Got  my Seiko 5 a few days ago, and it's a real beauty! I don't even want to mod it anymore!

This is a beautiful photograph!  Forget the watch (for half a second!) - I'm feasting my eyes on the whole image - the composition and lighting are amazing.  The razor is a perfect compliment to the watch, too.

 

Getting the ambient light down low enough for the lume to show, without seeing just green dots on a field of black, was brilliant in itself.

 

Very nice!

What's the product number on that one? Looks good! I have about 30 watches but still no Seiko 5. :) I have a couple Monsters though that I love!

it's the Seiko SNZH55K1. You find actually new ones for a very good price for the moment.

In the same price range there is Citizen BN0100-51E which I would have preferred to other options because of eco-drive battery. I also like its red minute hand. It gives an interesting touch.

Hello every one.

 

So... I have always liked watches but I don't actually wear them as much so I have always just bought cheapo watches!

Frankly I don't think I have ever spent more than $100 on my watches.

 

Now, it is important to note that I only buy watches as "fashion" items, an accessory to pair with "x" shoes, jeans, shirts, etc. so I actually don't follow the whole sub-culture of being crazy with how perfect it tells time, if it's Quartz or whatnot but lately I've been looking for upgrades, so, hopefully you wont chew me alive and throw me out of your club.

 

These are my current watches: (2 Fossils, 3 Cadence, 1 Sturhling, 1 redline)

 

 

 

I also have one of these: http://www.relicbrand.com/en_US/shop/men/whats_new/gresham_saddle_strap_watch-zr12045p.html

 

And backed this one on KickStarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1181681373/balance-watch-a-philosophy-in-a-watch

just for the heck of it (it looks like a monstruosity)

 

Anyway, having said all this, what would you guys recommend for something that looks great, works very well (to your standards) and it's an upgrade to all these I have home but doesn't break up the bank!?

 

Just a note, I don't actually like steel bracelets that much... ;-)

 

 

Thanks much.

Hope to learn a few things from all of you!

New rubber straps on Steinhart GMT

I wouldn't say I was a watch collector, and tend to go for the cheaper models, but there are some nice designs available at all sorts of price ranges. I have a couple of Skagens, which are ultra-slimline and elegant. I am quite tempted by a Zeppelin watch, for their old-fashioned look.

 

I am currently wearing a Daniel Wellington watch. The picture below is as close as I can get for model and strap design, except the metal parts are chrome instead of the rose gold finish.

Here's a couple of great sites I studied before I bought two Citizens, having never had anything costing more than $100, previously:

 

http://www.chronocentric.com/contents/consumers.shtml

 

http://people.timezone.com/library/wwatchfaq/wwatchfaq631668591017665598

 

Of course, I will tell you to go get a Citizen AT8010-58B (see my review, with a summary of its coolest features), but your interests could easily lie elsewhere.  :D

Here's one of my Skagens - the 433LGL1. As you can see, 'slimline' is the word! The strap and the body are the same thickness.

Nice watch that Citizen (and interesting to boot). Never knew watches like that even existed!! LOL

I will take a look at the FAQ and Buyers Guide at Chronocentric.

 

 

Thanks.

A watch thread?! Lol here are a couple of older ones:
Luminox Chrono with orange dial and gun metal case, custom strap.

Bulova Accutron Gemini Auto GMT


Seiko Baby Tuna Diver

Sooo... decided to buy a few more decent watches and got:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-BL5250-02L-Eco-Drive-Leather-Titanium/dp/B000EQS0WK

 

Loved how it looked.

Also checking out some others... oh boy. Hopefully the headphones I'm selling go fast so I can then buy a couple more watches! lol

 

 

Thanks.
