It's a great watch, esp for the price

But I prefer the older one, and it's always fucking sold out. Can be had on eBay for like a $100-$200 markup, which sux

http://www.woodlands...automatic-watch

http://www.uniformwa...or-black-rubber (or the 203)

I don't know a lot about watches other than what I like as far as looks, so help me out here. What would you guys recommend out of these three?

Uniform Wares makes very nice simple watches. I bought a 152 series earlier this year and it really holds up and feels really well made. I would reccomend one if you like their designs.

Recs on what color nato to put on a Rolex sub w/ a black face? I prefer solid colors

Modern or vintage? If modern, keep it on the bracelet. If vintage try a bond http://www.cheapestnatostraps.com/collections/nato-regimental/products/nato-strap-regimental-strap-black-red-and-green-james-bond-18-mm-20-mm but if you really want to stay with solids gray or tan

I've been waiting for this since the fist pics came out in May 2012. JLC and then my AD took a little while, but finally got it.

ehhh i'd be a little wary of ebay. try specific watch forums like timezone. timezone has a great buy/sell forum

Vintage seamasters are often frankenwatch. Price is often interesting, but you usually can't know for sure what you get. Save your money and get something else.

The Zenith was a holy grail for me for a long time. I only kept it for a few months though. Right now I'm looking for a 90's Rolex 16710 with pepsi bezel.
