the metal seiko had sapphire crystal,so does the metal eco drive....the leather seiko has hardlex.....and the casio edifice seems too flashy yet i read at a few places that its got good build...its actually the best edifice available in india...so the choice might be?

I think everyone approaches the idea of being timeless differently, but I think of it in terms of style vs. fashion. Fashion is always changing and what's hot today isn't going to be hot tomorrow. Style is lasting. Think McQueen, and Newman vs. Bieber and Beckham. As it applies to watches I look for something that I think will look good 5, 10, 20 years down the road. If I don't see that timeless style in a watch I may still buy it but I'm not going to spend big dollars on it.
