Default Which watch do you own

Yes working. But the inner works are a bit wonky, meaning they rattle around in the case a bit. But at 500 bucks I don't care. Since I posted here and also on FAcebook I know of at least a dozen folks who have ordered it too. Better get your order in fast before they run out of stock!

Just completed a 300km ride on my bullet wearing my watch and everything is still working. Keeping my fingers crossed though!

Isn't that the made-to-order white Pilot (with blue hands)? Or are those available off the shelf at any stores?
In case available at any stores please do let me know.

It is a limited edition Pilot, the group order was arranged by a good friend of mine.

Here is the standard pilot and the limited edition side by side.

The White Pilot was ordered as a GO on two forums. WUS and Techenclave. I doubt they can be procured anymore, unless someone is selling them on the Bay.

Default Watch Suggestions under $50

Hi Guys,

I am currently in the US and my wife & kid will be visiting friends and family in India for 3 months. I am looking to buy some watches for relatives.

Can you please suggest some brands (Automatic) for around $50 - $60?

And also I am looking to buy 6 watches, will there be any problem due to customs?

Folks from US, where can I buy watches here? Amazon? Overstock? Any Stores?

Thanks for your suggestion.

Does anyone know what movement Titan uses in their automatic watches? Also, I may be asking this again so kindly excuse me but could anyone suggest good quality replacement straps(croc or leather)?

If you are ok with ordering online, check natostrapsco or Hirsch straps. Hirsch ones are quite expensive as compared to others , however their quality is top notch.
You can also message Costas Kastantona on facebook. He makes some pretty good straps too

Titan uses Miyota movements. They are a Citizen subsidiary.

You mean the Super Titus. I got that off Ebay.com, through an auction. You can search there. The seller was from Bombay, and I paid him using EFT vs. PayPal which you cannot do within the same country. Be careful when purchasing vintage watches from Ebay. You can get franken movements, cases, dials.

Orient and Seiko 5 are two good watch brands. In house movements and robust parts. Both have a unidirectional winder.
