I've always sorta planned on getting a Tissot, and had basically made up my mind on a Le Locle, but as it's really looking like I'll be heading back to Hawaii next year--and nobody wears those "dressy" tiny watches in Hawaii--I'm sticking to mainly diver/sport type watches that I can actually wear in casual clothing and also with Hawaii's version of "dress clothes," which is slacks and an aloha shirt.
Besides, I've already got my Seiko SCVS003 for dressy events where I might need a watch that fits under a cuff.
The Seastar 1000 is a watch that I'd always admired, but never really considered getting. Perhaps I thought that $600 was a bit much for a "lesser" name Swiss watch. Well, I only now figured out that those f'ers drop down into the mid-$300s range, so...
Rumor has it that I can score one of these for $350 online, and even Amazon is offering them for about $380. Of course, this watch isn't on my list of things to buy RIGHT NOW, but I do think this would be a nice Summer present to myself, when I return stateside on business in July. Matter of fact, I'll be picking up the VX-200 I won on Ebay when I return home, and two watches is always better than one!
So, does anyone here own one? Any reason why I should steer clear of this one?
