    Need inputs from forum members

    Hi all,

    I am planning to buy an orange dial diver in near future and a black dial perpetual watch sometime later (from amazon usa)

    For the orange dial I have shortlisted following two :
    1) Seiko Orange Monster
    2) Victorinox Swiss Army Men's 241174 Dive Master 500
    No questions about the 1st one ( much popular in the forum).
    But have no information regarding its reliability of the 2nd. Any inputs on that especially since there might not be service centre from swiss army in India.

    For black dial perpetual I have shortlisted these two :
    1) TX Unisex T3C303 400 Series Perpetual Weekly Calendar Watch
    2) Seiko Men's SNQ117 Premier

    Regarding 1st again I have questions about its reliability, any inputs ?
    About the 2nd, there is some confusion whether its a black dial at all. Amazon states it to have black dial with brown rim but on many other sites it appears to have brown dial.
    Anybody owns that to confirm its dial color ?

    Thanks,
    Samay

    You truly cannot go wrong with the Orange Monster. Well made and a lot of watch for the price. I love wearing mine...it's a fun watch.

    I don't think you would have a problem with reliability, well made bracelet and case, Swiss ETA quartz it's a nice watch. Check out amazon, I recently saw an orange dial quartz for 195, quite a lot of watch for the $. In my opinion it blows the Orange Monster away, case, bracelet, sapphire crystal everything but an auto movement but who cares for that price. I like the om also, I have one, but if somebody wanted to trade me right now for the DM 500 quArtz I would do it in a second.
    Calm down.....It's just a watch....

    I finally ordered Divemaster 500 orange dial from amazon today, which I got at a nice reduced price of $183. Price of TX T3C303 was also quite less at that time ($212) but didn't want to spend so much at one go so had to let that go :( Both are back to to their day earlier prices now .

    Thanks everybody for your inputs.

    Orange Dials - The Seiko Orange Monster is THEEE classic to have
    Black / Perpetual - The Seiko Premier is awesome

    So i guess its Seiko 2 - 0.

    The TX T3C303 price on Amazon is fluctuating quite wildly ($250 to $390). Very strange.
    And many people have mentioned that TX stock was sold at $150 at timex stores. Quite high pricing on amazon
