Thread: Is this the first "help me find a watch thread"?

  1. #1

    Is this the first "help me find a watch thread"?

    HOW EXCITING!

    Completely unexpectedly I got given a 50 Amazon voucher at work yesterday.

    What should I buy???

    So far tempted by...

    G-Shock G7900 (but then I have owned the red one before and flipped it)

    Seiko SNK805 (but already have the 809)

    Hirsch Pure rubber strap for my Seamaster (but it's just a strap)

    Swatch Sir Red

    ...or Sir Blue

    Or something else - as long as it's not too big (ideally <40mm) and is available for <50 on Amazon UK

    Cheers, ladles and jellyspoons

    Check our Gigandet chronos. Or just but the Seiko. That's the approved WIS thing to day isn't it?

    I like the look of a lot of the Gigandets, but they're too large and over budget

    Sometimes they drop under 50. I saw some Invicta divers (8928, the decent ones) for 50 quid yesterday. Usually about 70.

    Not far over budget at 56... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigandet-VOL...words=gigandet

    Cheers, at 43mm that's just too big for me though. Invicta is a good suggestion, but I already have an 8926

    Sorry thought it was smaller. How about a Timex. Got an Iron Man of Amazon for 15 quid last month

    Eg 28 quid. Timex Sport Ironman Fullsize Multi-function Triathlon 30 Lap - T5E931 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000JNHL..._JxlCub1MP182S
