    Keep it forever!

    (Or sell it to me! [​IMG] No...keep it, really. That's a hen's teeth watch.)

    Looks good on black leather, not so good on the NATO, imo.


    I agree. I was just toying around with the NATO.

    What are the thoughts on Tissot watches? My gf bought me this PR100 for my birthday and it seems like a pretty decent watch for the price. I didn't think you could get a sapphire crystal in a watch for less than $500.

    I've had a Tissot TXL Chrono for years (since I graduated uni) and it has been rock solid.

    I don't know too much about watches, but it looks cool. Been considering the PRC200 for a while now.

    Best of all though, your GF gave it to you.

    The pics I posted of all my watches (few pages back) were all gifts. They're not expensive watches by any stretch, but they all have sentimental value.

    Really nice.

    +1 I was never a big fan of brown or coloured dials but this one just might make me rethink that!

    Yeah, it was definitely a good gift. She even got it for me when she was visiting her parents in Switzerland, so it's authentic! haha

    Tissot is a good watch brand for the price, definitely. My wife has one, she loves it and it works like a charm.

    The only US Alpha dealer is closing up shop and is unloading his stock on ebay at some nice prices.
    Alpha's Milsub has been getting some good response on watchuseek. $52 shipped (!)


    Thanks for the link; I just bought one of these (for $42.)

    So far it seems like a great watch, although I'm going to replace the Nato strap with something leather.

    The absurd thing is that a decent strap costs more than the watch...
