    I'm planning on getting a seiko 5 but I'll wanna change out the strap for a nice leather one. What size is it? Standard 22mm??

    Also, can anyone recommend me a nice watch for "dressy" occasions? Something around 100 bucks.

    Thanks guys and gals!

    Great choice, but which model? There is a whole lotta Seiko 5 models! The SNK80x series (awesome, inexpensive field watch) takes an 18 mm strap.

    I tried to get in on the $40 shipped Seiko 5 from Jomashop (before they oversold their stock :mad: ) and it had the 18mm band.

    Well, just set a price limit. If it's a field watch you are after, the SNK series is cheap, proven and reliable. It's also slightly smaller than the other models, and has a 4 o'clock crown, which makes it wear a little smaller. Here ya go. You really can't go wrong at this price.

    Yah. :( I can't find if anywhere. That's so sad. I love how thin it is. You got any recommendations on a watch similar to this?

    Thanks to Vesp I found my watch. I'll likely switch out the band as well. Here's a close up shot from last week. Research is my favorite part. Happy hunting KAMM! All u need is a purple strap :)

    Or Tissot Visodate. You're in the $500 price range now though.

    This is what I'm looking for. Darn it. :)

    I like classy watches. A good brand name. Nothing to blingy. I don't want a purple strap. I'll go with a nice brown leather. Keep the suggestions coming on the thinner watches....I think I'm on to something.

    Wow! A lot of beautiful watches there in the thin, white face category. One of each, KAMM? ;)

    I saw the price of one and turned around! But I can do more research. If I could afford something by them I would jump on it. :D that one is BEAUTIFUL.
