    Is this the same Weekender? http://www.amazon.ca/Timex-Mens-Wee...=sr_1_4?s=watch&ie=UTF8&qid=1324797132&sr=1-4 Looking to get one since it's in my (very low) price range. I also think it obviously looks good, do they always come with the stainless steel (or whatever material) as default or are there ones that are sold with that kind of strap? Would be looking to get a similar strap. Also, is changing the strap a difficult task?

    Thank you! I'll probably end up buying the one with the strap you got instead.

    And, any comments on its quality with regards to price? Obviously at such a low price I'm not expecting amazing things but is its durability at least reasonable?

    ^^ yeah, i prefer simpler designs too. Are those watches vintage or just made to look older?

    Made to look older. They have a tiny little shop ran by Japanese people (i think) in manhattan.

    Some of the watches are too loud, I find myself more aroused by the clean classy style of watches. :slayer:

    Can anyone give some feedback on the quality of Junkers for the price ratio?
