Re AD for Sinn - Louis Black in Yorkville still lists Sinn as one of their brands, though not sure if they lost their AD status?

Orient Sun & Moon V3s are finally starting to pop up on Amazon and sold by them. Only the white, black, and brown models so far; hopefully some blues show up too.

What's so special about that one? Looks like it would make a decent dress watch. Is $400 a good price for it or is street price cheaper?

I just ordered a cream dial Bambino v2.

Did anyone else cash in on any watches during yesterday's Ebay frenzy?I did some serious damage last night with the eBay 20% off everything coupon code....ordered a Seiko SARB033 for less than $350 and a Hamilton Khaki Mechanical for less than $300. Shoulda jumped on a Seiko SARB065 too.....I know I'll regret not getting that one at yesterday's crazy prices.

The sun and moon line just don't do it for me. I like my Polaris GMT better.

I just recently gotten into watches, and I've been deciding on a watch to get as my first automatic.

I've done some research and I really like the history and design of the omega speedmaster. I will most likely be picking one up later down the line as a grail watch. What price range should I be looking at from the secondary market?

For now, what caught my eye is the seiko sarb 033.

I want to get something pretty versatile with a simple design similar to the rolex explorer, or something that looks more like a "toolwatch" like the speedmaster I like the look of certain NATO straps, and suede leather straps. I don't quite like bracelets that much. Any other recommendations? my budget would probably be around $1500. I'm not a fan of white faces, or "dressier" watches. I like "tooly" watches that can also be pulled off with dressy clothes, or even a suit.

I'm sorry, but none of these do it for me. I don't know, maybe I don't have the "refined" taste yet. The closest thing I would have been into was the Christopher Ward Trident c65 but that branding on the watch though.. :/


I've been doing some browsing, and it seems like the SKX 007 is another watch up my alley. However, I'm probably just going to pick up a sarb033 tomorrow with a nice NATO strap :D

But the SKX 007 with a nice olive, tan, khaki, beige, or military green NATO strap... damn!

I have a Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical that should be arriving Monday or Tuesday. Good bang for the buck.

Anyone have any feedback on a Hamilton khaki field or a similar looking watch?

Haven't had anything high end before.. would like to stick to $500 and under.

In terms of buying a watch like this... does it really need to be serviced every few years?
