I like it too. I have the white face version of that watch and it is a stunner. Very elegant.
That Movado would be cool if it where a little smaller in diameter!
What do you guys think of the Sarb 017 Alpinist?
I'd like it better if they still came out with the white dial version, but overall it's a great watch.
An excellent poor man's dress watch:
Right, but it's no longer available new, and very rare on the secondary market.
Yes something simple like this or anything similar to the orient bambino
See my post above.
Not sure you will find anything (automatic) more elegant for the price than the Orient Bambino. The only negative IMO is the size - it is a bit large for a dress watch.
Here's my cheapy Skagen. For a student strapped for cash, I think it looks nice for $40.
I think it does too.
I recently purchased one of Kent Wang's Bauhaus watches. The watch was $350 for a fully automatic watch, and easily the most beautifully designed timepiece I've ever laid eyes on. Unfortunately, the first watch I received did not keep time and was replaced, but alas, the replacement was also defective and I was issued a refund.
Lesson learned: "made in China" is what it sounds like. Despite the beautiful design, the Chinese manufactured movement is not worth the money saved in purchasing a budget watch.
In the meantime, my $40 Timex Weekender keeps ticking along.
What watch is this?
