Here is my contribution.
Bought this Seiko SKX007 a while back. In my opinion it is the best sub-200 watch. I would go as far as best sub-300, but i don't want to offend anyone. It is cheap, automatic, has a workhorse of a movement, and looks damn good.
The lume on these watches is phenomenal.
Here we have my Vostok Amphibia
It isnt the greatest watch in the world, but it has a pretty reliable automatic movement, amazingly good looks, and cost under 100. I consider it worthy of keeping my time.
Steve Zissou wore one in 'The Life Aquatic' and i love that movie. Russia used to supply them to divers in the 60's, so thats pretty cool. It has a domed acrylic crystal, bi-directional (mostly aesthetic) bezel, "scuba-dude" face, and dozens if not hundreds of face/bezel/colour options.
I love mine and am confident that anyone who owns one would agree that they are well worth their small cost.
In a lot of ways my Vostok reminds me of owning an Alfa Romeo. Its beautiful, isn't particularly expensive, does its job, but has small annoyances. The air conditioner will refuse to work, the tape deck is useless, blind spots everywhere, some days wont start, but i still find all the reasons in the world to love it. Even the stupid crap, you will brainwash yourself into thinking that your Alfa or Vostok knows more than you and will do what it needs to. Even though the Vostok's acrylic domed crystal is more often scratched than a plumbers bum, even though the bezel is useless, even though the crown has close to no grip to it, and the lume is about as bright as my retarded cousin, i love it.
The SKX, its reliable. Its pretty. My close friend and co-worker bought one from me because he was so impressed. Its a BMW. Its bulletproof and will continue to look cool even when there is something newer and shinier out. Im not ashamed to wear my SKX in the presence of my friends who rock Rolex or Omega. Im okay with the fact that i cannot afford a 5k watch yet. I like my BMW.
Hope you ladies have a lovely day.
