    skagen watches are fairly cheap. you'd be hard to find one over 150. they look awesome and look far more expensive than they are :agreed:

    ^Agreed. Though, I did have to replace the crystal face on mine twice already, and it's got a scratch on it now and I won't replace it a third time as that will end up costing me more than the watch originally, or close to. It was my fault of course, but yeah just an FYI. They are really nice and the mesh bands are pretty comfortable coming from a guy with pretty damn hairy arms.

    Tbh this is my favorite watch that I've owned. I've never owned a fancy one, but this one is easily the most comfortable I've had, and I kinda dig that retro digital look.

    Does anyone know where one can get started in repairing watches? I'd love to pick it up as a hobby.

    Mine looks like this.

    [​IMG]

    I got it on my 22nd birthday when on holiday in Florida with my family. Still looks as good as the day I got it.

    My wife got me another watch by Police but it's square faced which I find uncomfortable so I don't wear it often unless I need something a bit smarter.

    A guy I work with actually just started doing this. He went to one of those kiosks at the mall where you get small repair and replacement work done. He makes $8.75/hr learning how watches work and taking them apart (but mostly working the register). He hasn't started doing the work yet, but he's starting slow and only works there like once a week for four or five hours. If you have the time and willing to sacrifice a chunk of a Saturday or Sunday, might as well get paid to learn.

    For the record, the guy is a steamfitter and makes ~$65 and hour, so he's not working there for the cash.

    That said, it's the Internet Age. Go watch (no pun) some YouTubes and read some articles about it online. I'm sure there is a wealth of info out there, even forums.

    just pulled the trigger on this beauty
    [​IMG]

    now i'm on pursuit for a dressy-ish brown watch. only requirement, less than $200, and if its leather, its not pig skin leather.

    i was looking at kenneth coles, skagen etc and their belts have had bad reviews as they apparently are constantly breaking

    i order, clock wise from top left:
    skagen, movado, skagen, nameless, the real penguin.

    i love the real penguin watch as it has a wooden dial with a penguin etched in the wood. its hard to see. its hands also have mini penguins on them

    oh movado, how beautiful thou art!
