- Which smart(ish) watch….
- ron jeremyMember
…for about £50-£70, ive a g shock (big fan) which I use most of the time but I want something a little smarter (metal with metal strap) for wearing out smart and for work, but it also must be able to stand up to the fact that I am a clumsy bugger, now I know there are several watch afficiendos on here, so I’m open to any and all advice
Thanks in advancePosted 5 years agouwe-rMember
I would suggest Fossil although you will need to be scouring in the bay as they go for £75 / £250 rrp unless you stretch the budget. Respectable brand and lovely classic style to them.
For all of them,
This one is £85.

+1 for a Seiko 5 ,automatic movement which is pretty much bulletproof.
I wear mine for work all day including drilling with a SDS drill and still keeps great time.
Plenty of aftermarket parts for them if you ever feel like tinkering.
Father In Law has a Fossil watch looks ok ,but just has a cheap generic quartz movement which isnt that great.Posted 5 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
Mine (above) is an SNK809.
Loads of places sell them, mine came off Amazon, watch kingdom.
They come with a webbing strap as standard.
They wind them selves up as you move, they are accurate enough I guess. The second hand sweeps. The back is glass so you can see the bits moving. Quite cool for the money.Posted 5 years agoBoba FattMember
My wife used them last year for this for me, grey import so you get their warranty rather than Seiko’s, so owt goes wrong you either send it back to Creation or pay out of your own pocket. But if you’re paying around £70 then who cares really? Anyhoo, she got me this:
£140, compared to a general rrp of £280…..the watch guys on Pistonheads swear by CreationPosted 5 years agoCountZeroMember
A yokobies.com Seiko 5 Mod. I’ve got one just like it:
Nice watch, pretty accurate, but dead easy to adjust anyway, being a mechanical.
My current watch, and one that’s as close as it gets to being my perfect watch, a Seiko ‘Spork’.Posted 5 years ago
Mine still has the stainless bracelet, but I’m looking for a stitched leather strap like the one in the photo.
Beautiful watch, I’m thrilled to bits with it.
