The thread title says "what's your favorite watch?" and he responded. I see nothing wrong with that.
Let's see. He said "overpriced Swiss watches". You can draw your own conclusions.

"most overpriced Swiss watches". I think it's fine..because there are such things as overpriced swiss watches.

I and many of my friends had the Casio Twin Graph AE-20W when we were in junior high school 30 years ago. We purchased at Consumers Distributing for about $50. We loved them. They seem to have become collectors items, used ones sell on eBay for $150.

G-Shock Gulfmaster GA-1000B, I have it for 8 years. Better than most overpriced Swiss watches. I have been fan of Casio quality since childhood when uncle gave me his as gift and since 1994 only owned Casio G Shocks.
8yrs? gulfmaster? i thought they came out these two years or so. lol.

Speaking of the Gulfmaster .... it just so happens that the new Gulfmaster Q1000 v2 has I high failure rate, so buy from a AD. Nothing but bad stuff here http://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/proble ... 082-2.html

I purchased a GWN-1000E v1 last summer from a non AD dealer (watchzon.com). No issues with the watch thank god, but the treatment Casio is giving on non AD purchases is terrible, No AD = No warranty, even when the issue is a know production flaw. makes me seriously doubt an other high end casio purchase, that is before waiting 6 months to see what type of issues watchuseek members are reporting.

I can't lie, that limited edition is grossly overpriced for what it is/whats in it. Myota 8215, mineral crystal, coated stainless case (instead of bronze), 100m WR.

For less money you can have a Squale 20 Atmos or Steinhart OVM with the ETA 2824. You might even be able to get into a bronze watch with a Miyota 9015 for that money.

Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

I just got my SKX007 from Creationwatches and they seem pretty good but just shopping around for my SRP777K1.
Just curious if the SKX007 you purchased was the Japan made version.
If so, does it say 'made in Japan' on the face? Thanks. I've been looking to pick up this 'classic'.

My 10-year-old $80 imperfect Swiss Military feels so out of place here. It has mineral crystal, which is misspelled as "MINIERAL CRYSTAL" on the back lol. Oh well, at least it's all stainless, unlike my previous watch where all the finish wore off from the base metal.

Can't find any info on it, but it sort of looks like this, except it doesn't have the numbers around the outside. Also, it has all the odd hour numbers on the inside, rather than the dash lines. Also mine has day of the week as well.
