Need a watch, suggestions? - Page 4

I thought this is a pretty casual nice watch to have: I have a watch from Alfred Dunhill that looks very similar in shape, but it has a dark brown crocodile strap instead. I find leather strap watches quite versatile--they are suitable when you're dressed up and when you're in jeans.
This is the watch i referred to in my last post in case anybody was wondering.

The Cellini is far from casual.  It is also a manual wind watch, and not the highest quality movement.  Unlike most Rolex movements, it is not a chronometer and does not use a Breguet overcoil.  Cellini is Rolex's fashion line.   It is a marvelous case design, however.  They are occasionally on eBay for about 50% of retail.  A similar (though larger) shape is found in the European Company Watch, the poor sister brand of Franck Muller (the company, not the watchmaker).

Okay, here's a dumb idea. Check out www.shopnbc.com. There are numberous watches from companies like Invicta and Stuhrling that use ETA movements and actually may be pretty decent. They look prety good, and are also pretty cheap.

Franck Muller seems to be in abit of a predicament at this point. The movements are rumored to be made by poljot, and the current CEO is part of the Armenian mob, and the eponymous founder has left, and is currently suing. From what I have heard anyways. Besides that one of the current ads for their watches has a lack of "Swiss Made."
