    ^ Nice. Not a big watch guy, so I'm giving this one a try. Just got it in the mail today.
    I'd never have described myself as a big watch guy but I think I'm catching the bug. Seiko 5's seem a great place to start.

    Nice Seiko's! ManofKent, do you know what the source/model number of your watch is? I really like the style of that one, and have had good luck with Seiko 5's already....

    Thanks - SNK381 I think - from goldfish? on ebay - seems a good seller.

    Here is one that you don't see everyday. It's a first-generation Ventura V-matic Chronograph.

    I like the industrial styling - different.

    Your douche levels are high. What do you have against bracelets?

    One leather wrap, OK, One bead, OK. One bracelet + watch, OK.

    But the sheer combination of all three on one wrist is too much for my prescriptive fashion style.

    And the thing is, just about everyone here who wears the above seems to consistently wear all three. Just looks silly to me.

    I'm not fully sure what the definition of 'douche' is in this context, nor what constitutes "douche levels" but I feel safe in the belief that cluttering up your wrists with a load of cheap looking overstated crap is more the mark of a douche than a non-douche.

    Yea you have a really nice one, and the price is just fantastic. I got mine for $65 at overstock.com. They are dirt cheap there and even selling some for $50! I was thinking of getting maybe one or two more before the year is over.

    I've got one of the Asian military style Seiko 5's. Fantastic watch. Beat the shit out of it for a few years now and its still going strong with only 1 real scratch on it. Got some nylon straps to use with it and I was set.

    Late to the party.

    My first automatic (present from my wife). Temporary black strap until I find something nicer. Any feedback on Hirsch?

    Minor problem with getting this watch. I've now ordered another Seiko, a couple of NOS manual wind watches and am very tempted by a s/h Titoni... Is this more addictive than shoes? [​IMG] [​IMG]


    really nice, has a bit of a rolex explorer/military classic look.
    try a hirsch sheep, thats what i wear my explorer on.

    Sweet - the Radiomir's have a cool (nifty, rugged, macho-indo) look (sorry, decriptives aren't coming to me this a.m.) which I like in contrast to the regular PAM. Is that the 42mm?

    The lume is very strong. About a month ago, a lady sitting behind me in a movie theater ask me to turn off my cell phone. I told her it was the glow from my watch and there was nothing I could do about it.[​IMG]

    You could always put in in your pocket for a couple of hours.

    Sorry, but people flashing lights in blacked-out cinemas is one of my pet hates.
