lets talk watches

^ reminds me a little of junghans max bills. speaking of which, anyone own one? trying to decide between the hand-wound 34mm and the automatic 38mm. i've got pretty girly wrist.. 36mm would probably be perfect.

summed up what i think about nato straps. I love this guy. lol

http://ca.askmen.com...ato-straps.html

I just have a short question: What do you think about NATO watch straps? I think they look excellent on classic-looking dive watches. NATO straps give them a casual, yet preppy look. The only downside, I think, is that people who don't know anything about watches think that you’re wearing a cheap watch because of the nylon strap. Does the Snob approve?

By “NATO†straps, I assume you’re referring to those thin strips of nylon that urban hipsters are wearing on their faux vintage military watches in a hollow attempt to emulate a more genuine era. Nylon straps obviously had their use for soldiers as a cheap, durable means to strap on a watch, but they don’t belong on any watch to which a proper leather strap can be fitted. In fact, they don’t belong on any watch that costs more than the strap itself unless it’s a Rolex Military Submariner. But then you have no choice. And if you have one of those, you can wear whatever damn strap you want.

i think nato straps are a good look for field watches like hamilton or tsovet

Watch winders are supposedly bad for your watch :huh: Unless... you get a timed one and only have it run for enough time to put the reserve back up to full. The timed ones cost more as far as I know.

Any recommendation for automatic watches? Much affordable compared to Montblanc or some other brands. :)

alright guys, the Mrs. is looking to gift a timepiece for our upcoming anniversary. Budget is $3-4K. Currently own breitling navitimer chronomatic, sinn 956 and some other daily beaters. I was looking into a sinn 757, pre-owned sub, or a Panerai?

what about a decent dress watch? Do you have one?

there are some decent dress watches, but you should spend more for a nice dress watch. i'd stick with a casual beater for that price range. i like the idea of a used or vintage sub.

Anyone have any reccomendations for a daily watch around the $500 price range? I prefer more simple designs but anything that you guys can suggest i'll consider!

That is pretty high end. Granted, nice dress watches don't come cheap, but $4K isn't kid's watch money and Submariners and Panerais will be around forever (will one want one forever though?) a ss Dornblueth 99.1 for example would be a damn fine watch.

Before Heuer became Tag Heuer, they were known as plain old 'Heuer'. That watch looks to be one of their re issues of the last decade. http://forums.watchu...uer-523437.html Looks like a 'reissue' that isn't based on a real watch. From 2000.

The band looks so stupid
