Cheap and cheerful Tissot
Tie made by yours truly
Finally joined the club.
Yes, I know that dive watches on leather straps offend some people. And I understand why. But there it is.
Borderline PMW but I did snag it for under 1K during a holiday sale.
My new daily watch
I've got a real soft spot for Oris lately. Just out of the PMW range usually, but definitely worth a look used or discounted.
I like that B&M Hampton too; always have. They're still around with the big discount ETA versions. I kind of regret not having one yet.
I love that Oris 65. I really like the "Heritage" version that came out in 2014 or 2015 as well. Those have both been on my short list for a while now.
Wearing my Aquis today:
Took another picture because I was surprised how dark it looked in the light for a blue watch. Next picture came out even darker:
Digging that Oris 65 with the vintage inspired lume and indices instead of numerals. Anyone else doing that look under $500-600? The parnis-type manufacturers have been cloning some of the vintage reissue Tudors decently well now but they are all 5ATM WR, which is a no go for me (and Im generally averse to clones/homages, especially sub-type)
Yep, that's the one I keep thinking about...
In my opinion, vintage Seiko is one of the best values out there. This beauty dates from '71.
I am sure some links have been posted before, but can someone direct me to decent looking and good quality poor man watch bands?
What's the price range you're looking for? Bracelet, leather, or other? With the internet these days, low price does not always equal low quality. A few suspects to start with are Cousins, some Ebay sellers, and even custom strap makers. Try the strap makers subforum of WUS.
