    Anyone have any experience with Mondaine? Just stumbled upon them today and they seem pretty interesting.

    The quartz come in under $200 but the automatics can probably be found for around $500.

    Could anyone recommend me a place to get an aviator light brown or beige leather strap? I've tried searching online but everything I've found is in Europe, and I'm looking for suppliers inside the US.

    Preferably something similar to this shade of brown:

    Probably, that's about what they go for. If you like the roman one with the guilloche dial, it's also available from good stuffs for actually a little less.

    I have the M182SK skeleton in the same casework as all these watches, it's my fave watch I have ever owned. Gawd, I'm such a plebe.

    It is an Orvis watch. Orvis sells new watches on their site from $50-$250.
    Orvis has a reasonable good resale value on ebay. I hope that helps.
