    Well, I gave into temptation again lol! Helson GMT 38mm didn't have time to set time or mess with it at all. Just got it in the mail and had to leave out again to travel for work. Just threw it on and snapped a pic. Have a great day all!!.

    Can a fellow ask recommendations for a watch here, or is that too far off topic? I enjoy my Casio Rangeman 9400J for work and Seiko SKX013 for dress up, but am looking for a third watch.

    Well, you have a watch for work and one for a formal night out. Seems my friend you need one for leisure and fun. There's lots of great folks on here with a lot of different tastes that might chime in on this. But until they do enjoy looking at all the beauties here. If you see something you like don't be afraid to ask about it.

    Basically I’m looking for something that looks a little more “vintage” for my work watch. I use the stop watch all the time on my Gshock, so I’m looking for a durable chronograph watch. It could be quartz, but analog and has to be able to measure 12 hours on the chronograph.

    I sort of like the looks of the SSC669 around that price point.

    No multi-hour totalizer, though, I guess ?

    I have an "Arnie" reissue, but that's overbudget. I think I have a photo of the latter, and will post it in a moment ....

    Have a look at Zeppelin watches. Here are my two Zeppelin chronos. The whole line has that vintage feel. Really nice, well built watches. Many are quartz and some mechanicals. They will fit into your budget. Good value for the money, IMO.

    Wow, I just love Seiko watches and that Arnie might be speaking to me! Is the chronograph/stopwatch function the first function with those buttons on the left?

    I'm trying to remember (since I don't use a chrono complication all that often) but I think you can set any mode for the "top" (active) display.

    For me, I usually leave that set to either 24hr or UTC, instead of the chrono.

    It is a nice fun watch, one that I wanted for literally decades, and was ridiculously hard-to-find and pricey until this reissue returned.

    Here's another photo, this time with the stock band ....



    There are a few different colorways available on this reissue, by the way.

    EDIT - Looks like black / khaki / OD / "pepsi" are the currently available variants. I think there was a "gold-accented" limited edition available only through Seiko direct upon launch, but I don't see that one any longer.

    Cheers !

    Seiko titanium chronograph, SNA139 (not this one). Very utilitarian, and never pampered.
