    Fuyugeshiki 33.8mm new LE Cocktail Time with brushed dial that mimics the snow. I think this is the most elegant model they have on sale right now. Would look classy on straps.

    It says TIMEX but don't let it stop you.

    It'd be cool if they don't coat the washi so it's matte instead of "cheap" reflective.

    Longines is classic and elegant watch, Eterna is not.

    Wearing my OWC Milsub today. I got this about a year ago from somebody towards a partial trade. I never see much written about OWC (either in the watch blogs or on WUS) and I don’t wear this often but when I do I’m always impressed by it. It seems to be built very solidly and has pretty nice finishing all the around.

    Crepas, is anybody familiar with this maker? It caught my eye on my new dangerous facebook watch buy and sell thread. They are made in Spain which further intrigues me being of Spanish heritage. I have resisted so far.....Comes with 3 straps....$850
