    That looks just ridiculous on your wrist. Why does everybody on Sf fuss about harmony and proportion when it comes to clothes and throws it all overboard when it comes to watches?

    Take a close up of a watch on your wrist. How's it look?

    For those of you looking for an EXTREMELY poor mans watch with the green military strap mentioned earlier:

    http://www.dealextreme.com/p/militar...-sr626sw-80347

    (FYI, this site ships stuff fairly sporadically. I've always received my order but sometimes it takes a few months.)

    tan: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/militar...-sr626sw-80345

    black: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/militar...-sr626sw-80346


    You can't beat a $10 watch. If you buy 3 it looks like they only charge $8 each.

    Edit- Shipping is free too.[​IMG]
    I will buy 3 as small gifts for my nephews.
    Thanks for the link [​IMG]

    A couple of months ago, I bought a beat up Seamaster from another SF member, had the watchmaker sink about $225 of work into it and here is the result:

    Pretty happy with how it turned out.
