Looks great on mesh! I am still looking for a nice mesh bracelet but have a hard time choosing one that's both affordable and solid. Any suggestions?
I don't have any other experience with mesh other than the shark mesh on my SKX007. But I think the one I have is pretty solid.
I didn't want to have to drill or cut one to fit, so I bought a shark mesh with removable links like you would find on an oyster style bracelet. William Jean (wjean28 on eBay) sells the shark mesh I have and I think it's pretty nice. The only complaint I have is the screws in the links are difficult to screw back in all the way. But the construction of the bracelet itself is nice.
I'm not positive, but it appears to be the same exact shark mesh bracelet sold by Strapcode and Market-Straps.com. So probably produced by a factory in China and distributed by various outlets.
I have an Omega speedmaster like this one http://xtrememeantime.forumotion.com/t7255-1973-omega-anniversary-speedmaster-125-chronometer
Not as nice looking since I wear mine everyday.
I'm looking for a band for it since mine is a little tight. Any assistance where I can buy one would be well appreciated.
Some stunning watches in this thread! Whilst I do prefer watches with mechanical movement, I received this a few years back for my 21st, and will always be a favourite...
New additions aplenty, but here's a picture of one of them to keep this thread going! :)
Tempo D'oro Skeleton. Automatic Hangzhou 2189 movement. Bought this during my last holiday in Prague. It's a mushroom brand ofcourse, Chinese parts assembled in Europe. But the specs are decent and the finish is on par with Sea-Gull branded watches. I am very happy with it for the $50 I paid. Decent power reserve as well, around 4 days. About 6 seconds off daily so that's perfectely tolerable. :)
Guys, I know this thread focuses more on the higher end, but I like the Timex below. They claim it's '70's Inspired', and it lines up with my recollection of what a man's watch looked like in the 70s :D
It's simple, easily read at a glance, has a 'night light' and I wouldn't slit my wrists if the watch was lost/stolen. Timex seems to have a reasonable reputation for reliability - just not a whole lot of street cred compared to more expensive brands. That's fine with me, particularly if it means I'm not likely to be targeted for my watch. .
