    This is my current infatuation. It's a German watch, Stowa... sorry for the cruddy back. I need to add this to the list of spring cleaning. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] And I know it's not necessarily a cheap watch but it's not a rich man's watch either. I consider it a certified steal for the price so sue me. Yikes sorry for the big picutres

    The bracelet is not my style, but the rest of the watch is great.[​IMG]

    ^^ how old is this watch?

    A few years perhaps? I believe it is still in production.

    Thanks. It comes with a bracelet that is actually really cool; the lugs fit into the case and follow the contour of the case. I am just really digging the mesh strap because its so comfortable in the summer. Here's a photo from the website:

    So, here's a recent acquisition. I had never ever considered buying a Seiko Orange Monster, but spending a couple of hours on a plane looking at pictures of the various Seiko "Monsters" convinced me of its awesomeness. Now, I'm not sure when and where I'll wear this, but I'm sure an opportunity will present itself. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am liking the "nicer" seikos. Particularly the old ones. And I will entertain no further.

    [must-- stop-- brain... buying watch(es)...]

    Stowa's and Japan-only Seiko's are great watches.

    Hey Metlin, you're gonna like this watch, it 's a fun little piece. It's a steal of a watch for the price.
    Wear it well.

    yeah it definitely is. it's bigger though at 42mm and has a date function. that smaller chrono register kinda irritates me though.

    sorry bout that guys. i thought poor man watch=entry level watch.

    oh and i actually like the bracelet on the stowa. adds character IMO.
