    Forgive my correcting you - Q&Q are the low end brand of Citizen Watch co.
    Look at the frame at the top of this page: Japan CBM Corp - Company Home - Japan Manufacturer
    or here:
    QandQ

    This cost about £5.95 including postage from Hong Kong. The strap is worth more than that.

    If anyone has a Q & Q, it would be nice to see some pics.
    Can't remember when or where I got this one, but I'm sure it qualifies for this thread. It sat in a drawer for years. When I started getting interested in mechanical watches recently, I pulled it out, wound it, and it still ran okay. I rarely wear it. While I like the clean, uncluttered dial, I never particularly cared for the hands, and at 34 mm, it's a bit small for my tastes.

    I really like that. And it being a quartz, there is no reason why it shouldn't last as long as a quartz that cost a 100 times more than that. When I look at my collection, I can see that I definitely paid too much for some of my quartzes.

    I like it. As you mentioned, the dial is very stylish. It looks like a nice vintage watch. One that hasn't been through all the wars!

    The blue dial one is a cheapie from Wal-Mart. No idea what the brand is.

    The lug width is 22mm. The watch is ok for under $20. I had to tear it apart and clean under the crystal, but I have had to do that on watches that cost over $100. You could do worse things with $20.

A strap can really change a watch, not surprisinly of course, since the strap covers more than the watch itself in most cases.
    It's a MRW200 from Casio, not really a diver but 100m WR.
