No image to share atm but I recently bought a Wenger Urban Metropolitan w/ Red Nylon Nato Strap seems a good simple swiss quartz watch.

My Casio Ediface's band cracked from use (plastic/resin band). Did some searches on google and was shocked at the prices being asked by some folks.... nearly half the cost of the watch.... Anyway, even though I dislike fleabay, that was the place to order a replacement Casio watch band. I don't care for the metal ones as they always seem too loose on my wrists.

Lots of really nice watches in this thread. Most are too rich for me, but I suppose if I was a "watch person", I would find a way.

$70 is over my watch budget, but I have to go to a wedding in November and I like the way this one looks with formal attire.

I ordered an Admiralty Grey NATO strap just like his, £12.25 shipped from Coventry. You only live once.

Even places that sell higher-end watches are looking to expand their customer base. Nowadays it's very common to see places, even high-end Authorized Dealers offering 12 months interest free financing. Yup, financing on a watch. All the near Luxury brands and higher. Normally I'd say just save up your money, then go and get the watch you want later. But with the insane price-hikes every 6 months in the Watch World being common as dirt nowadays, and not just tiny increases, I'd say go the financing route.

Though only if one can actually afford it. Basically, if you can afford to pay twice the price for the watch you want, then you can afford it. The nice thing with the interest free financing is that it let's you keep plenty of funds freed up while you pay monthly on the watch you want.

Seiko for me this week. Stock photo since it was already in my photo library. Comfortable and light. My auto winder doesn't charge it, so I'm been wearing it to get it charged. It's capable of a month reserve power.

I got this Nite Icon a few weeks ago and love it. Besides being a very nice watch, the customer service from Nite was second to none. Ordered it on a Sunday night and by Wednesday afternoon it had made it from the UK to my front stoop in Wisconsin. I had purchased a different band than what was included with the watch and they changed it out for me before shipping. AND this is the first watch I've ever gotten that was set to the correct time zone when I received it.
