    Did the price go up?
    I sure as hell did not pay that much for mine with the extra strap.

    Recent Ebay pick up for a great price. Not sure if I'm going to hang onto it or not though. 18mm lug size doesn't work too well with my band collection, haha.

    "German watches"? The movements are either Japanese or Swiss, so they can't be compared to a true low-mid German brand like Nomos, who make their movts in house. It also looks like a rip off of the Junghans Max Bill line.

    Then again, this is the poor man's watch thread.

    Just kidding, but you guys have really posted some neat stuff here lately. I really like that yoonkers, as well as that Seiko.

    A few more shots of the vintage Seiko 5. Considering throwing it back on Ebay since I don't think it's quite my style.

    Very nice, understated face. You would think the black strap might suit it best but I think that brown strap really works.
