That some of you dudes wear watches that are worth (or at least, that cost...) $5K-$150K would explain why you hide your faces in the WAYWRN and other threads.

posters don't show faces for anonymity and security... it's a personal choice. what does the price of the timepiece they wear have to do with anything related to that?

previous VC and PAM are sooo nice!! nod[1].gif

Beautiful watch - can I ask what the model number is? I am looking for a new dress watch. 

 

Closest I got was a Calibre de Cartier which I sold a few month back as I just never got much wear as this is on my wrist most days...

Nice watch, Gambit - deserves a better picture!  Platinum Lange 1?  Sweet.

Can anyone educate me on the quality of mid tier Seiko watches between the grand Seiko and Seiko 5 range? Pics to illustrate too will be nice. :-) Thanks!

Never mind.  If you hang around the subway sooner or later someone with a 5k plus watch is bound to walk past.  If you read this thread enough, you'll know who to mug.

I don't know what "mid tier" means as that's a big gap right there.  Maybe a more fun game is for you to name a price and style preference, and the Wizards of TWAT to give you their recommendations.

I don't have a price in mind for Seiko watches. Having said that, I'm looking for value more than anything else. Just looking for those with metal strap with a minimalistic analog dial face. This may be a strange reference, but I'm looking for something that looks like a Skagen watch but of Seiko durability.

Repeat post.

I have to say that to my amateur mind, that sounds a lot like a Seiko 5!

Have you looked at the Hamilton Intra-Matic?

I think that you just answered your own question. If you're putting photos of yourself wearing a $50k (or more) wristwatch out on the internet, you don't necessarily want people to know who you are in real life.

We hide our faces so the people we stole them from don't recognize us....but if you stick around a while you will realize the passion for such a purchase.

I checked out Seiko's website and it seems all their minimal type watches are Grand Seiko's.  You mentioned wanting something simple like a Skagen with reliability of a Seiko.  My thoughts would be something with an ETA movement which are cheaper movements but can be work horses.  They are also easily serviceable I'd assume.  Brands that come to mind could be Hamilton or Christopher Ward.  CW has minimal designs but don't think they use ETA movements.

 

I hope my rambling helps.
