    What's the movement? Quart?

    Yeah, most Skagen's are Quartz. I don't have any experience with their automatics, but I've been looking into them recently.

    Though I don't necessarily have a problem with them being Quartz since the slimness of the design outshines the movement for my tiny wrists. [​IMG]

    All, I apologize if I am trampling the poor out of poor man's watch. However I still consider the various watches above entry level in a sense. Anyways, that's not my point. My point is, here is an awesome Seiko you could wear on the weekend and it cost's under $200

    bonus: not a knockoff/homage?

    Unfortunately the case is kind of huge at 46mm and I have a feeling the band in this photo likely costs more than the watch but there's nothing wrong with putting a cheaper strap or band on it. It's a Seiko SNKF11K... googling it some more...

    I was looking at at something similar earlier this year but settled on SNZF17K1 "Sea Urchin". You can go wrong with the SNZ series.

    That above Alpha looks about as much like a Rolex as any other diver watch does. Silly comment.



    +1 agreed. For those who don't like homages (we're not talking replicas here), then stay out of this thread. You're not needed here.


    Homages are replicas, doesn't matter what you call them to make yourself feel better.

    This thread is for people that can tell the difference between the two, iroh. As you can't, you may as well leave.

    I know what you're getting at, but no. Your retarded posts are more preferable than your threads, less eyesore.

    I think that's a modded Seiko 5.

    Hey guys, I've discovered some nice looking watches thanks to this thread but I was hoping some of you could give to poor newbies like me some websites where we could make interesting deals. Ok, everybody knows ebay, amazon, but I was more thinking of places like:
    http://www.pmwf.com/Phorum/list.php?50
    I'm sure there are other trusted websites like this one.
    By the way, what is the website offering the most exhaustive list of automatic watches? I'm wondering if I haven't missed a model.

    That's beautiful. I love Seiko 5s


    I think I posted this in another thread a while back, but:

    It's sub-150 so I might pick it up.
