    jewelled barrel bridge

    So what we have here is an improved classic with the performance we are used to, and added longevity. What’s not to like?"
    Ok you win, in for one especially after using 9.5% cash back site ( to offset taxes at least).

    I initially didn't think I was going to keep it, but it has grown on me.

    Thank you to the person who posted.
    Yeah I regret not getting one myself, I posted the black dial, although Worththewrist posted the white dial one earlier.

    Do they normally charge tax up front then adjust on these? It looks like they are in TX and should be no tax shipping to FL.

    Either way great deal thanks!

    This one got some attention in this thread a few months ago at $350.

    Swiss made auto with genuine alligator strap. Fossil STP 1-11 clone of ETA 2824-2.

    I didn't like the fit on my wrist at $350, but may give it another try $210.

    I believe it's a chain with physical locations all over, so likely required to collect sales tax in every state.

    Here's another interesting read http://www.ablogtowatch.com/visit-st...up-answer-eta/

    Apparently Zodiac and Emporio Armani Swiss are assembled at Fossil Swiss HQ

    Speaking of Armani's, this one is also on sale at watchstation and the FIREWORKS code brings this down to $155 with free shipping and you can use befrugal to get %5 back off that.
    Sharp watch indeed.

    Minimalist and Bauhaus aren't really my thing. But to me, that's just a beautiful dial. And I've always loved the Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope Meister's recessed subdials on that beautiful white face. This is kind of a poor man's version of it.

    Very much proof that those stock, fake-ish photos don't always tell the story on a watch. If I went by the stock photos at the sites selling this watch, I'd have had no interest at all.

    Jacob Time seems to have the lowest price on this one, $182.23. BeFrugal's rebate takes it to $166.76.

    Love the recessed subdials, but that date window is so small I thought it was a "reset" hole.
