bit late here but... fallen, I can highly recommend stowa. fantastic quality and look even better in real life than in the pictures. Nice size on the wrist too.

Service is also top notch.

Where can I get some russian/german mechanical watch? or any other military/aviator style watches? I'm looking at 100-300s.

here's one passed down from my grandpa. the first watch i've really ever worn for an extended amount of time. it's self winding, which makes for an interesting back:

^ I have the same one in black, and it seems to start conversations better than it tells time. :P

Got a Longines Flagship, automatic ofcourse. Got a pretty good deal on it, 1.2g. As a colllege student, I think it will do for a while. Very understated, minimalistic watch, which i love. However, would love to get my hands on an IWC. If only i had 3-4 gs lying around.

^ I have the same, but in white. I bought a Hirsch Carbon blue, and it looks good.

(I btw also have the diver 200 that everyone has, black bullet version)

thats actually really nice whiz, how much is it?

hope its not too expensive, considering the fact that the casio silver and gold ones (just minus the analog) are like $15 USd.

Bras Basah is selling it for S$239 (~160us) but I distinctly remember being quoted 129sgd( 85us) for it at Mustafa Centre. They were sold out when I went a few days ago. I'm gonna check back or try ebay.

^i think its cool. i got a victorinox watch recently and its a great looking watch and price wasn't bad either. i got the maverick II chronograph by victorinox and its a cool looking watch and i mean its not bad quality or anything so i say go for it.

i mean just cause its 150 i dont think you will face quality issues. the victorinox i got was 500 and just cause it costs more than the one you posted it probably doesn't mean mine will last and that wont. just more basic design and simplicity used in materials is probably why its 150 and im sure it will last you a long time without problems.

I saw the same at a sideshow for $10.

Btw, the finish doesn't look good. I hope for you it's not a fake.

wish I had:

sadly, it's more than most people's houses, don't think I'll ever get it...this one's more reasonable:

Check out the lange 1815 flyback chronon. My fav watch of all time. Same blued hands and similar face/font at a much much lower price.

Another one of my favorites:

unfortunately, price doesn't justify the hideousness of that watch
