    You cant buy it directly from Taobao. You need to use someone called a Taobao agent to buy the watch for you and then ship it to you. They charge you a small fee. I used the agent at this link http://www.taobao-buying-agent.com/

    What you do is, you give the agent the link to the watch you want (that you found on Taobao). Taobao is in Chinese though, so you have to use Google translate. You should be able to find this watch from this link here (use Google translate): http://s.taobao.com/search?q=%BA%A3%C5%B8%D4%AD%D7%B0m187S&initiative_id=staobaoz_20121017

    It's rather involved, but I was able to get the watch for around $130 (watch $90, agent fee $10, shipping $30). The entire process took 2 weeks.

    Do you have a closer picture of the watch. It looks really cool. Might want to get myself one.

    Here it is. Crown&Buckle leather nato, 22mm, dark brown (not the color I linked). Looks like they are pretty low on 18mm Nato selection. But then again just google 18mm leather nato and check out the options. There are leather natos from like $15 all the way up to like $300, hand made out of crazy special leathers and shit.

    fellas, any idea of a cool modern looking pocketwatch? i saw one at the straccessories thread but it is quartz. the idea of a minimalist, bauhaus, stowa-esque pocket watch is intriguing enough that im pretty sure there should be some out there...

    Anyone know if Seagull watches are sold by any retailers in the US? I think they look pretty awesome, and I'd like to see one in person.

    That looks like the Seiko Spark to me. Its a JDM model. SCVS013

    It was a hot seller when it was still being made. Great watch for under $500. You might be able to find them pre loved if you search around.

    I personally love the Seiko SARB line being made today.

    I was thinking about posting that Kent Wang watch here. Closest match to a Blue Spark currently out there? Looks like a nice watch but at 42mm it's a little too big for my taste/wrist.
