#255

citizen is a nice japanese brand and that looks like a nice quartz watch. dunno what model or anything


#256

at risk of looking like a complete idiot i’m somehow seriously considering buying this:

Is this trash? what else should be getting instead for not more than this amount of money?


#257

couple things

  • 43mm is pretty big

  • doesn’t look like it uses normal spring bars, so you won’t get to do all the strap change stuff

  • miyota 2035 movement is a $5 movement like most quartz, but it seems fine

  • you’re paying for the other stuff - case, finishing, strap, etc. be very careful! read a lot of views and see if they’ve sanded stuff properly, the wood doesn’t chip, the leather is comfortable, etc. sometimes with these novelty watches they figure they can skimp on the stuff that actually makes it wear well. e.g.

tl;dr get it if it strikes your fancy, but it’s a wood fashion watch so dont expect it to last forever.

w/ $75 you have a fair number of options for quartz steel watches. alternatively, at $75 you’d be just breaking into entry-level mechanical movements; something like a seiko 5 or a swatch.

you get a bunch of these around $20 if you search “bobo bird” on ali express


#259

At that price point, you can come join Team Unreliable Russian Watches and get on that Vostok Amphibia.


#260

also a bunch of neat timex around that price
