    Kentex watches...anybody got one??

    Came across this japanese brand the other day and from what i've read they make decent watches at a good price,

    the skyman pilot range caught my attention with the different dial combos that are available, look like good value.

    around 150+

    43mm
    miyota 8215
    Sapphire crystal
    22mm lugs

    No experience with it but it looks like an Alpina Startimer.

    not really my cup of tea but they do have some nice features love the crown also size and shape is good the black and the silver dial's are nice but just a tad expensive I would have expected around the ton price point
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    That's what drew me to it, although the Alpina is quartz and priced at 650, which makes the kentex look even better!

    I like their stuff, particularly their military/pilot styling.
    I became aware of the brand over on the other place. They've been around for a while (OEM manufacturer since 1989, own brand since 1998) but haven't had much visibility outside Asia. They do divers too
    Personally, if you like that watch, then go for it - looks like great value
