos definitely look better than the previous generations. I'm still more of a Samurai fan though, save for the non-hacking movement and date complication.
