They are made by Fossil. Take that for what it's worth.
For almost $200, you can get a Victorinox Swiss Army watch , a Seiko, or a nice Swatch as seen in this link:
All good points and i am over the Armani idea hehe...those Swatches look nice, i am also checking out the Citizen 2010 lineup...just walked over to a local shop and tried about 5-6 models....quite impressed actually.For almost $200, you can get a Victorinox Swiss Army watch , a Seiko, or a nice Swatch as seen in this link:
I picked up a similar model to this on ebay for super cheap. But I got it in very beat up condition. I sent into Metro Service Center (Fossil's repair facility for all their brands), they replaced the damaged crown, crystal and put on the original band (and sent me back the other band that was on the watch) all for about $45. I can't attest to the quality of the movement, but I can attest to the quality of their service.I've owned a number of them. Among the best chinese made watches I've found. I don't know much about the movements, but the case and bracelets are very nicely made. I've bought all of mine at Fossil Outlet stores at about 1/2 price ($100-$150), making them even better.
I have no doubt that a seiko, citizen, or victorianox in the same price range has a better movement, although there are only a handful of mechanical from those brands in this price range. Most models in those brands are boring to me.
The cases are nicely finished, with extra details, very solid. Exhibition backs and finished movements are normal on the mechanical models. Bracelets are very smooth, on par with all but the very best.
I've owned 4 mechanical ones on stainless steel and a quartz on leather. I sold a few but this one is a favorite:
