    Great watch too. My girlfriend has this with the tan dial. Looks awesome on a colorful NATO band!

    Looking at their pilot watches they just look damn good

    Love this. Simple, clean and the watch strap perfectly compliments the face.

    I'm normally not a fan of black watch faces, but this looks really nice. Solid price too. I know the company does coupon codes on occasion, so I wounder if they will work on the watches too.

    I recently bought this watch from Orvis (not my picture). A great poor man's watch if ever I've seen one.

    Actually just picked up the Seiko 5 here, hoping it comes in soon so I can wear it on my upcoming vacation! http://genuinegents.com/?p=167
    Definitely looking to pick up an Orient or something when I get a chance/money :)

    Nice! But does a WWW qualify as a poor man's watch? Collector value?

    I've never been sure what value should fit under this thread. Under 1k? I paid about the same for my Jazzmaster.

    I have this in black. A lot of people don't like the nylon strap... I think it's OK but I've mostly worn it on other straps. I love this watch but it's mostly not in my rotation at all. There's nothing wrong with it, I just prefer my divers 99% of the time. I haven't worn it in a while, but maybe I'll bust it out sometime soon.

    EDIT: new pic
