I bought 56$ an Invicta golden watch 6963 @Jomashop.com with a coupon 10$ off
but 20$ for shipping to Canada (free shipping for USA). :mad:

# Precision Swiss Quartz Movement
# 10 ATM - 100 m - 330 ft - Water Resistant

initial weight 180 g !
160g after I removed 4 pins.
Very nice but too heavy, Ridiculous for a quartz watch.
I probably will not buy again this brand.

MSRP 395$ and sale around 80$ on ebay & amazon.com +shipping.
About shipping from US sellers, what do you use for US mail forwarding service ?

I prefer buy many with different design. Recently, I got more than 60 watches for the price of One luxury watch at 1500$.
I need to buy a display watch case with glass for my collection.
I have also a collection of watches band (gold tone & silver tone metal).

52$ with shipping for 12 watches storage/display. it seems a good deal.

as per OP's request for silver/aluminum displays,

here is a 15 watch display:
http://cgi.ebay.com/15-Watch-Aluminium- ... 5197ea6865

can't find my display case that holds 5, but it's similar. i got it on ebay for $40 (or less) shipped if i remember correctly like a year ago. i tried to find the same one online but i cannot now.

it is similar to this but i have a swivel hook rather than the clip seen in this picture: http://cgi.ebay.com/8-Watch-Aluminium-C ... 5197ca780c

Sorry but IMHO few are snobby and also upset by my opinion about luxury watch.
Thank you for your ebay link. Shipping cost kill the deal for Canadians.

What's your opinion about luxury watches? All you've posted here are cheap fashion watches or lame imitators.

No one in the thread except for one snob frowns upon $200 watches. We all respect one another. The problem is with the OP coming in and posting watches from Wal Mart or replicas/fake watches and essentially calling everyone else idiots for spending $1500 on 1 versus his 60.

Yes. But you can get excellent quartz and auto movements below 200$. Hence my suggestion for the Orient watch. This thread should not be about quantity, it should about quality under 200$.

Recently found a mall near my house that sells automatic Seagull movement watches!

:-0
Where did I call idiots people for spending $1500 on 1 watch ??

I said I prefer buy 60 (with different design) instead of one luxury watch. My opinion irritated few snobby people and I leaved watch lovers thread to create this one.
Do I need to ask your permission to collect also some replica watches ? :twisted:

All combination are possible 10 watchs at 150$ or 60 watches at $25 for the same watch budget.

I am little addict to the pleasure to get a good deal and to receive by mail a new surprise each day. The post man bring me almost each day one or two "gift". :)
At 150$ the watch, it becomes very expensive quickly. :lol:

I will take soon a photo of my collection. I got some great deal as ebay buyer.

Seiko SNM035 or SNA225.

Some good Seiko 5's and many of their 200M divers can be had for under $200 from grey markets dealers.
