    bamahabir,

    I have one of those, did you not like the bracelet? I really like the all titanium and sapphire crystal on that one. It's nice, light and sleek on the wrist.

    really like this one. i think it would look 1000x better with a brown alligator strap though. :slayer:

    Mine actually came with a leather strap, wasn't particularly fond of it, or titanium bracelets in general, but that's just me. Always been overly heavy for my taste, the bracelet that is. Got this strap from timefactors and I love it, with caveats of course. Would have prefered polished hardware instead of bead blasted. I love the watch for all the reasons you listed, and for $180 total, not bad.

    Yea, got it off ebay pretty cheap, I knew I would go for a aftermarket band so no point in wasting money on something I'm not going to use.

    As a present for my graduation I may choose which watch I would like to have. I found two interesting watches. Which of these two watches would you suggest me to add to my watch collection (considering the fact that I will buy another quality watch within 5 years)?

    Is that how FC makes it, or did you mod it?

    yeah. there is a quartz version, but it is slightly different. this is the auto version. I have a sinn 756 and I wanted a decent dress watch. my other choice would have been a longines conquest heritage. I kinda wish it didn't have a date window, but its not a deal breaker since I end up using it a lot.
