    Yes but not much. They are way overpriced here. In Japan, that's a different story.

    It was my first automatic. If I ever see one on sale again. I'll probably scoop it up.

    Anyone of those here that have a Timex Weekender have recommendations on alternate straps? Just bought one and only have the original blue strap with the grey stripe, looking for some nice alternatives to it...

    Edit: I have the cream colored face.

    brand is Parnis. bought it off ebay.


    just search for 'parnis white dial' and you'll get a slew of decent-looking chinese (?) watches that are automatic and cost less than 90 bucks.

    i showed that picture of the watch i bought to my roommate and asked him to guess how much it cost. he said $1,500 - $2,500. lulz.

    I'm in Canada, no targets (or not around me at least), I'll check if Wal-Mart has them?

    But, would a leather strap work with this watch you think?
