It also comes with a brown nubuck strap.
I have a cordovan leather NATO which looks pretty nice. I probably wouldn't wear it formally, but a casual jacket/suit day, sure.
Anyone own a Christopher Ward watch? Really liking this one:
Additionally, any similar watches for some comparison?
I've been reading through this thread a lot and had planned on spending about $1,000-1500 on a watch but now I am seriously reconsidering spreading that money over a few watches to cover everything, and I won't even need to spend as much as I originally planned. I asked myself why I'd want to spend $1,000 on a watch and couldn't come up with any answers good enough to justify it.
I know I'm getting a Timex Weekender because I like the cream colored face and nato band. Can't beat the price, either.
I'm also looking at some Seiko watches and Seagull watches but can't make up my mind quite yet.
Also considering the Daniel Wellington from a ways back.
Any other suggestions while I'm browsing?
The only watch I own right now is a Tissot 1835 Automatic with a black face and black leather band with orange stitching.
I've been rocking the grey timex weekender for the last few months and i'm looking to get some new bands in the leather variety. Anyone know where I can snag some cheap ones? Looking for a chestnut/walnut color as well as black~
This looks really nice, too.
I bought a shell Horween cordovan strap from here, it arrived very quickly and the strap was perfect.
A bit expensive for a Swiss Army watch. It would be great if you could get it on sale.
Yeah, $550 is a bit steep for that brand but I do love the look of it. I always try to wait for sales but I might go and pull the trigger even if the price never drops.
I ended up buying a Christopher Ward watch today with a dark bezel and dial so I want to also have something lighter for versatility.
Was originally planning on getting 1 watch for about $1200 and now I'll end up having two watches for less than that no matter what.
Well it wasn't the extra strap that sold it to me, more the fact that it was a good basic watch at a very reasonable price. And seeing as I only recently lost my regular watch...
I picked this one up recently. It had an expanding metal band that I didn't care for, so I put a new croc pattern leather band on it. I got the watch cheap and know it's nothing too fancy, but I like the vintage look of it.
Timex Electronic. It's a back setting model made in West Germany. I have $50 in it.
Got any photos?
what tool would i need to change the strap on a Seiko 5?
I used something like this.
I used a steak knife.
