    ****Nautica the good the bad the ugly ****

    well Nautica watches get a load of bad press but yes they are over prices yes they are a fashion brand . but not all fashion brands should be demiss out of hand with out looking at them.


    I have this one.







    when new it was 159.99 which is just ridiculous.


    I bought it at 39.99 second hand hardly used it came in a rather lovely wood box.




    and some of the other models are quite nice




    But to me they are a bit of fun and also to me a 50 quid watch all day long I would say they are no worse or better then say timex or accurist which I also like when they are price at a sensible price of sub 50 new




    come on show your nautica's




    would I have bought it now ( bought about 5 years back ) yes probably as I said not all fashion brands are bad I think they should be given a chance to show what they have got.




    I have a love of all watches new and old and think all should be looked at fairly and if they don't interest you there are lot's of other threads to look at

    I like the one that looks like the new Tudor Ranger. Is Nautica a Timex brand?

    to be honest not sure. I might just have a look at who owns them I was taking the watch on face value then more who makes them but it would be good to see who Nautica is ?

    you got a pic of that one

    See I always ranked nautica alongside invicta.
    And as you know I like Invicta!

    Nautica are good vfm 2nd hand .

    Like Invicta they range from tasteful to tasteless

    yes I like an invicta and they get a load of bad press as well and the most comment is the ridiculous mark up price being the main one ... which I agree with but saying that I have saw several invicta that I will have when I see them at the price I want to pay lol so yeah agree with you their mate
