Poor man's watch thread - Page 48

Does it look bad to use a silver buckle with a gold watch face?

Just pulled the trigger on the blue Prometheus Jellyfish: Seiko automatic movement, tritium tubes, 300m WR, steel case, sapphire crystal. Also available in black, white and yellow. As to why it's called the Jellyfish...jellyfish produce their own bio-luminesence. Same thing with this watch - the tritium tubes are not as bright as a charged luminova dial, but give it 60 mins and the tubes are still glowing. In fact, they're always glowing .... but have a 12 year half life though. Bought mine direct from the company...good deal for $360.

I want a Pam homage. Will probably go with a Davidsen.

I finally picked up my first watch, it's nothing amazing, but it was a good price at $140 from the Seiko outlet store. Something i could definitely wear with a suit And it has a sapphire casing, not too shabby...

Not 100% my style per-say, but Seikos are great quality watches for the money! I own two. Enjoy!

I love Seiko's but I am not sure about this model. I am not sure about the size but the tapered band makes it look very small. I do like silver and white faced watches though.

here are mine:

got the tag quartz on ebay used for about $350 and got the skagen on ebay used $25. i hear people have bad experiences with used watches being fakes or broken but i have had no problems

I think Skagens are kewl for a non-mech; very slim and stylish, but 98% of them have these dedicated screw-in bands that cannot be changed out. Yours and another in this threak are the exceptions, and actually make me think of another electron pumper rather than the Seiko 5 I should actually get. Nice Skagen. Um, why are they showing completely different times?

Nice Skagen.

There's a lot of the leather banded ones that can be swapped out on eBay. They usually go for about $30-$50. There's some guy from Reno, NV (Skagen HQ) who's been selling tons of Skagens for the past month or so, with a good bunch of leather-strapped ones.

Upside down. They're both at 10:55 The skagen is great for the price. Signed crown, beautiful face, nice band.

I hate that its not possible to change the band at the Skagen watches.
