    SKX007 or Bambino Version 4 FAC08003A0

    I really like both of these watches and plan to get them both at some point but I can't decide which one to get first. I don't own any Bauhaus style watches like the Bambino and I really like the casual look of this model with the camel suede strap and the hand winding and hacking is also cool. I already own a "dive watch" if the Invicta Pro Diver 8926OB is considered one even though if I get the SKX it will never be used for diving or even swimming (I own too may G-Shocks to dive in something I consider somewhat dressy). The 7S26 in the SKX is also a little lack luster when I can get an Invicta with a much nicer movement for less than half. Heck even the the Seiko SRPB27 has the same movement as the Invictas and is still cheaper than the SKX but I guess the price of the SKX is due to its ISO certification. Any bad experiences with either watch?

    Love my SKX009, but since you have the Invicta you make a good argument for getting the Bambino first. IMHO, the SKX, compared to the Invicta, is a classic that is greater than the sum of its parts.

    With the current watches you have I’d say get the bambino.

    That being said I’ve got both (although a different version of the bambino) and if I was to chose one, and one only, it would be the Seiko

    Like the guys above, I'd go with the skx. But since you already have a diver and want a more 'bauhaus' style like you say, go with the bambino. But I'm not sure that's truly considered 'bauhaus' style, though. If you want true bauhaus I'd look into spending a little more and getting a Junghans. I got my Junghans Max Bill w/ date for $750, but you can get one without a date for cheaper if you know where to look online.

    Get the 007 first then follow it up with the Bambino. At the rate Seiko are scrapping watches the 007 will probably go by the end of next week.

    If you feel like you're missing a dressy watch, get the Bambino. The SKX is a lot of things and I love mine to death, but dressy it ain't. You can turn it into a field watch with a fixed bezel mod, but that doesn't really make it dressy either, just no longer a diver. That's what I decided to do with mine since I'm already well stocked with two other divers, and will be doing an SRPB55 Samurai mod soon for a third.
