    There is the Orient #2ER00001B (also come in blue dial version)

    Also the alpha as well

    The alphas tend to be hit or miss - if they're good they're really good...

    http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/jewe...Mesh+Watch.jsp Looks like Grenen is buy one get one half off right now too. The strap was a random ebay kop. It's just too easy to hop on the 'bay and type "22mm strap" then click a few buy-it-nows, haha.

    What is more versatile for business casual without a jacket & tie: roman numerals or markers?

    Does a leather strap with casual wear: Jeans t-shirt etc. work?

    I can see markers would be more versatile. But personally I prefer the Roman. Depends on the material strap. If its like a croc/gator/lizard, it might be too dressy. But something like a regular brown leather strap would do. Once again, personally I would wear either strap. I really don't think any watch is too dressy, its a pretty broad term. Most people think non digital watches are dressy anyway. ymmv tho.

    I think a mid- dark brown calf or gator would look nice with that. Just my opinion, though.

    Why does Grenen exist when we already have Skagen?
