And then I went and posted that Bulova nonsense in GNG the other day...
Well, just for the sake of doing it, I'll repost my thread here and see what you folks think! Parding me if you've already seen it. Here's the deal:
I need a quartz watch just to keep track of the time, since I'm constantly rotating automatic watches and refuse to use a winder. I was thinking about picking up this Citizen Promaster Eco-Drive for about $250 (red bezel, I posted it here before) but I thought I might give a that Bulova Swiss quartz a try.
Here it is:
I'll admit, the band is quite odd, and the face looks like some cheap copy of a Patek Moon Phase, but there's just something about it that makes me want it...and not just the fact that it retails for $350 and I can get it for $99 nowadays. Plus, it has one of those fruity butterfly hidden-clasp things going on, and I still don't have a watch like that.
I'm preeeetty sure I'll be getting this watch sometime this week:
...so I'm all set for the year, as far as big, flashy divers go. But being that the VX-200 retails for almost a grand, and I'm gonna get it for about $250, I thought I might splurge a bit and blow an extra Benjamin on something odd.
So basically, who here think it's BUTT UGLY, who here thinks it's "OK," who here would buy it because it's f'in cheap, and who here is gonna sneak off to the men's room with a printout copy of the pictures for some self-gratification and hand relief?
