I posted about these watches in the G-Shock forum because someone was looking for a large analog watch and I recommended these, but I figured I should share the info here in the appropriate forum...
Recently, I was looking for a watch with that Bell & Ross Aviation style, but didn't want to pay the Bell & Ross prices. I stumbled upon the brand Republic from Plain Paper Box thru Amazon.com. (You can read my reviews on Amazon under the name Michael L.)
I had never heard of the Republic brand before, but decided to take a chance based on the reviews I read. The price was fantastic and I couldn't decide which colour I preferred, so I bought both of the ones pictured below. I might even buy the one with the brown leather strap soon too.
I've been more than pleased with these watches and wear them almost every day. So, for anyone looking for that Bell & Ross style, without the Bell & Ross price, I highly recommend these.
