Hi

That Tissot is very elegant indeed! Nice choice!
Am also looking for a nice dress watch but am not sure which one to go for - not in a great hurry so Im sure something will come down the pike!

I picked it up last year during my class 12 board exams from shoppers stop. it was 7999, but there was a 10% discount. so effectively 7200 it was. It looks much better than it does in pictures. Its a bit heavy though!

I am planning to add an automatic to my collection. Looking to purchase one with 4 inner dials for day, date, month and seconds or AM/PM indicator. Something similar to this one but in full stainless steel. http://titanworld.com/in/images/data...g/9362WL03.jpg

Any suggestions? Looks wise, I would prefer something like this watch >> http://s.dkrt.in/media/catalog/produ...324D-7AV_l.jpg

Budget <15K

Hi C300, thanks, the Laco Pilot has a 42mm case diameter. I've recently changed the strap to a Nato-style one, so I'll upload wrist shots when I take pictures next.

I'm going digital way, may be this is the first fully loaded digital watch that is going to take place on my closet.

I just completed placing order for Casio Pathfinder Protrek Solar Atomic Watch PRW2500-1.

I was eyeing on PRG250-1 but realized the PRW2500-1 has the atomic radio enabled. Hopefully by next 3days will pass like breeze so I could feel the big casio on my wrist.

PRG 250 was the model I wanted in the first place, but I was told it is not available in India yet. And here it was... after some squirming about the band, I bought it. Cost me 16k, the MRP is 16995.

Just shot this pic... my first 200m water resistance watch with altitude meter, temp gauge, barometer, compass, tide graph, moon phases, etc, etc.

Attachment 897016

Eventually I want to change to a black leather strap. Any idea where to get a Casio compatible strap?

Samurai,
I just realized you have the PRG250 and sure you would have got some feedback after wearing it for some time now, please enlighten if PRW2500 is worth the purchase? I spend $220 approximately INR12,000

That is a nice rugged looking watch. Good for the tough Indian weather.
