My previous Bond On A Budget post (http://imgur.com/a/KhuqB) seemed to be fairly well received and I got a few requests for more looks from Skyfall. This is built ONLY on items that I have in my own closet. Nothing is borrowed or bought for this. It’s all just what I happen to have hanging up. So they may not be exact matches to the inspiration shots but I try to get the vibe even if it’s not perfect.

I’ve put roughly what I paid for the item and I’ve tried to link to the actual item or something similar at that price point. I buy a lot of things on sale or closeout so it may not match the price at the link completely.

If there is interest I’ll probably keep doing these theme based outfits and not just focusing on Bond. I’ve already put some thought into a music related one (Springsteen in 1975, Matt Berninger from the National and other guys like that) and maybe some looks from Wes Anderson movies. We will see what I can scrounge up based on what I have.

G-Shock DW6900-1V Men's Black Resin Sport Watch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000GAYQL8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_7Cd8yb0BR1V6C

u/CARTERsauce · 33 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Let's try again. Hot day in Fort Lauderdale, getting as much free beer and food as possible at an art event. Whatever.

DW-5600E is the basic (but still great!) no frills square.
Tells the time, has alarms and stop watches, counts up and down, an auto backlight, and calendar to 2039. It's dive rated to 200 meters, and has an electronic luminescent backlight, much like indiglo if you have a Timex.

GWM-5610 is all of the above, along with world time, and has the two biggest features for some: solar charging and atomic radio syncing.
For many, this is the THE "square." It's robust, self sufficient, and has a classic look without looking too dated or too ultra modern. The display is slightly different than the 5600E.

GLX-5600 is most similar to the budget 5600E above but has an additional bit of display for tide and moon information. Still as tough, still as cool looking.

GLS-5600 is a more recent, stylish variant of the 5600E. It come in 4 neat colors (black, white, green, and sand) and features a moving seconds complication on the face. Also, it features a "Low Temp LCD," this LCD is rated to go to -20 C. Honestly as you're wearing it on your person, a normal 5600E can go pretty cold as it also has your body heat. Possibly most importantly for some people, this model comes standard with strap adapters and a really comfy clothes NATO strap standard.

GWM-5610-1BJF is the Japanese only, blacked out model of the radio/solar 5610. These can be imported pretty easily through Amazon, so of cost isn't an issue, don't let the import bother you. The Japanese models also usually feature slightly more supple, softer resin straps and a screwback case, like on a mechanical time piece.

While not exclusively a 5600, if you need a big honkin' watch, the GX-56 is basically a thick 5600. Huge buttons and case, has all of the features of a 5610 with a cool moving seconds graphic like the GLS.

Many of these can be found in various colors and feature variants, so as a recap/guide:

5600 - standard square G Shock

5610 - radio/solar square model

GLX - surfing/tide model

GLS - stylish colors, comes with NATO strap

GX-56 - huge "King" G Shock

BB after model number - blacked out model

JF after model number - Japan import

Hopefully this helped. I had a lot of fun making this.

Seiko SRP307 "Black Monster"


Price: $200-$250

Movement: Automatic, 4R36

Style: Dive

Size: 43mm w/o crown

Link: Google Images

Description:

This is the second version of Seiko's SRP "Monster" line of dive watches. The watches are designed and built to be rugged tool watches, and are worth every penny. While the design can be quite polarizing, I would remark that there is no substitute for seeing one in person. There are several different colourways and iterations (rubber band, steel bracelet), so you have your pick of colour / band combo, and along with other Seikos in this price category it is one of the most "modded" watches.

This watch fits the need of many beginner collectors looking for a rugged tool watch. With the "version 2" update, Seiko has added its 4R36 movement, with hacking and hand-winding. The 4R36 replaces the workhorse 7S26, and both have stood the test of time as being excellent watch movements. It is worth noting that all Seiko movements are entirely "in-house" movements, as Seiko one of the only two fully vertically integrated manufactures.

The watch is rated to 200m, which is more than enough for all-weather wear and casual swimming / recreational snorkeling. More seasoned divers may require a higher-rated watch, although I have never read a complaint about this watch failing under any stress or strain.

It is worth noting that the list price for this watch is ~$500.00. I have never seen one sold for that price, and Amazon consistently offers them for ~$200.00. They can be found for ~150.00 pre-owned. Anecdote: I bought mine new from an AD in Canada for $225. He was advertising a "deep discount" at the time. He has been advertising that same "deep discount" for years.

u/eclipse75 · 22 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Usually there are always debates about a Seiko and the Citizen Eco Drive watch. You can get a Seiko automatic mechanical watch for under $150 that uses the popular and reliable 7s26 movement. Another popular watch would be one of the Orient Mako dive watches. I already own a Seiko SNK807 watch and just ordered a Seiko Orange Monster online (both of which use the 7s26 movement).

The reason why I chose the Seiko over the Citizen is because I wanted mechanical watch with the sweeping second hand rather than a quartz jumping second hand. But, with the Citizen, it'll never stop (unless you live in a cave or the sun blows up). Automatic watches will stop after about 40 hours of no movement.

Orient Mako is a very popular dive watch. It comes in a wide variety of colors (with black and blue being most popular). http://www.amazon.com/Orient-CEM65001B-Black-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3A/ref=sr_1_22?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1325124897&sr=1-22


Here is the one I own. The SNK80* comes in various ways also. Black, blue, nylon strap, metal bracelet, green, rubber strap, etc

Quartz is more accurate I believe, though mechanical watches are usually accurate to +/- 5 to 10 seconds a week (or was it day?). If the watch isn't solar powered then you'll need to replace the battery on the watch every so often. Also with the non-stop Invicta watches you see on Amazon, I've heard some people say some bad things. For sure brands though are Citizen, Orient, and Seiko in your price range. I don't know how BI4L they'll be though. Don't solar panels lose their effieciency over time? Also the 7s26 movement uses a few plastic gears. I don't know much about the insides of the Mako. They should all last 30 years easily though with some maintenance (taking for a tune up every 5-10 years).

Just be aware you can get the same exact watch on Amazon for $99, with free 2-day shipping (Amazon Prime) and free returns, as opposed to waiting a couple months for this one.

And according to camelcamelcamel, it went down below $90 just last month.

Seiko 5 Sports SNZG series (07/09/11/13/15/17)

Price: $105-160 (depends on the model)

Water Resistance: 100m

Movement: Seiko 7S36 automatic

Size: 42mm w/o crown, <49mm tall

Link: 07 09 11 13 15 17

Surprised this thread lasted this long without this one. This particular Seiko is the big brother to the quite popular SNK803/805/807/809 line. Typical 7S movement means no hacking and hand winding. You get a Hardlex crystal, day and date complications, famous Seiko lume, and a display back. The larger case is sometimes preferred by those who find the SNK line's 37mm a bit too small. The main series is the 07/09/11/15, featuring a bead blasted case finish (matte) and a nylon strap which is matched to the color of the dial. The 13 has mixed finishing of brushed and polished and comes on a metal bracelet (folded end links and folded links, nicely concealed), and the 17 is PVD coated with a PVD coated bracelet as well (for that tacticool look), and has lumed numerals (all the others just have lumed indices).

The CASIO G SHOCK DW 5610 BJF , needed a beater for everyday work/exercise so ended up buying this beauty. Old skool retro cool. With 10 month power reserve, atomic technology and super durable what more can you ask for in a beater.
I know people say negative display is harder to read, but I haven't really had much issue with it. It is true the screen can be quite dark at times but the crispness of the LCD screen still makes the numbers clear and pronounced. Been a week now and am very happy with the purchase.

EDIT: This is in fact the GW 5610 1BJF model. If you are interested in getting yourself a beater watch such as this I got mine on Amazon and there were no dramas with it, speedy delivery.

u/nautimike · 14 pointsr/Watches

Invicta 'resurrected' an old Swiss brand name(they have nothing to do with the original company), they tend to copy other companies designs or style cues, often using stock Japanese or Swiss movements with Chinese made cases & assembly, and the have insanely high MSRP but the watches are perpetually on sale for 70~80% off. If the Invicta MSRP is $315, but, the watch is always 'marked down' 73% to $85...then the watch is only worth about $85.

This lack of legitimate heritage, questionable marketing practices, along with quality issues and poor customer service have given the brand a bad reputation.

That said, I used to own the Invicta 8926. It was my daily/work watch for about a decade before I gave it to my brother. It got beat to hell and was worn nonstop for about 12 years, without any service, before it started keeping poor time. Not bad for $79.

As for the watch you linked to, it would probably be fine. On the plus side, it likely has a Citizen/Miyota quartz movement and may even be all stainless steel, so, it would be hard to beat for under $50.

That said, the watch snob in me finds the use of Roman numerals on a sports/dive watch off-putting. Roman numerals look best on classic dress watches like this. Rugged, over-sized sports/dive watches like the one you linked should use basic indices markers and/or Arabic numerals more like this Invicta diver.

Good, entry level brands to look at are Seiko, Citizen, & Orient. Seiko 5 are very affordable automatics, they even have a blue dial diver. The Seiko Monster is one of the best made watches out there under $200. Another possibility is this Orient Blue Mako.

u/CruiseBiscuits · 13 pointsr/PKA

MVMT watches are well known for being low quality "fashion" watches. These fashion brands are usually aimed at a younger audience so it makes sense they advertise on podcasts. In my eyes they aren't even worth the ~$100 price point. Sure they'll last a while, but so has my 10 year old Timex I got for 20 bucks, or some dollar store one I got as a kid.

 


If you are actually looking for a quality ~$100 watch, look at Seiko, Citizen or Orient. /r/watches is a very good place to learn, and you might find, like countless other beginners, that the Seiko SNK-809 is for you (my first "good" watch was the SNK-807), which is $50-$70 and a real mechanical automatic ("perpetual" for those of you across the pond) movement. Anything from Seiko 5 range is an incredible starter automatic watch.

 

Do some research if an automatic movement vs quartz movement is right for you (quartz is the basic battery operated watch that the "guts" can be found in watches ranging from $500 Movados to dollar store watches). I REALLY like seeing how things work so I really appreciate the mechanics behind an automatic watch. The downside to them is that they aren't as accurate as quartz (a normal range of inaccuracy is like +-10 seconds a day). But you'll never have to change a battery if that is any consolation. If that puts you off, keep in mind that a $10,000 Rolex has an automatic movement good for +- 5 seconds per day. And as a final PSA, stay away from Invicta. Their automatic movements, cheap pricing, and flashy looks may look enticing, but quality control is horrendous. Just as with any potential purchase, do some research on a watch you think looks promising. Give the model name a search on google or /r/watches and try to find a consensus.

 

For those of you who have been thinking they want a watch but haven't started exploring styles (which is the demographic companies like MVMT pander to with their styles) here is the classic "diver" style watch with the Rolex Submariner. A cheaper automatic dive watch I've been wanting for a LONG time is the Seiko SKX007, which obviously pays homage to the Sub, but is about $5800 cheaper. I'd replace the bracelet with something better than what is there though. Maybe I'll get it after college...

Another well loved cheap diver is from Orient, the Mako, though I prefer its big brother, the Ray, even though that is even closer looking to the Submariner.

The absolute best in budget vs quality in a dive watch is the ~$40 Casio MDV-106. You can get a decent 22 mm steel bracelet for almost the price of the watch and it will look fantastic if that is your preference. I've borrowed my brother's a few times and the thing feels like quality and has been put to the test plenty of times to prove itself as a real dive watch. He goes swimming, hiking, plays sports with it, drops it on concrete, etc. Rugged yet elegant looking. Good size too. Highly recommended first diver or first watch!

If you are looking for a real dress watch with "minimalist design" that doesn't look tacky like MVMT's (sorry, just my opinion), there are plenty in the Seiko 5 line like I said, or the lovely Orient Bambino.

 

Came back to say that if you don't really know if you want a watch, don't think you need to spend $100 on your first. Who knows, you might not like how it feels or looks on you or whatever. For the absolute cheapest of cheap, get yourself a Timex or Casio quartz watch. These brands are well renowned for their reliability. This way you'll end up spending only $15-20 on a watch that will last and work forever (obviously with battery changes along the way).

u/carloscarloseduardo · 13 pointsr/Watches

That's their sale tactic. They're always on sale, nobody has bought one of those at retail price. You kind of get what you pay for, if not less. Personally wouldn't go for those models, since they are blatant copies of a Rolex Daytona. If you want a good watch at those prices, check Seiko and Casio Edifice. Check this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003URWNOG/ref=pd_aw_sims_5?pi=SY115&simLd=1

u/xmorphicx · 10 pointsr/EDC

No information included about your desired price range so I'll just throw out a few suggestions. G-Shock is a solid choice - my favorite is the GW6900 as it is 5 buttons (dedicated light button), solar powered, and sets itself every night to the atomic clock. A slimmer option is the GWM-5610 with the same features except for the dedicated light button. These also have non-atomic non-solar versions for about half the price DW6900 and DW5600 which both come in around $45. These are classic models and won't draw unwanted attention.

If you're looking for something analog, while I hate to recommend another Casio, the MDV-106 dive watch is really hard to beat for 40-50 bucks. Water resistant to 200 meters, real functioning diver's timing bezel, applied indices, rubber strap... it's highly regarded at this price point. Good luck!

u/wrongwayseppuku · 9 pointsr/Watches

unpopular opinion to follow:

Personally, I don't understand the G shock for every day wear. For going to the gym or sporting activities, sure - but i'd prefer something less...gaudy? for edw.

For a proper adults watch and a really reasonable price point look to Orient, specifically the bambino or mako to get you started.

I've seen men at nicer events wearing g-shocks and it always strikes me as what happens when you tell a child to 'wear whatever you want', you shouldn't be too surprised when they come out of their room wearing a spider man costume.

/2cents.

If you're into a 'chunkier' design, I would reccomend the Suunto Core It's a bit higher than your price range but it's got a more streamlined look, I have one and it's tremendously useful if you're active / outdoorsy.

u/PossiblyHanSolo · 9 pointsr/EDC

Any of them are good. Knowing the model you had would be good.

My old recommendation would be anything in the 5600 line. There are many options, it isn't huge, and it fits well. That being said, for the last three months, I've been wearing the GW6900, and I love it. Little bigger than the 5600, but still very comfortable.

https://www.amazon.com/G-Shock-GW6900-1-Tough-Solar-Black/dp/B00284ADAI

You can't go wrong with any G-shock, but there are so many options that it might be best to look at their website to see what catches your eye.

Casio F108WH


Low profile, illumination, functional (timer etc) and cheap. I don't like the big G-Shocks, they're too bulky and get stuck on shit. The numbers are clear too.

u/adamscottama · 8 pointsr/Watches

Assuming you want a mechanical watch, here are my suggestions.

Desk Diver (a dive watch that looks a little more fashionable than utilitarian):

  • Orient Blue Ray

  • Orient Mako

    Utilitarian Divers:

  • Seiko Black Monster or Orange Monster

  • Seiko SKX007

  • Citizen Promaster

    These watches will have a lot of the same basic features: water resistant to 200m, screw down crown, time lapse bezel, mineral crystal etc. The Seiko's will arguably have the best lume and they also use their "Hardlex Mineral Cyrstal" which may have an advantage over the crystals of the Orients or Citizen. All of these use workhorse movements. The Citizen uses a Miyota movement that can also be hand wound.

This is a casual watch Link but very nice looking. /r/watches recommends it for the low end in terms of an automatic.

Well while I know you aren't using the word formal correctly but not many dress watches can really pass for a really casual watch and vice versa. I'm assuming you are talking about while wearing a suit. Unless you are james bond common practice is to not wear a bracelet watch while wearing a suit. If you were wearing a tux you shouldn't be wearing a watch at all.

u/1nky0ct0pus · 8 pointsr/gshock

I recommend the GWM-5610.

I wear it every day.

-Positive LCD screen with bold numbers is very easy to read in all lighting settings including close to darkness

-Auto illumination feature - turn your wrist to look at your watch and it will light up for you automatically if the solar panel senses darkness (can be turned off)

-Multiband 6 automatically sets the time by radio signal once a day so your watch is accurate down to the second at all times

-Solar powered rechargeable battery

-Low profile

The only things I do not like about it is that it is a little small on my wrist, the buttons are small, and I wish it displayed the current time in stopwatch and timer modes.

You can also go with a GWM-6900. Generally the same feature set with a light button on the front of the watch. Bigger buttons , much larger and bulkier than the 5610.

You want layers and mittens! I horse back ride and am outside for like 4 hours in the cold. I have these liners. Do not wear them by themselves. They will rip. Find a good pair of mittens. Leather will stop all wind. They will trap air around your fingers and be warmer than gloves. My hands don't get cold anymore.

u/whatthefuckguys · 7 pointsr/guns

You were looking for this one.

Also see the $87,639.09 Zenith and this hideous $85,750.00 monstrosity that I would totally buy a knock-off of.

Also, today my coworker showed me his watch collection, which includes a whole bunch of high-end Seikos, his grandfather's real Omega, and his two fake Omegas.

I asked him about the fakes and he was very open about them: "I want something that I can wear to the bar, but that reminds me of what I'm saving up for."

The watches can be done better for similar prices.

For the Connery Submariner-style watch, a Seiko SKX007 (now discontinued, so going up in second-hand price) or the Orient Ray are good, automatic pieces that can be found for $200 or less, stand out on their own, and look good paired with a Bond Nato (green on black, IIRC, 1-2mm too small for the lugs, if you want to get picky) strap.

For the Craig Bond Spectre Seamaster look, the Seiko SNZH57 looks very similar, is popular in the modding community as a start for a modded Fifty Five (google it if you're interested, I don't know much about it), and also looks good on a Bond Nato (grey on black strap).

u/Captain_Midnight · 6 pointsr/Watches

I'd get him a G-Shock. $45 and built like a tank.

u/piezeppelin · 6 pointsr/Watches

Seiko SKX007K

Really tough watch, which is good for a gym setting, not too flashy (because if you're thinking too much about how your watch looks at the gym, you're not working out properly), rubber strap is better than nylon or leather because of sweat. Plus, it's something that can easily be worn outside of the gym as well, just a great watch overall.

Having said this, I really urge you to look at a digital like this G-Shock. Provides a lot of functions that might be useful in the gym that you won't get with a watch like the easy reader or the Seiko I showed, they're tough as nails (I've had one for about 10 years now and is still in great condition), and they look right in a gym.

I really can't stand reading your post. You sound like a pretentious/pompous ass.

This part especially makes me want to punch you in the throat:

> Outside of perhaps the Movado, non fit my idea of a watch a young professional should be wearing with his suit. Thus, I am in the market for my first $1,000 watch.

You should be more worried about deciding whether or not to get a masters degree rather than trying to determine which watch would impress your boss the most. Try to make him think you're not a trust fund baby and that hard work is more important than your watch style.

But if you really wanted to impress him, maybe you should just ask your parents to back your purchase of this watch and in exchange you can pay for your BMW's oil change this time around.

Price: $80 MSRP, $50 on Amazon.

Movement: Quartz

Style: Sports digital

Size: 53.2 x 50.0 x 16.3mm (via Casio's site)

Description: Like all G-Shocks the DW6900 is extremely durable, very accurate, and highly readable with a great indigo backlight.

The watch is also waterproof up to 200 meters. Though there are a huge number of similar models, all DW6900-series watches are identical in terms of form factor and movement, the only difference being the wide variety of colors you can find them in.

>Well that's not really how trade value works. This is not a for sale, but rather a trade. I.e is skx is worth about the same, yes you could buy one new for around 175, but you don't. This is just an rough number for people to reference when trading. I understand that's you could buy it new, but people aren't wanting to pay for a brand new watch, but instead just trading their used one for another's used watch.

I mean, you do your thing man, but if you're valuing it at over retail ($165) for a used Blue Ray, in that case, someone can valuate their SKX at over retail as well. Want to buy my SKX007J at $280?

Edit: Spelling.

u/SkepTiKalKloWn · 5 pointsr/Watches

Casio and Timex both have decent digital watches in that range. For an analog, Vostoks are great looking if you don't mind that they can gain/lose alot of time in a day otherwise Timex and Seiko has some good basic stuff that you could put a metal or rubber band on if it doesn't come with it already. Outside of that if all you can spend is $100 most of what you'll find either gonna find are cool looking but flimsy pieces or decently made but basic watches. If you can up your budget even to $150 your options from Orient, Bulova, and Citizen open up a little bit.

u/bayernownz1995 · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Mid Pilot Watch

Or the Orient Mako in Black or Blue. If you choose either of these, I think it would be worth buying a leather watch strap. Here's a decent option (its $40 once you sign in)

Also try asking /r/Watches

Edit: Here's a good thread on /r/watches about watches around your budget.

u/tha_snazzle · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

It's actually on sale on Amazon right now.

It's supposed to be a good entry-level mechanical watch from a company that manufactures all their parts in-house. It's also a bit of a Submariner look-alike, but for a first watch, it's nice and affordable. Check out the reviews.

I would suggest some of these: analog/digital solar-atomic AWGM100, digital solar-atomic GW-6900, solar with compass/thermo G-9300 Mudman, or a digital solar with neg. display GR-8900A. All of them have solar charging. Some of the first options sync with the atomic time signal and do not have to be set (if in range of the signal). They are all classic black and are fairly large. Should be able to take any kind of abuse they can throw at it. I hope this helps. If not, you may check out he WUS forum for g-shocks.

u/ZanderDogz · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You have a few choices. You could either go quartz or automatic. Quartz is where you have a battery (and sometimes solar charging), and automatic is when the movement of your wrist winds a little spring in the watch. Automatic watches require resetting every few weeks because they are not as accurate, but some people think they are cool. I will assume you don't want to deal with that, but if you do, something from Seiko would be your #1 best bet for sure.

http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SRP309-Classic-Automatic-Watch/dp/B00AJK9CL4/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1457419081&sr=8-15&keywords=seiko+diver

This particular watch (which is what I am wearing right now) looks delicate but by all means, it is not. It is meant for scuba diving so you can swim with it and it is very durable to the point where I have accidentally used it to block a lacrosse shot and it survived without a scratch.

If you want to go Quartz, and for 200$, probably solar, you will want to go Citizen.

http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-AW1361-10H-Avion-Stainless-Leather/dp/B00KCF7JL6/ref=sr_1_3?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1457419158&sr=1-3&nodeID=6358540011&keywords=citizen+watch

I don't have a citizen myself but they are very highly reviewed over at /r/watches.

You could also go another rout and get a G-SHOCK, which is probably the most durable watch you can buy.

http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GWM5610-1-G-Shock-Solar-Watch/dp/B007RWZHXO/ref=sr_1_6?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1457419331&sr=1-6&nodeID=6358540011&keywords=gshock+solar

(Both of those are solar power).

I would encourage you to look above your price range a bit, especially if you want to go for a Citizen, because it allows you to get something like this that will last you forever, but you can still get something great for under $200.

http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-AT4117-56H-Nighthawk-Stainless-Eco-Drive/dp/B00GTNPXUE/ref=sr_1_3?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1457419426&sr=1-3&nodeID=6358540011&keywords=citizen+nighthawk

The watches I listed here are much more versatile than most of the ones you linked to, (except for the G-SHOCK, don't wear that with a suit!) I will wear my Seiko Orange Monster with anything from a swim suit at the beach or with a black suit at a formal event. Buying from any of these three brands and not from a fashion/clothing brand that also makes watches will guarantee that your watch will last for a very long time. Feel free to PM me or ask for help at /r/watches if you have any more questions or want any recommendations.


u/Frith_Inle · 4 pointsr/Watches

G-Shock 100%. There are a couple military ones with blacked out reverse dials, however they can be more difficult to see in certain light conditions than the normal dials. Here are a few models that military personnel use and some others:

GD-120

DW6900BB-1

DW6900-1V: This one is similar to a very popular G-shock used by a lot of US military, the DW-6600. I don't think they make it anymore though, but this is pretty close.

GW6900-1

GD100-1BCR

GD-120CM

GD-400

GD350-1B: This one has a yellowish tint to the digits so it's one of the easier reverse dials to read.

Mudman

Rangeman

DW5600MS-1CR: For this one there is a really cool mod you can do for about $35 more to make it look really tactial and military.

Edit Added some stuff

u/Nothingcreativeatm · 4 pointsr/Watches

Great gift. Wear it with pride-just not to work. If you want to have a watch while working on greasy machinery, try a g-shock. They come in a ton of styles and prices, and you have to try fairly hard to break them.

u/awkward_giraffes · 4 pointsr/Watches

I'm a pilot in the US Air Force and the most common watches in my squadron are either Citizen Skyhawks which retail for about $500 or Casio G-Shocks which retail at about $40 for the one that they issue.

I personally wear a Citizen Blackhawk, a Suunto Core, or a GPW when I fly.

u/usmcplz · 4 pointsr/Fitness

I've worn this watch for several years and it works great.

u/narwhalpiguy · 4 pointsr/gshock

If you want any watch with both a compass and temperature readings, it sounds like you'd be better off with a Casio Pro-Trek. They have more sensors than G-shocks, and are normally cheaper.

Here's one that costs only 50$ and has a compass, altimeter, thermometer, and barometer. That being said, it's not solar powered, and it has a negative display, which some people dislike (negative displays are slightly harder to read than positive ones).

If you want to go cheaper or really want a positive display, here's a 40$ one, but it does not have a compass or tough solar.

If you have your heart set on a g-shock. The only one with a compass and thermometer is this one, which, at 180$, does break the bank.

If you don't really care about a compass or thermometer that much and really want a g-shock, I can personally vouch for this at 40$, it's a steal. Other commonly recommended G-shocks are this one because it's less bulky and this one because not only is it less bulky, but it's one of the cheapest G-shocks with multiband-6 (for automatically syncing itself to the correct time) and tough solar.



My overall recommendation to you would be the 50$ Pro-Trek, as I think it fits your needs the best for cheap. However if you are against negative displays, it might not be for you.

Edit: Also the watch you chose is pretty cool. I just saw it was only 62$ on Amazon, that's a great option as well.

u/etskinner · 4 pointsr/ReviewThis

Recently bought the DW9052-1V G-Shock. Quite cheap, rugged (as far as I can tell, as with all G-shocks), ang going for $40. Waterproof down to 200m (at least that's what it says).

u/breathofdogs · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

A Rolex is a Rolex - but it also carries a lot of weight with it. I would love to have Rolex GMT - but - it just is not something that is in the budget right now. Even if it was...

That said, I have two Seikos (including the MIJ version of this one. For a wee bit of extra exclusivity - you should look into the Seiko SKX009 made in Japan. These are sometimes available on Amazon - and take a little more digging, but aren't extraordinarily more expensive. The black version is available on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/SKX007J1-Analog-Japanese-Automatic-Rubber-Divers/dp/B000RF6QRY Although you'll need a new bracelet - which are available online as well.

It's a great watch and I get lots of compliments on mine. It will keep the same time as a Rolex iand is super heavy. You might also want to look at Orient watches. OR if you want to go up a few dollars but less than a Rolex check out Tudor.

Believe me know one in watch circles would see it as anything other than a wonderful, affordable watch. Not a rip-off in the least bit.

u/ganagati · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

What watches does he have? What type of watch do you want - sport, dress, dive, aviator? Where is he going to wear it? How much can you spend?

This is a very cool thing you're doing - happy birthday to you and your brother.
I'm a bit of a watch nut and generally go for automatic watches, so that's what I'll stick to here....unfortunately none of them are as trendy as the larger Hugo you've mentioned. I'm not as familiar with the trendier stuff...but I can offer some input.
In that price range, I normally recommend Seiko. Their dive watches are pretty solid (http://amzn.to/1wX9UCd) and right in your range, but if you're looking for something a bit dressier the SARB line has some great pieces....although a bit higher than you mentioned - http://amzn.to/1tteaIk. The Seiko movement isn't as well known as the Swiss movements, but it's great all the same. For the money, they're hard to beat.
Going a bit cheaper, you can look at the Chinese made watches. Sea-Gull has some good looking ones. I've actually had one for a bit, but the quality wasn't the same and I ended up letting it go. The materials aren't as solid and the fit and finish isn't the same as Swiss or a Seiko. At the same time, you get a whole lot more shoved in the watch for quite at a much lower price point. For instance - a Chinese-made Sea-gull tourbillon starts at $4000ish, while a Swiss-made one will start at....$35000. That said - this is an attractive sea-gull: http://bit.ly/1wUHdab; and here is a dressier one: http://bit.ly/1yOyFks
Another option is to go vintage. You can get some cool watches at great prices - Omega, Jaeger Le-Coultre, Girard-Perregeaux. While I generally wouldn't recommend eBay due to the amount of fraud you'll find, here's a good looking Seamaster currently for sale - http://ebay.to/1zqa1tC. A more reliable source for used watches is http://www.watchrecon.com/. It's an aggregate of several watch fora and you can see what's currently for sale.
Best of luck in your search.

DW6900. Or, if you're more into the square look, DW5600. Both less than $50 and conservative in style. You can then use the other $450 in your budget for something nice on the weekends or as a reward to yourself for getting that commission in four years. Good luck with your studies and future career.

hate to sidetrack your thread, but have you considered these? a daily driver for a carpenter, first thing that comes to mind is a g-shock. indestructible, holds perfect time, and features you could use. I listed a few others for you. Personally. I would get one of these 3, and wear a 007 after work/weekends. IMO, wear and tear is only cool on vintage watches. I agree, 007 is a super sturdy watch, but i'd be a little funny shaking it that much during hard work. Cheers! :D

My one other recommendation is for the orient mako Black, Blue, Amazon search for other colors. That said to help make a decision you should ask yourself a few questions.

Do you want an automatic or quartz?

What size watch do you want? (How big are your wrists?)

Which one do you like the best?

u/spmtr · 3 pointsr/Watches

It really depends on how dressy you want to go - unless you work in a super conservative industry, you can stray relatively far from the traditional "dress" watch. A few options that are more casual/versatile but would still easily work with a suit in most settings:

u/e39lemansm5 · 3 pointsr/Watches

I'd recommend one of Orient's divers:

Ray

Mako


There are several color options and they are great for the money. In house movements, decent bracelets and in my opinion, great looking. I have the ray raven and love it.

If you want to spend a little more, the Bernhardt Binnacle Diver is another great option. I also own one of these and I can tell you the biggest difference compared to the Orients is in the bracelet. It has to be one of the best ones on the market in that price range.

u/HectorTheOwl · 3 pointsr/Watches

The bezel is the (typically) metal or ceramic ring that surrounds the dial. On a lot of watches it is stationary, just part of the case. Most divers have a uni, or bidirectional rotating bezel that is historically used to time a dive. The bezels are usually pretty large on these so that they can be easily read, even underwater.

Orient makes some really affordable, automatic divers that are often recommended here. Is that the style you're looking for?

u/blackice7 · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

That's actually a good budget to get a decent entry-level watch.

If you're into a sporty, yet classy look, I would check out dive watches. They're versatile, indestructible, and will look good with most outfits.

I was in the same situation as you, and was deciding between the Orient Mako http://amzn.to/rivjad or the classic Seiko SKX007 http://amzn.to/qbWT5Z. I ended up with the SKX007 because it was unique, and a long time favorite within the watch community.

You can get either one of those <$150 on eBay from trusted sellers. Can't get much more bang for your buck.

u/twillstein · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Nearly all new watches go for significantly less than MSRP. For example you can easily find a 30% off coupon for buying from the Orient site.

A quick search of the Orient Mako (much loved by /r/watches) yields the following:

Orient website - $285 ($200 with 30% coupon)

Amazon - $145

Sky Watches - $120

u/mtd14 · 3 pointsr/Watches

Yeah, also right now the Black Orient Mako w/ bracelet is used on Amazon for $66 as an option. Quite a good watch, and this vendor cycles through which used watches are on super sale ~every 30 minutes. Just to consider.

u/LunarPrime · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

I thought Orient divers were pretty popular here?

u/kurazaybo · 3 pointsr/Watches

I do find the dial interesting, but like other's said, it looks too big and loud on your wrist. How big is it?

I would change it for an Orient Mako

u/TYBYeezus · 3 pointsr/TeenMFA
u/acog · 3 pointsr/Watches

You can get a very clean Christopher Ward watch with a Swiss movement for under $500. I just purchased this Christopher Ward "flieger" (German flight watch) style piece, and I love it.

I'm finding that at the $400-$500 range you have a huge variety of decent quality timepieces to choose from. I can afford more expensive watches, but I'm still uncomfortable with the idea of anything more than $1K on my wrist.

By the way, by no means do you even have to spend that much for a great watch. The Orient Blue Mako and the Seiko Monster are popular and well regarded, and they're both inexpensive.

u/EddieTaishoLin · 3 pointsr/Watches

I'd recommend the Orient Blue Mako.

http://www.amazon.com/Orient-Mens-CEM65002D-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3K

It's very nice and has a tremendous build quality. A lot of people mistake it for a Rolex at first glance.

u/ashirian · 3 pointsr/Watches

I think you could find good citizen Eco Drive that has similar function as PRC200 : http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-AT0200-05E-Eco-Drive-Chronograph-Canvas/dp/B000EQR6H0/ref=sr_1_6?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1335766853&sr=1-6

Or a Seiko Kinetic
http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SSB045-Special-Value-Kinetic/dp/B00756FJJ4/ref=sr_1_5?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1335767001&sr=1-5

Another option for quartz since you were looking at PRC200, is Orient TT0Z001B Limited Edition STI Ion Plated chronograph.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TeMpz-cxl8A

The Orient used to give out 50% off coupon but they don't do that anymore just 30%.. so $440 retail, 50% would have been $220.
http://orientwatchusa.com/tt0z001b

For what you get, I think it's good deal at $170. 5 left until sold out. 4 left.

If you want an automatic mechanical watch, I would suggest Orient Mako, Seiko 5 series, or Sea-Gull watch.

I have that Seiko SNZG13 and it's great on my wrist. I think for smaller wrist, you should look at 38mm~42mm. I have a 43mm watch and the lugs hover over my wrist. I have two 41mm watches that I wear most frequently and those are Orient and Seiko SNZG13.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Sea-Gull-M186S-automatic-designer-watch-multi-purpose-comfortable-to-wear-/280841797985?pt=Wristwatches&var=&hash=item416379c161#ht_642wt_1141

I'm getting this Sea-Gull next. For the price this is a beautiful piece with classic roman numeral dial with blue hands. I have a cheap Parnis with ST-25 but the movement is just dead accurate. More so accurate than my Orient and Seiko 7s26. I'd say accuracy is Sea-Gull>Orient>7s26 in this order with Seiko being most elusive sometimes. Plus with Sea-Gull automatic, you get the movement that you can hand wind as well as hack. So all in all the Sea-Gull may be your best bet at EXACTLY $120. You'll get a penny back.

Hope it helped.

u/ordinaryhatwontwork · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Generally, you can swap metal chain for leather strap - if watch allows it, you can do it. For example, Orient Mako's metal chain can be replaced.

If you do not like black dial (I don't), you would maybe like these:
Orient Blue Mako

Orient's as well as Seiko's are great choice, however I think that watch should be the only piece of jewelery worn by man, and therefore I like them little bit more eye-catching. Blue dial on those Mako's is really nice (it isn't matte, it changes color with different angle of light) and is a sure compliment getter.

Black Mako's are dressier, little more versatile, but imho more dull.

u/Cool_Cherry_Cream · 3 pointsr/Watches
u/nephros · 3 pointsr/Watches

What you want is called a chronograph, which at least in the world of analog watches means a stopwatch right on the main dial, with a dedicated button to start and stop. Such a watch should fill your "quick access" requirement just fine.

Cheapest would probably be the Casio Edifice (example one two three) line of quartz chronos, but there are others, e.g. Timex Fly-Back (another [in white] (http://www.amazon.com/Timex-Intelligent-Fly-Back-Chronograph-Leather/dp/B0053EXKVE/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1368595494&sr=8-13&keywords=quartz+chrono) ) There are may other brands like Pulsar, Citizen, Festina or Bulova who offer cheap quartz chronos; even some Seikos go for under $150.

Now of course if you need more features from your stop watch, like multiple timers or lap-times you'll have to look into digital sports watches, there are also plenty of them around (g-Shock is recommended most of the time). Here I's recommend trying them out in a store because usually you won't find the description on how to access the timers on the web easily.

u/Ubermensch-1 · 2 pointsr/CanadianForces

The Casio F-91W was the top recommendation the last time this question was posted, it can be had for $10 on ebay. I use the AE1200, which is a mildly cooler version that is also cheap and works well.

I also have a G-Shock DW6900, which is a great watch, but it's big and digs into the back of your hand when doing pushups if you wear your watch below your ulna. Some guys in my unit have the rangeman, which is cool but pricey; I've yet to hear back about the reliability of its compass for land nav. I've also seen this behemoth out in the wild, which would be cool if it weren't obscenely large (not "big for guys with 6" wrists" large, just plain large) and had the same features as every Garmin and Suunto.

I like the Garmins and Suuntos from a training perspective (for tracking runs and hikes, etc.), but most of the Suunto models don't seem to have seconds readouts, which I think is pretty critical for a military application. The Garmins are pretty good and there's a store where you can download different watch faces to suit your needs. It's a shame smartwatches are so often overpriced, because there's a ton of untapped functionality there.

Whatever you do, get a digital readout, preferably a 24 hour one. Don't be the guy with an analog watch; I understand the aesthetic appeal and normally wear one all the time, so I can tell the time pretty quickly on them, but it's so much easier to use digital at night or on course.

u/nailbiterthrowaway66 · 2 pointsr/calmhands

I'm going to ramble in this comment a little bit because this post is more for me to come back to as the year progresses

I initially attempted to stop nail baiting on January 1, 2016 but ran into a few issues. I had about 80 packs of gum I had gotten from some deals, and was trying to chew that all the time to prevent biting nails, but my jaw started to hurt. I reduced gum intake and started biting again. I still have like 40 packs of gum so I will restart this and try to just move the gum around my mouth rather than chew it.

I purchased these gloves on Amazon because they were lightweight ones I could wear at home. They work and are pretty comfortable, but since they are silk the fingertips tear kind of easily (my index fingers both did but it's okay). I was unable to find other lightweight gloves that might hold up better. They are thin, breathable, and you can usually type and use a touchscreen decently with them. I really recommend getting these and put them on the moment you get home or are out or do anything.

I started to relapse in the last half of 2016 because I was trimming/filing my nails and they would be uneven and snag a lot so I was trying to "remedy" this with my teeth. I would basically bite them but there would still be white nail left on the top. If you can see in the pictures, the nail beds themselves are uneven and the nails grow unevenly and I try to remedy that with my teeth.

These pictures are after about two weeks to finish the year of not biting. My thumbs I've actually done really well with since ~ March of 2016. I don't think I ever bite my thumbs at all. A big problem I have is that the nails get dirty because of the gaps underneath them and I try to use my teeth to clean it. That is something I need to avoid as well.

There's my ramble. I plan to take photos on the first day of every month this year to track progress, and I will probably purchase a small metal nail file, maybe that I can even keep in my wallet to take out when i want it. The one on the Swiss Army Knife on my keys is shit.

u/mjtokelly · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

These are the lightest warm-ish gloves I've found: Terramar Thermasilk Glove Liners. 0.65oz in medium. I usually layer them on top of sun gloves; combined, they're comfortable down to freezing (as long as I'm keeping active).

I use spare socks if it gets colder, and have nitrile gloves if it were ever to be rainy and cold. (Though I never have needed them -- thanks, Ridiculously Resilient Ridge)

u/bannus · 2 pointsr/boston

Agreed that the wind is the worst...your hands and face are most vulnerable. Here's some specific items I got that have helped me through the cold weather. I got these PI gloves which are great, but my fingers got a bit cold below 40°F, so I got these glove liners. The combination keeps my hands warm at any temperature.

I also love this balaclava. It's thin enough to fit under a helmet and the material is thinner near your mouth, making it easier to breathe. You can wear it with the facemask down or the head cover down depending on the temperature too.

I'm not super into watches/horology so my opinion is gonna be a lot different than most. For $80, get what you like. Yah it is basically a Rolex rip off but honestly no one is gonna give a shit. I would personally save a little more and get a Orient Ray and swap bracelets. Looks very similar but distinguishes its self as its own. They usually go on sale for under $150. I picked up the Orient Mako back in Dec for $65 but they rarely go that low.

Sorry if I'm hijacking this thread but I have a question for an orient diver owner. I want to get this and I was wondering if it would look good on a nato leather strap. Also how big is the case, I have slightly smaller than average wrists and I was wondering if a 40mm watch would look too big.

u/HALF-turtles-SHELL · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm not a fan of either. Budget watches that I would consider:

u/Arcs_Of_A_Jar · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

There's a disconnect in overall style to have a rotating bezel and thin watch hands.

The Orient Mako is the closest watch I can think of that has all of your characteristics, including a price that only slightly exceeds your $100 limit.

u/ehsu · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

For about the same price, I'd rather have a Seiko or Orient. I don't know much about watches, but I get the sense that Invicta has a somewhat negative reputation among those who do (i.e., the folks on /r/watches).

Seiko looks a lot classier IMO. I'm not a huge fan of the Citizen diver design. Have you checked out the Orient Mako? Definitely worth a look.

I have returned watches before, there is no reason they shouldn't take it back. The sellers switch off on what they have in stock so just try to find a different seller on there. Here's one

u/brendanvista · 2 pointsr/EDC

You should do a bit of reading to find out more about what you might want/need in a watch. Mechanical or quartz? Date window? Alarms? Waterproof?

That Invicta has treated me very well, and thus far has given me no reason to doubt it. It keeps great time too for a mechanical (look at the bonus album I posted; you can see into the back). However, I bought it against the recommendation of a lot of the watch community. Invicta has a hit and miss reputation, though the 8926ob is one of their best regarded models. If you're looking for a "Rolex Sub clone" there are some other options out there in a slightly higher price range that are from more respected brands. /r/watches might have some recommendations for you. I would personally look at this watch: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001EWEQ3A/ref=pd_aw_sim_241_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=51zhHeruIeL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL100_SR100%2C100_&refRID=164BC614FP2Z13EXSNE9


That all being said, the reviews for the 8926ob model are pretty positive, and Invictas may have just done it all right this time. Look at my other reply about the watch too. The movement (gears and springs) are made by a very reputable Japanese manufacturer, Seiko. Just be warned that it might not be a watch that will last long enough to be passed down to your grandkids like a real Rolex or something.

u/NeonGreenTiger · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Here is my watch. I love this for numerous reasons.

  • First, it's my first automatic watch. I'm a fan of going old school and this is one part of that. A watch that doesn't have a battery but rather is charged my the motion of your wrist.
  • Second is the price. It's an amazing watch and for less than $150, it's one hell of a deal.
  • Third is that all of the components are made in-house. Unlike your major players (Omega, Rolex) Orient makes the casing and the "guts" if you will. The big players have the inner working made my 3^rd party sources.
  • Fourth is that it's so versatile. It looks great with everyday wear or formal wear and it comes in numerous colors.

I have an orient mako and it's great. I think it also fits the kind of style you're looking for.

u/hbaas · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Agreed!

Specifically, I'd suggest the seiko 5 diver, or the orient ray or mako. They are all very solid budget divers.

u/redux42 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I would suggest taking a look here:

http://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/

Beyond that, I'd say if you want one that uses a battery, go with a Citizen Eco Drive. (I have one of these and it has treated me well: http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-BL8000-54L-Eco-Drive-Perpetual-Calendar/dp/B00074HDAO/ref=sr_1_4?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1291526117&sr=1-4) If you want an automatic I'd suggest either an Orient 'Mako' Diver (I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/Orient-Mens-CEM65002D-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3K/ref=sr_1_7?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1291526189&sr=1-7 and it treats me well) or a Seiko 'Monster' Diver (http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SKX781-Orange-Monster-Automatic/dp/B000EPLR2G/ref=sr_1_2?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1291526221&sr=1-2) Neither of those will set you back the full $300. Heck you could get both and still have a couple bucks left over.

u/sidtel · 2 pointsr/Watches

I apologize, there have been a lot of "what watch should I get for $xxx?" threads lately and I seem to have gotten confused.

AsianEnigma has some good recommendations, but if you aren't dead-set on a chronograph, I suggest looking into some Orient's. The Mako is gorgeous and extremely good quality for the price.

u/keithcozz · 2 pointsr/Watches

My daily is an Orient Mako. I love it.

u/2facetherapper · 2 pointsr/Watches

looks like an Orient Mako to me

u/ThatPetrolhead · 2 pointsr/Watches

They're sold out at the moment, but the 40mm Tisell Pilot would be right up your ally. A little over $200 CAD now with our terrible dollar though. For a diver, as long as you aren't after the metal bracelet and don't mind picking up a new leather strap or nato, you can snag a Orient Ray on the rubber strap for under $200 CAD (which leaves you room to replace the rubber).

u/Fl1te · 2 pointsr/Watches

[This one] (http://www.amazon.com/Orient-CEM65004B-Black-Automatic-Rubber/dp/B001EWEQ4E/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1382894636&sr=8-12&keywords=orient+watch) looks fantastic. I don't like the band it has, but that can be easily replaced. The one thing that I wouldn't like is that I couldn't show off the mechanical movement and that it can gain or lose 30 seconds a day. I like the black look it has, and its awesome size.

Middle right is my off duty glock 26. I love this as an off duty weapon. I've upgraded a few things on it too. I use an IWB alien holster for the Glock but didn't feel like taking it out of my pants.

Bottom is a case for my S5.

u/cheesehelmet · 2 pointsr/Watches

For a utilitarian work/outdoor watch you should have a look at the Casio G-Shock range of watches. Lots of functions and extreme ruggedness under $100.

Example: http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GW6900-1-G-Shock-Atomic-Digital/dp/B00284ADAI/ref=sr_1_9?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1324419334&sr=1-9

I got a Gshock with as atomic time setting and solar, so it was like $87 with tax. HRM is $50. Arm straps you'll have to search based on your phone, but they're not much.

I have been thinking of getting this watch, but am concerned with the build quality. Also I was considering buying the Casio Chronograph instead. What is your opinion? (I would put a nato strap on either)

u/Aevum1 · 2 pointsr/Watches

Maybe you can still find some swatch automatic chronographs based on the C01.211 but they are basicly disposable.

Also the chinese airforce with the ST19 allows a mechanical chronograph for quite cheap, (not automatic) but reliability is an issue, sizzle watches also has this http://www.sizzlinwatches.com/proddetail.php?prod=ticino-military-aquachrono-watch which is Panerai inspired and uses a chinese 7750, dont expect reliability or accuracy,

Unless you want to buy a 2nd hand Seiko 6138, i dont think you should go for anything mechanical under 700-900 bucks which is what entry level swiss 7750´s cost.

Now quartz wise, you were right to look Casio, Seiko and Citizen. The japanese still make some of the best quartz movements around, Casio makes bottom bargin watches which are amazing.

If you want something sporty, Omega speedmaster Inspired

u/Nixtrix · 2 pointsr/Watches

Assuming your Casio is similar to the EF503D-1AV (for comparison's sake here is yours, the EF503D-7A, on Amazon. Funny note, Amazon lists yours as having a band width of 7 mm.) the listed band length is 20 mm which corroborates with what mirite had found. This means your 19 mm band you've picked out to replace the metal one with would fit but it may be a tad small for the actual area but it is a safe bet so i'd say go for it!

u/Rawrsomesausage · 2 pointsr/Watches

Haha, yeah the Stargazer is nice.
This is the Casio. I've seen it talked about in the sub before and people seem to like it. For the price, I doubt you can go wrong. It also comes with a white face.
It's more similar to the automatic Speedy and most Valjioux 7750 chronos because of the sub-dial placement.

Edit: This one is also similar.

u/Rhett_Rick · 2 pointsr/Watches

Are there threads here that collect coupon/deals for watch retailers? I've seen them on other watch forums but all are out of date. The Seiko SNZG11 is the ticket but with a band it gets up there from what I originally budgeted. This is my first quality watch.

u/hydraulx · 2 pointsr/EDC

It's pretty much an armored F-91W with a multi-function alarm, countdown timer, and more water resistance.

If you like that style and want more features, check out some of the different GW-5600 models that also have solar or wave ceptor to sync to atomic clock time signals.

My favorite is probably the GW-M5610 that has the inverse display.

u/Jedibrad · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

It can be hard to give shoes as a gift: sizing can be all over the place, and you don't want to spend $150+ on a present that he can't use. Furthermore, shoes can be very pricey, with most of the best options starting way above $200 retail. Aftermarket sales can be great, but that chalks a lot up to luck on such short notice. Same thing with blazers, really; sizing can change drastically between brands, and to make matters worse, they're typically even more expensive than shoes. You can find some great sales, of course, but that requires a lot of time -- something you don't have a lot of right now.

So, I have a new proposal: how about a nice watch? Watches can be pretty expensive, too, but they don't have to be. There's lots of nice options below $200 -- here's a few possibilities:

Orient 'Ray' | $172

Rodina 'Automatic' | $119

Orient 'Bambino' | $139

There's a ton of other available options; I didn't even scratch the surface. You could also pick up a couple straps, too, if you have a bit of extra cash left over -- Crown & Buckle and CheapestNatoStraps are some good places to look. Bear in mind that Sofie - the owner of CNS - is based in Sweden, so they might take a while to arrive. Mine took about 3 weeks, but I'm satisfied with the purchase. With a time constraint, though, C&B would probably be the better choice.

If he already has a nice watch, you could look into buying him some shaving supplies: it can be a thoughtful gift, and the start of a new hobby that both of you can share. Look around /r/wicked_edge and see what you think! I could help you put together a starter kit if this is the route you end up choosing. :)

If he wears suits on a regular basis, you could look into getting him a few ties, too. Ties are a relatively personal gift, though; he might not necessarily like the ones you pick out. Still, you can't go wrong with some Chipp Grenadines!

Finally, if you're looking for one last small gift, he might like a nice comb. If he's been using a cheap plastic one, he'll notice the difference right away!

If you need any more help, just ask. :)

u/raijba · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Lots of great suggestions in this thread for things you'll eventually need like a suit, shoes, wallet, cookware, knife, etc. I just wanted to add what I've learned in hindsight: sometimes it's best to buy cheap before you BI4L so you know what you want when it's time to spent the money for the long haul. For example:

Shoes: I bout a pair of Allen Edmonds Strands in walnut for my first pair of nice shoes since I was going to be working in a business casual environment and lots of people said they were great fashionable shoes. Turns out the broquing and bright shade of brown were too fashionable for me, even though I thought it looked alright in the store. I would have gone with something tamer if I had tried a similar yet cheaper pair of wingtips like the Strands before buying a dress shoe. Same goes for boots like the Red Wings recommended in this thread.

Suit: My first suit was terrible but at the time I thought it looked fly as hell. Luckily I bought it from a cheapo tailor in Asia and wasn't out of too much. I had to spend some time in it to realize that it wasn't what I wanted. Having this suit experience was especially important since without it, I wouldn't have known what I didn't want in a new one.

Cookware: as far as cookware goes, don't dish out until you've spent some time in the kitchen with cheap shit (or easy shit). If I had started with cast iron, which requires considerably more maintenance than stainless, I might not have gotten as much into cooking as I did. Some will argue that cast iron doesn't require THAT much, but to a beginner who doesn't know left from right in the kitchen, it can be a lot to keep track of. Also, do you like working with a chef's knife or a cleaver/santoku? Non-stick or stainless? There are a bunch of preferences to develop.

Anyway I think you get my point.

For some actual recommendations: I bought an Orient Ray as my first "nice" watch. It's automatic (no batteries) and waterproof. It's not truly bi4l however since it lacks a crystal sapphire scratch proof glass face. But that costs more money.

Also, this is a good pot that is low maintenance.




u/DarkwingDuc · 2 pointsr/Watches

>Cant say honestly that it looks more expensive than it is though

It's only $118 on Amazon, $136 with bracelet.

I haven't found anything even close to that cheap that looks and feels as good. And I've gotten more complements on it than on much, much more expensive watches I own.

u/EZ-Bake · 2 pointsr/Seiko

If you want a Chronograph, then I agree 100% - this is a great choice. It's also available in a Black Bezel

There is also an older version of their non-solar Quartz diver with a Chronograph called the SNAE25 (I don't know that I would buy this one on Amazon as it doesn't come with warranty).

If you can give up the Chronograph, then you have the Monster and Classic Divers to look at.

Good luck!

If you are set on getting him a watch and don't want to talk with him up front... get a Seiko Black Monster and be done with it. You know he is interested in mechanical watches, so I would stay away from anything quartz, solar, ecotech, etc. Also available in PVD.

u/BillBraasky · 1 pointr/Watches

The classic G-Shock is great when you're doing things that you probably don't want to be wearing an expensive watch for anyway.

u/HungreeHippo · 1 pointr/Watches

Or, instead of trying to get them something 'fancy' for $50, go with something actually useful like a G-Shock. If your buddies workout or do things outdoors, they'd def use it.

u/gleam · 1 pointr/Watches

More seriously, if I were looking for a gshock I'd probably be leaning towards this one. Solar, atomic, chrono, WR 200. A touch over your budget, but not much.

A cheaper alternative, not solar, not atomic, and not as good looking, but still WR 200 would be a DW6900.

u/eudaimonean · 1 pointr/Watches

You're probably thinking of Casio G-Shocks. Versions with altimeters and compasses tend to be more expensive ($200-300) but there are plenty that come in around $50 with chronograph, time, second time zone, etc. functions.

https://www.amazon.com/Casio-G-Shock-Quartz-Resin-Sport/dp/B000GAYQLI

The G-Shock is not expensive but is considered an iconic brand in horological history, for this reason it has its own cult following (deservedly so.) Quality-wise it's also going to just straight up last a long time compared to the cheapo G-Shock knock-offs that try to imitate its looks.

The Timex Marathon and Ironman are alternatives that are also solid and well-made, albeit without the G-Shock's enthusiast following:

u/dog_in_the_vent · 1 pointr/flying

I've had a Casio G-Shock Classic for years, hasn't failed me yet. Has an easy to use stopwatch and timer, and illuminates for night flying. It's a little bulky though.

I'd recommend against an analog watch, they can be harder to read in turbulence. Digitals are much easier to read at a quick glance, where analogs can lead to one or two minute errors unless you take a close look at the watch.

u/SirKevinus · 1 pointr/Watches

Seiko 5 is the only mechanical option here, but I'll skip hyperlinks because others already mentioned Seiko 5.

Here are my top quartz choices that you should consider:

  1. Timex analog - Family of weekender, easy reader, expedition, etc. My vote goes to expedition:
    http://www.amazon.com/Timex-T49905-Expedition-Rugged-Leather/dp/B0083XFHIG/

  2. Digital watches - G shock is my favorite. It looks quite manly in person, and its functionality for an active high school student would be perfect.
    http://www.amazon.com/Casio-DW9052-1V-G-Shock-Stainless-Digital/dp/B000GAYQLI/

  3. Casio analog - Edifice, MDV (diver), MTP (dressy), and others. I suggest the Edifice:

Good to see a new rider not letting the weather change get in the way of having a great time.

$12 silk glove liners from Amazon make a huge difference with the fingers. I wear Thinsulite insulated gauntlets that will keep any air out of the sleeve on top of them as well. The only thing I deal with is the same stiff fingers that gripping the bars too tight will do (lots of traffic in the SF Bay Area, even during the holidays).

The trick for the rest of it is to not let any cold air in and to make sure each part of your body has as much insulation as the rest. Any exposed skin is going to shed heat and make the entire area around it feel cold. You're already wearing chaps, gauntlets, and a gaiter of some kind on your face, ears and very importantly, neck. Also, your windshield goes a long long long way to making cold-weather riding enjoyable.

A heavy hoodie under the leather jacket is essential for cold weather riding (with a hood that you can wear under your lid if necessary, or that turns into an insulated collar under your jacket), and Underarmor or Ice Breaker thermal underwear and even heavy knee socks will go a long way to keeping you toasty warm in the cold. She should put on a pair of leg warmers under her chaps, and/or pants. My passengers all say that's the biggest factor in keeping their legs warm (I have a couple sets in the cold-weather gear box in the garage).

I wear knit watch cap pulled down low over a long fleece gaiter that reaches from inside my collar to over my ears and lower face. I leave only a slit for my eyes/glasses. When it's really cold like last night, I wrap a thin fleece scarf around it all and down the front of my chest under the hoodie. Closing it all in the jacket collar makes a nice wind seal at the neck.

Rode 110 miles at 80+ last night in 38-45F temps and so long as I kept my feet on the footboards and off the freeway pegs (no air was coming up the legs under the chaps), I was toasty warm dressed exactly that way. You might look into a set of mid pegs (not controls if you like the forwards) so your legs will be bent to keep cold air out. If it's not pouring or icy out, I'll ride instead of drive if I can. Made 480 miles of trips back and forth to my folks' house 60 miles away this week (only 4 trips, but 120 miles each trip), and all of it in sub-50F temps.

My brother in law who lives in Dallas couldn't believe I rode that far in 40F weather on purpose, and that I did it again and again and again. But once he watched me get dressed to head home, he understood. I am toasty warm the whole way. I think the farthest I've ridden in 35-45F weather was last Christmas- 600-650 mile round trip. The last hour coming home I was actually unhappy. The rest of it was gravy. Couldn't go to the bathroom easily, but I was warm. :p

Anyway, it's good to see you riding in the winter. Ride safe.

u/Qu1nlan · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thermasilk glove liners. I own 5 pairs and literally never leave the house without a pair in my pocket. They are lightweight, warm, and don't at all obstruct mobility. Great for fall or winter, or even cold summer nights depending on climate. My number will be 104!

u/FerretWithASpork · 1 pointr/calmhands

u/klew3 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

There are lots of watches linked to there but they all seem pretty good. And I'll throw in that I got this Orient black Mako on watchyouseek for about $70 used and in perfect condition though it took about a month for the right watch to pop up.

u/hurricanefalcon · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Seiko SKX007

Deep Blue Pro Diver 1k

Orient Mako

Bernhardt Binnacle Anchor

All of these are sub 300, and only one is more than 200. They're highly praised on Watchuseek in the Affordable Forum. It has tons of advice on mechanicals that won't break the bank

u/CopyrightedThought · 1 pointr/Watches

So do you want a diver or a business casual dress watch? The two watches you posted are VERY different in terms of where they work. Regardless, I would shy away from the Invicta. Here
is a higher quality diver, the Orient Mako, that is virtually the same. Same dimensions and everything.

It's hard to tell by your post but it seems you want this for the purpose of being able to dress it up more than dress it down. If you are willing to save another hundred dollars I think you could do well with the Hamilton Khaki Field. Can be either dressed up or down quite easily and goes well on a NATO.

Otherwise, dress watches like a Rodina or Orient Bambino might be more up your alley. Good luck!

u/kappuru · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Get this instead. 100 bucks, great quality, nice movement, and you won't cry when you scrape it against a rock. (you are going diving with this thing, right?)

u/Sharkbite0592 · 1 pointr/Watches

The 7K2 would be better in my opinion, it is 3mm bigger than your Invicta so it should fit fine, and the reviews on the 7K2 are better than the reviews on the 9K2 as well.
Also, for $10 more you can get an Orient Black Mako diver watch which has better reviews than both of them, just throwing it out there for you in case you're interested! http://www.amazon.com/Orient-CEM65001B-Black-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416272316&sr=8-1&keywords=Orient+Mako

u/satanicwaffles · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

The Seiko 5 SNK809 and the SNZG13 would be my recommendations for that price range. Also, take a peek at the Orient Mako.

Here's a Mako

u/FightGar · 1 pointr/beermoney

Funny. I've been doing swagbucks, amazon turk and paidveiwpoint for a few weeks and planned on getting either an Orient Mako or a Seiko Diver soon. I haven't cashed out in either but I figure I have roughly $120 from doing both with little effort.

That is a very nice watch, hope you enjoy it.

If you are looking for a nice, versatile watch I highly recommend Orient's Mako with a black or blue face. http://www.amazon.com/Orient-CEM65001B-Black-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3A

Very easy to read, even at night. I wear mine everyday. It is built like a tank. It looks nice with my business suits, at the gym after work, in the pool, or at a weekend bbq. It is even an automatic if you are into that kind of thing.

It may not be a minimalist lifestyle to have a watch and we can argue whether the Mako is a minimalist design, but I've chosen it b/c I like wearing a watch and it is the only watch I may ever need.

u/avian_gator · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I'd check out Seiko, Orient and Citizen for good brands that make quality watches in the <$200 range.

My daily wear watch is an Orient Mako, which I scored for less than $100 on Amazon. It's solid, has a very reliable and accurate automatic movement (meaning it's a self-winding mechanical watch, rather than battery powered), and it looks amazing.

I would personally recommend that you look for a watch from a reputable manufacturer, rather than buying an overpriced fashion watch. Someone else already mentioned taking a look at /r/watches, which I heartily second.

u/Ragemeister · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

The Orient Mako is currently at its lowest price EVER on amazon.com

Mine is on the way in the mail, but from the reviews I have read it is an EXCELLENT timepiece at an unbeatable price. It's classy, yet versatile. You could easily take this from the farm, to the beach, to 200m underwater, and right back up to the Met for an opera (Oprah?).

I get that you are looking for more of a street watch but you will regret the purchase of a g-shock as soon as you turn 15.

u/mattgold · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Orient watches are slightly above your price range, but for the price they really can't be beat. You get an automatic that you can swap the band on for a NATO band. Orient Mako

u/C0smo__Kramer · 1 pointr/Watches

Unfortunately, the bracelet is where a lot of the low end watches skimp at. There are some good options though.

If you want an automatic, I would go with an Orient Mako (although the endlinks and pins are a little cheap) or a Seiko Monster.

If you want quartz, I would look at the Casio Edifice line or maybe a Bulova Precisionist. Tissot Classic Dream if you want something a little fancier.

This is just a starting point, read the sidebar and search around until you find something that suits you. Also, if possible try on as many watches in person to really get a feel for what you like.

u/GenkiLawyer · 1 pointr/Watches

If you want a diver style watch, the Orient Mako has periodically gone on sale for $100-$105 on Amazon. It is currently $130, but the price seems to fluctuate quite a bit.

http://www.amazon.com/Orient-Mens-CEM65002D-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3K

u/skipsmagee · 1 pointr/Watches

Watch or jewelry shops in your area might have some. For budget-friendly options, try Hadley Roma on Amazon, usually $15-30. You just need a small screwdriver and a steady hand to push back the spring bar from the lug on the watch case. You'll typically need a width of 22mm, maybe 20 or 24; just measure the distance between the lugs or check the specs.

For a high quality watch for your dollar, especially your first (or first serious) watch, try a Citizen Eco-drive, Seiko, or Orient. Many of these don't require a battery change every couple years: the Eco-drives charge its battery from any light source, though this battery may have to be replaced after a decade. An Automatic winding watch, like the Seiko 5 line or the Orient Mako or Ray, use the movement of a counterweight (rotor) while you wear it to store energy in a spring. This energy will run out after about 1.5 days, so either wear it or shake it around every day.

A Timex Expedition served me well for a while, but I sure like my Citizens, Orient Ray, and Seiko 5 Military.

u/aselbst · 1 pointr/Watches

Maybe paintball is not ideal for it, but I think of my Orient Mako as a pretty all purpose watch, and I'd be surprised if stainless doesn't clean well after paintball. One of my favorites and $125 at amazon

G-Shock. Take your pick. I prefer the multiband radio atomic models such as the GW-6900.

u/Ruff_Dog · 1 pointr/EDC

I have this G Shock. It's a tank. It autosyncs with the atomic clock for increased accuracy (so you never have to set it, even for DST, time travel, etc.) and it's solar powered.

u/DoktorLoken · 1 pointr/army

Be prepared to be told to not wear a watch during basic but I'd get a decent solar/atomic G-Shock: http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GW6900-1-G-Shock-Atomic-Digital/dp/B00284ADAI they're indestructible and really are perfect watches for military use. Just don't be that weirdo who shows up with a huge Suunto.

u/Sterling_____Archer · 1 pointr/EDC

I've owned all of the listed watches in this post, and I can say the most economical choice would be a G-Shock, by Casio.

I've ruined every watch that wasn't a G-Shock while searching for something stylish, and just gave up. Toughness or GTFO, lol.

The model I wear daily has solar-charging, so you won't ever have to replace a battery. It's pretty much the wrist-powered watch style, but replaced with a tiny PV-panel on the face.

It's $82, so $32 over your budget, but well worth the money.

Cheapest solar g shocks:

GWM500A-1 - $70

GW6900-1 - $76.50

GWM5610-1 - $84, easily the most popular cheap g shock

I recommend going through this thread for bluetooth functions

But really the only thing I use it for is to check the battery level, but while doing that it automatically time syncs. I don't live somewhere where I always get atomic.

u/highandtightgshock · 1 pointr/Watches

You may consider the GW-6900. It has the classic design of the DW-6900 with the technological advancements of solar power and atomic time sync. It's a great watch that is an homage to the classic g-shocks.

Additionally, you may consider this thread on watchuseek.

u/pokstad · 1 pointr/gshock

The Rangeman is really nice but it's also very large and thick so it can interfere a lot with daily tasks. Slimmer profile watches are better for not getting in the way. I would check out the 5600 or 6900 series watches:

u/Seeker80 · 1 pointr/Watches

You've got a pretty diverse set of options. There's stuff like this Tissot. It fits the bill technically, but would also wear through your whole budget. You'd have to decide if you really want to pay that much for an automatic Tissot, when you really want an Omega. Quartz models are also far cheaper, so that's another consideration.

You can come in far under budget with a quartz Casio Edifice. This can reasonably scratch the itch, and you can spend the rest of the budget on other watches you want, or whatever.

You can also just spend a little more for a secondhand Speedmaster automatic in the first place.

u/LaunchGap · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

i have the casio edifice and i love it. the case is the same size as the mako, but it lays on the wrist very well and doesn't look too big. the mako looks very bulky on my wrist. the casio has solid links too if you're into bracelets. aside from the casio, i would stay under 41mm tho. my wrists are 6.5".

u/Krampus_Nemesis · 1 pointr/Watches

Start by checking out the r/watches buying guide for watches under $250. There are a lot of good recommendations in there. The Casio MDV106 can be had for less than $70 (and often goes on sale for less than $50) and it does a good job of giving a Rolex Submariner-ish look without being a straight-up copy. You mentioned that you like the look of the Omega Speedmaster, so take a look at the Casio EF503D for a similar look and much lower price. If you're looking for a mechanical, there are lots of good options listen in the buying guide, like the Seiko SKX007, which shares some visual similarities to the Rolex Sub, but very much has it's own distinct design as well.

Watch

Strap

I was never a fan of bracelets, especially since I have small wrists and the sizing makes the clasp sit awkwardly. I had a devil of a time finding a small, quality strap but finally managed to, even though shipping from Germany takes a bit of time (2 weeks, in this case, slightly prolonged because of holidays I'm sure).

The padding helps the strap match the case thickness better, but it's rather inflexible and the shortness of the strap doesn't help there. Overall, though, I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

Those are completely different styles. The Brad Pitt watch might be a Hamilton field watch or one from anybody else, though the Hamilton packs a lot of horological style points. But if you don't care about that you can get a Timex or Seiko field watch -- or just get the Ben Sherman fashion watch and be happy with how it looks.

I don't know if they're on sale or if the brand is good...finding day/date chronographs is quite difficult and it's unlikely you'll find them for less than $1000 (outside of a Christopher Ward C40, which isn't a pilot) or clean looking (Citizen does have the A-T Perpetual Chrono, again, not a pilot, but it does have some good travel features like atomic clock syncing).

Otherwise, this Hamilton should be in your budget.

u/IIKiboshII · 1 pointr/Watches

If you're looking for an 'Aviator' in that price range, I'd say this [Hamilton] (http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-H64611535-Khaki-Pilot-Black/dp/B0043RWFO0/ref=pd_sim_sbs_241_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=515gXpaE97L&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR103%2C160_&refRID=0BZVPT56563Z8Y1KPNMG) is great. It comes with different strap options, like metal, and some variations to the dial and day/dates, look around!

As far as skeleton watches go, there are plenty of good ones. I know this [Bulova] (http://www.amazon.com/Bulova-96A119-Silver-Black-Mechanical/dp/B004OSBJ0Y/ref=sr_1_106?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1450739705&sr=1-106&nodeID=6358539011&keywords=watch&refinements=p_36%3A30000-50000%2Cp_89%3ABulova) made one is very well received, however it's more of an open heart. It also comes in many colors and strap options.

I can't decide which watch to get, would you guys mind helping me out?

So far I'm looking at Casio F91W, [Casio W800H-1AV] (https://www.amazon.com/Casio-W800H-1AV-Classic-Sport-Watch/dp/B001AWZDA4/ref=zg_bs_6358540011_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=W0MB4NW36A7WRN4S8P1Q), Casio F108WH, Casio W800HG-9AV, and this one (Amazon just called it "Casio Men's Digital Watch"). Any help and/or other watch suggestions around the same price point with similar features would be greatly appreciated

As of 8 hours ago this is my watch. Had to start spending Christmas money at some point, I guess, though for some reason this $12 watch feels like an odd way to start.

Completely unrelated: Computer power users, do you have any suggestions for peripherals for someone who does everything from his laptop and moves around a lot? My main computer tasks are programming, redditing, and very light image editing (paint.net, not PS or anything like that). I've been thinking of getting an external monitor for a while, but I can't tell if it'd be worth it or if there's anything else that might be more useful.

Also since I likely won't be back in this thread until then, early happy new year everyone!

u/DiscoPanda84 · 1 pointr/MLPLounge

Well, my usual outfit involves a black t-shirt, black cargo pants, black socks, black leather boots, and a black cap (the kind with a round panel for the top instead of big wedges). The cap also has one of these attached to it.

Also my watch (a cheap $11 Casio with a black nylon replacement band added after the original (plastic? rubber?) band broke) and a couple chainmail bracelets (the rubber rings are black and the annodized aluminum rings cycle through a repeating pattern of blue/blue/blue/green

If I get cold I can also throw on a black hoodie. :-P

Best budget leather strap to replace the one that comes with this Seiko watch?

Navy Seals:

The Best G-Shock Military Watches Under $100

It’s no secret that Casio G-Shock watches are very popular with service members. For under $100 it’s the best military watch that can stand up to the most demanding use and the harshest environments.

Military Dress Codes:

While certain units may have their own dress codes, there aren’t any strict regulations on wearing watches in the military other than to keep it simple and conservative. Regarding jewelry in Army Regulation 670–1, the U.S. Army states “Soldiers may wear a wristwatch … with Army uniforms, unless prohibited by the commander for safety or health reasons,” and goes on to say “Any jewelry or monitors worn by Soldiers while in uniform or in civilian clothes on duty must be conservative.”

2201 of the U.S. Navy’s Uniform Regulations states “Wristwatch / Bracelets. While in uniform, only one of each may be worn.”

In AFI 36-2903, the U.S. Air Force is more specific on what constitutes a conservative watch and says, “Conservative examples (not all inclusive) are solid color black, brown, silver or gold. Prohibited examples are diamond-covered, neon, bright colors, and bands that exceed 1-inch width..”

The U.S. Marines Corps Uniform Regulations state “Inconspicuous watches are authorized for wear in uniform.”

Based on these regulations we can be safe to assume that any dark, solid-color G-Shock watch is acceptable for military use in any branch.

While any G-Shock model can handle the rigors of military life, we’ve chosen the following watches for their conservative styling, low prices, features/usability, and battery life. We’ve left out the pricier Master of G and aviation models which could also be good military watches and are sticking to the basics for those who just need a reliable timepiece to use in the field with basic features like a stopwatch and countdown timer.

Tough Solar G-Shock Watches: One major decision to make when buying a G-Shock is whether to buy a watch that has the Tough Solar feature. With Tough Solar watches, the battery can last up to 9-10 months after a full charge, and the battery will continue to recharge whenever exposed to light, so a dying battery is not a concern. The rechargeable battery is expected to last for many years (in many cases beyond 10) and will generally outlast a normal battery. So a Tough Solar watch is a good choice if you expect to be somewhere remote for a while where you can’t change the battery. We usually prefer Tough Solar watches, but also keep in mind that the regular batteries tend to last a lot longer than their estimated life if you don’t use the backlight a lot.

Standard G-Shock Features: All the following watches have the G-Shock standard features: shock resistance, water resistance up to 200 meters, 12 or 24 hour formats, and an electro-luminescent backlight or LED light. Unless otherwise noted, they also feature world time, auto calender, 4 daily alarms including 1 snooze alarm, stopwatch, countdown timer, and button tone on/off setting. All selections have a a resin band for easy adjustment and maximum comfort.

THE BEST G-SHOCK MILITARY WATCHES UNDER $100

Note: Prices may have fluctuated from the time of publication and some watches may currently be over $100. Also models might be priced higher than $100 on international Amazon sites.

G-SHOCK G100-1BV

The G100-1BV adheres to the military’s K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid) principle for those who prefer a no-nonsense watch with analog hands. The time or date is also shown on a small digital display and the watch features magnetic resistance, 1 daily alarm, stopwatch, and auto calender. The battery is rated for 3 years.

PROS: Simple design, easy to see analog style
CONS: No countdown timer, no world time, adjusting the time can take a while

G100-1BV G-Shock Simple Military Watch

G100-1BV on Amazon G100-1BV on eBay
G-SHOCK GWM530A-1

The GWM530A-1 is one of the sleeker looking G-Shocks with a relatively low profile and has Multi-Band 6 capability for automatic time syncing via radio signals from transmitting stations in the US, UK, Germany, Japan (2), and China. A distinct advantage of this watch is that the digits on the LCD display are very large compared to other G-Shocks.

PROS: Large display, solar charging, Multi-Band 6
CONS: The design style is not as distinctive compared to other G-Shocks

GWM530A-1 G-Shock Solar Military Watch

GWM530A-1 on Amazon GWM530A-1 on eBay
G-SHOCK GW6900-1

The simple and confident looking GW6900-1 has an easily accessible EL backlight button on the front of the case which makes it a good choice for those operating in the dark. The DW6900-1V is a more affordable option with the same case but it lacks Tough Solar charging, Multi-Band 6, and world time. The GW6900 descends from the DW6600 which was the first G-Shock with the EL backlight and was issued to Navy SEALS.

One like this will give off very little light at night due to reverse display, and, looks good with uniform:

GW-M5610

Normal Square, smaller than a King. I love this size, I prefer it to the bigger ones.

For comparison, here's the same watch on amazon. At the current massdrop price, it's not a deal (with 7.50 shipping). At the lowest price, probably an ok deal if you were already going to buy this exact watch.

u/Coelacanth7 · 1 pointr/EDC

Here is the Amazon link

I like it a lot. Its the Japanese version and it has a retro style, which is why it so much more expensive than the other atomic clock versions. I have been wearing it everyday for 2 years now.

u/ampersammich · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I will never be able to afford an Omega Seamaster. This is the closest I will ever come, and I fucking love it:

http://www.amazon.com/Orient-EM65009D-Automatic-Diver-Watch/dp/B00A6U2EYE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416465154&sr=8-1&keywords=orient+blue+ray

If you wait for an Amazon code for 20% off, it'll be under 150. I was able to catch it at 139 bucks. I think you can find it on eBay (brand new) for around 130. I plan to swap the bracelet out for a shark mesh bracelet.

u/SGrimley · 1 pointr/Watches
u/HDRgument · 1 pointr/Watches

It's a common type of watch and price point, there is plenty of stuff here, on forums like watchuseek, and on youtube to search through.

I am a novice, fully admit that I know nothing, but just did this research myself. I agree with /u/nephros.

The other ones that I looked at were Invicta and Parnis. I crossed them off my list because they're designed specifically to look like Rolex submariners and I thought Seiko/Orient had higher quality. I'd rather pay for quality than pay for imitation. You may find the lookalike factor as a positive or negative, for whatever reason. I think it's a huge negative, but that's a dead horse.

FWIW, I ended up with the Orient Ray, which you can get on Amazon for $136 in blue right now (the black version is a hair over your budget unless you get it with a rubber strap).

Here's the thread I posted earlier about it: http://www.reddit.com/r/Watches/comments/2zjhwg/novice_is_there_any_reason_i_should_not_buy_an/

u/Corix · 1 pointr/Watches

if i had 300 extra dollars to burn on a diver watch this would be mine without question

u/X-FER · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

You can get them on amazon, that's where mine came from. And they've gone down in price lately!

u/limited_reddition · 1 pointr/Watches

"Analog" G-Shocks are nice but I think the nice ones (i.e. A1100/A1000) are out of your price range. For a mechanical option I recommend the Seiko Monster, like the SRP309 or the SRP311.

u/Mrsmith4 · 1 pointr/Watchexchange
u/thejoollygiant · 1 pointr/Watches

I'm trying to decide between two Seiko's at the moment.

The Seiko SUN025 link

The Seiko SRP307 link

Obviously the Seiko SRP307 is the more known of the two watches being the Black Monster is one of the most iconic Seiko's around, but I'm not really sure between the two. I don't "dive" all that frequently, although I do spend a lot of my free time at the beach and the pool.

However, I've also been enamored with the Rolex Explorer II ever since I was young and saw my uncle wearing one. Being that I'm a college kid on a budget, the Explorer will have to wait until after graduation, but the SUN025 seems like a great place holder for a style of watch that I love.

What do you guys think? Does anyone have any experience with either watch?

u/005 · 1 pointr/Watches

Would you consider the SKX007 or Black Monster (and here's Gen 2)? These are somewhat obvious suggestions, but the quality of the cases on these two are so much better than the Seiko 5s. The Gen 2 is especially interesting because it uses a 4R36 movement, which has a hacking seconds hand. That said, the SKX007 is prettier IMO.

u/zaxldaisy · 0 pointsr/vegas

Hey, genius. Here's one for $43

u/whatisthis147 · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

No, that's not what you're looking for. The only reason you'd get a Timex is because you want to save money, right? If you're willing to put in extra money for a watch band, you should just get a better watch altogether. There is no point in upgrading a Timex; it's like getting getting a new paint job for your busted pickup instead of getting a nice sedan. These are some great alternatives. 1 2 3 This site is pretty good for cheap straps.

Still not seeing what you mean. I can't find an SKX007J with both straps for less than $200 on Amazon. Would love to see a link.

Honestly? A good tech or finance internship pays 5 to 6k a month. And some people can TA and RA during the semester. Factor in scholarships and parental support and viola--lots of money.

When I graduted college I was debt free and managed to buy a handful of these and smash them in front of poor people.
