I agree.... Although I'm not a big fan of their bands... (easy enough to fix the band)
The 6066 has 3 time zone displays (I like to have at least 2) and an alarm..
Now if I only had an extra $4,000...
Eventually.

Seiko is on the radar. Invicta Diver looks gooood. I have some reading to do. I'm going to miss those moths in my wallet.

Thanks guys.
I have three Invicta Divers and a few other Invictas with the same movement, that movement is a Citizen movement, and workhorse is commonly what it is refered to. It is very robust, and accurate for a cheaper non certified movement. Here's one of them, the Ocean Ghost, a whopping $120.00 and it looks like a 15K watch.

Doable?
Here's what you want (where "you" really equals "me", but hey this is the interwebs and it's not like I'm earning any money for this referral ...)

Look at the specs on the Seiko SNK809K2

http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-Nylon-Se.../dp/B000M0XJ88

Then go buy one for ~$61.59 on FleeBay.

I've had my eye on this puppy for a while now.

(ahem).

If anyone is interested, I'm looking to move one of these along. Sinn 857. Not a scratch on it, but you know, I have this other obsession. . . it involves two. . . .



Wheels.

Question for all the gurus here. I have a watch that I love and posted a while back. For reference:



Love this watch. However, I need a dress watch but am getting pretty adamant about no batteries. So I know the Citizen has their movement, and from what I've seen here, Seiko has some as well. I/we don't have the type of income to afford thousands of dollars for a watch at this stage in our lives (I'd rather buy another motorcycle anyway).

As such, how does one know if it is a battery or non battery powered watch? I see a whole bunch of obscure ones here that are really cool. I'd like something unique (a Rolex is not unique to me) and classy, but does denote a bit of adventure. I also like a lot of functions (see above).

How can I start my research on something like this? I'm getting married soon and she is asking me what type of watch I'd like.
