    Suggestions for new watch

    Hey gents ive decided to purchase a new watch and its a type that i do not currently own. Im looking for an automatic skeleton watch with blue hands and must have some sort of metal band i do not like the leather or rubber ones. Also id like to keep the case diameter around 38-43mm 45mm being the absolute max. Price is an issue im only looking at spending a few hundred so if anyone has suggestions please let me know or if u currently own one with a great experience with it.

    My current collection consists of an invictus, 1 tonino lamborghini, 1 fossil, 2 citizens both eco drives, and 3 battery operated bulovas.

    Skeleton with blue hands is probably going to cut you down to no more then a couple choices. That is pretty specific and unique.

    Nice collection.

    Edit: A quick look turned up a lot more possibilities then I would have thought, but they almost all have leather/other material bands.

    I have searched and found several but i dont know much about the brands and whats worth spending the money on. I know nothing about the automatic watch market. I saw some that looked really nice on ebay but were like 19-25 dollars with free shipping chinese made. I dont know if those would even be worth spending money on. I was thinking if im gonna get a decent automatic i need a, android, stuhrling, akribos or others. It doesnt have to be eactly as i want but close to it. Mainly im looking for metal band type, and skeleton face where i can see moving parts working.

    Here is are some really cool ones i wish i could afford LMAO!!!

    We were talking about the Opus watch in chat, comes in a humidor with a limited opus release... There was talk of it being quite a ways into the 5 figure range for it.

    I appreciate the offer but I will pass I'm in the field so much now that I only wear my Suunto X-Lander. I moved from Vegas not too long ago, it's a shame I didn't network on Puff before I left!

    Thats one nice looking collection Joe. lots of great watches. I did notice that there was one missing, its a must for any watch collection. it has a metal band, just like you want, however it doesn't have the blue hands or numbers. I suggest this beauty:



    Casio Calculator Watch.....Classy!

    JoeT I saw your eBay link there.
    If you aren't too proud for the HongKong stuff, I actually have this guy saved in my eBay favorites. Soe cool stuff over there you don't find in USA.
    Check his store. I didn't buy from him though. Yet.
