I just the Omega back from Omega Switzerland and they refinished watch. I really love the new Rolex (I think it is GMT as well) with polished ceramic bezel. It look like engraved bezel. I was telling a friend about it in US as this is the new hot watch in Singapore. Did not see on the Rolex site?? Same style watch as the blue and black bezel, but with a polished ceramic bezel. Very hot...

I want to sell or trade in the X-33 on that Rolex or the new IWC Aquatimer. Both I thought were the two newest cool watches that weren't over sized or way too expensive like Blancpain I've seen recently.

Anyone know much about problems with invicta metal watch bands? My big one I bought a while back is kinda hinky on one side. The six o clock side where it fits up to the case seems sloppy and there is a gap between the band and case, the other side isn't like that.

That's neat. Eterna is an excellent value brand that's pretty popular in Switzerland. I believe they are made in Biel where our machine shop is.

For this one? Trade value is about the same, bracelets and rubber strap included with mine and the Orient, pretty much same sizes, Orient is just a nicer watch, what would you do?

I'd do the trade, but I'm trying to down size my watch quantity somewhat, so I might be projecting a bit. The orient is a nice looking watch, just a little bit nicer than the Seiko but pretty close in my book.

I would make the trade as well. That is unless you just like having more watches that look alike.

It's looks to be a very versatile watch, would look good in any of configurations.

Orient 300 came today, this is a nice chunk, way to big for the stock bracelet, glad I ordered another one that will be here fri. Winding is smooth as butter, bezel is the same, seems like a good trade

Well our annual bonus was pretty good this year, so I picked up a watch I had my eye on for awhile, not my picture, I'll post up a pick when it arrives.
