Both look fantastic and both are amazing watches so you can't go wrong. I fell in love with the blue steeled one te moment I saw it so it was a no brainer for me. It's the perfect watch for me, classy as hell and understated.

Hey guys,

What is a good starter time piece? I always end up getting a Fossil, but I'd like something more legit.

If you don't want to drop more than $200, I would recommend a Kenneth Cole. If you want to spend less than $1000, Movado.

Save up and go for atlease an Omega...you wont regret it. You dont want to be upgrading as you'll always want better. The omega would last you for awhile.

The Sekio is the best bang for the buck watch I have owned - currently have it on a bond nato as well as one of my old panerai ammo strap

Its a great watch, you can dress it up or down with straps. You can get a good used ones in the mid 3's to low 4's now.

NATO straps look good on all kinds of watches. I've never seen one on an IWC like that before.

^ Yeah, my pilot's chrono originally came with a black croc strap, so I changed it out for a nato strap for a more casual look. I actually preferred the nato over the croc.

Thanks david05111. Love your Port Chrono as well, those blue numerals and hands are just

I sold my Panerai for the IWC, but only kept the IWC for a month. I'm now looking to get a Portuguese Auto 7 day, but don't have the $$$ for it

So sick. Thanks man; I love mine. I wanted the 7 day, but settled for the chrono. It was a several thousand dollar difference that I couldn't justify at this point in my life. I still love it though; wouldn't trade my IWC for any watch in the world, except maybe another IWC haha
