Raymond Weil

this is the one that i am looking at.
http://www.amazon.com/Raymond-Weil-Tradi...ds=raymond+weil

I have personally never heard of this brand, but after doing a bit of online research they seem to be a decent brand. However, a couple of people have had issues with a different model. Granted, there will always be a minority of problems with any product.

I am looking at this specific watch because it has a sapphire crystal, leather band, and stainless steel case.

Looks good, Alex. Just curious about why you list the leather band as a key feature. As soon as I got my watch(an Armani)which came with a black leather strap, I immediately had a black Speidel expansion band put on. More convenient to put on or take off, more comfortable(when properly adjusted for size), and I think better looking.

RW is an excellent and fairly well known brand. I have had one for years with no problems. I have several watches but prefer wearing the RW because I like a leather strap.

I buy many watches from amazon, directly from them or supplied through them. I choose watches, then 70% off. I have never had an issue with the purchase experience, but I have never owned a Raymond Weil.

Be careful if you do the percentage off search. There are a lot of junk watches that were marked up so high, that after the big discount it still doesn't represent a good value.

This might be my next one.

ANd I really want this one, but it is too much for me.

i had a Bulova Accutron in the mid 70s, and someone stole it.
I liked it a lot, and it kept time within 1 sec/month (after adjustment by a repairman).

Alex,

I don't know anything about that particular watch maker, but while you're looking around on Amazon key in Men's Atomic watches. I purchased one of these back in February from Casio and I love it's features. Mainly it will up date time, day, date, and month automatically six times a day. There is a radio frequency that goes out from Colorado Springs hourly, from midnight though 5 AM. There are 6-8 place like this all around the globe that pick up the correct time off of the atomic clock located in Greenwich England. I never have to adjust my watch, this type of watch is all I'll ever own.

RW has a good rep.

I've also gone a bit off the deep end with boutique watches, specifically automatics. I like the idea of not dealing w/ a battery, though you do have to worry about wearing the watch to keep it wound, unless you have an automatic winder.

I have a C5 Christopher Ward with brown leather strap w/ butterfly clasp. Nice watches, well priced.

An older LUM-TEC because I liked the black face w/ day glow orange. I have 38mm case cuz of my girly wrist size. It was a watch (no longer carried) that used old Russian movements that were refurbed and used for 'new' watches.

And my current fav that I use with a NATO strap.

John,

My other 2 watches have a metal bracelets one has a stainless steel bracelet while the the other is made of Titanium, i would like one with a leather bracelet as well...

Gary,

I am looking for a non-digital watch. Doing a quick search as you suggested all of the atomic ones that i saw were digital.

The below watch looks nice, it has a 25 jewel automatic movement, i would rather have an automatic movement than a quartz movement. For the price it seems like a good value.

I found this to be a decent watch forum. I bought my CW watch used from here for around $200 shipped.

http://forums.watchuseek.com/forum.php

If you get onto the CW mailing list, they will send you codes and notices of secret sales. There is one going on now for the existing C5 since the redesign is about to be released.

For a boutique brand, in the year I've been watching it, it's held it's value well.

Also, don't get too caught up on the band style. You can always change the band to leather, cloth (NATO), rubber, steel, etc. I do that on my Binnacle and it allows the same watch to have a different look just for the cost of a bracelet/watch band.

Alex, at Amazon I only found 6 or 7 analog watches with that particular feature, I would had thought there would had been more.
