    I'm looking for something leather.

    I quite dig this one. I did a google search but the first couple search results show different strap, looks like gray stainless strap.

    Got an Orient DJ02002B (aka CDJ02002B) recently. Looks great, quite reasonably priced. The movement isn't quite as smooth as the Asian 7750 in my Breitling Navitimer replica but that doesn't really matter. The only real minus is that it has no lume so it's not readable in the dark.

    The model comes with a stainless strap, but it can be removed and you can buy another strap to put on

    Just saw this. Went over to the site and picked one up. Took a gamble at $150, I really like the styling of it... will add to my growing collection. Hoping its automatic/hand wound, but we'll see. Very limited information. I'll report back when I get it.

    Feel the same way as you... would snap up one or two Parnis if they had 40mm face. Are there any substitutes in the $100-$150 range?

    Agreed. Never know though. It's unique enough that even a quartz I'd be satisfied for $150 if the quality is decent enough.

    here is my Parnis chronometer, i got it a couple weeks ago. looks great! i got the date dial non chrono as well. both are keeping great time. it is a little big on my wrist. i plan on getting a vintage Grand Seiko as my grail watch in the very near future![ATTACHMENT=526]photo.JPG (2,664k.

    Love the Parnis as well, but would be too big on my 6.5 inch wrist.
