I own a lot of affordable watches from a lot of companies, but one brand I have been quite impressed with of late is Nautica. I love their designs and they make solid pieces. Also, there are some amazing deals to be had if you can find one to your liking on clearance at a Time Factory (40%-70% off MSRP). I noticed that there's not much buzz about it on the forums though. So, let's see your Nauticas!

These are basically fashion watches with Timex built movements, right? I've seen several Nauticas that I think are cool. I'll have to check them out the next time I'm at a Time Factory.

I got no beef with any watch...

I've seen a lot of Nautica watches that I liked the looks of...i love the case/lug design on the one pictured [yours?]

I hope this thread gets people to post their Nautica watches so i can see some more

Nice looking Nautica, the area around the pushers somehow reminds me of Megatron.

How I wished there's Time Factory here in Singapore where I have constantly read about great discounts that they dished off retail price. Nautica on sale locally ain't very expensive but they are definitely not cheap either.

From my experience they use better movements than Timexes. There are some Nauticas with Swiss movements as well.

I think Fossil has also produced some watches for the "Nautica" brand.

IMO Nautica has some really stylish watches. I have bought a few from my local TJ Max. But they didn't last to long. I wish they would contract out to someone like Marcello C watches and do some high quality watches with the cool designs they already use.

Falcon4311 I saw that NST-03 watch in a local store the other day and really liked it. The one I saw had red accents instead of yellow. I thought it would look great on a coyote tan zulu band. It was like $125 but could be had on ebay for like $70. Great looks though. I posted on it in the Dive section and like you found no love there.

I wish they did more automatic movements though - have seen some with Miyotas, but those were big watches, around 46mm+. I have a Chrono which is Swiss made, keeps time fine but the case itself is rather light though IMHO

I had bought the Yacht Timer like the one listed above but returned it after about 3 days. Reason being is that it looked as if the battery had been replaced and someone butchered the case screws. Otherwise, it was a very cool watch for the price. I paid about $75.00 at TJ Maxx and to be honest, I wish I could have just exchanged mine instead of returning it.

That's a nice one! How is a Yacht Timer different from a normal timer?
