Weekly Wrist Shot: Week 39

Last week, I posted for the very first time my daily rotation of watches. I was surprised that in so short a time it barged into my top 10 posts.

So I thought of doing it every week. Here are the wrist shots for this week.

Casual Weekend Watch Under PhP30,000

Yesterday a friend sent me a Facebook message complimenting my small watch collection and also asking what would be a good weekend casual watch under PhP30,000 (approximately USD700.00).

I'm a big fan of classic designs with large clean readable dials, so it was a no brainer for me to suggest a Stowa Pilot's Watch. Or the much cheaper Laco or Steinhart. Though Stowa gets my top vote because of it's more finished look and rich history.

The Stowa looks great worn casual either with jeans or shorts and even small enough to wear under shirt cuffs. Due to it's large face, it lends enough wrist presence. At USD640 it falls perfectly within the budget.

I'm also a big fan of the Japanese brand Seiko, and a budget of USD700 means a chest full of choices with this brand. Personally my top Seiko choices for that budget would be the 1) Seiko Sumo 2) Seiko SPORK and 3) Seiko Samurai.

All 3 watches are IMHO going to be iconic dive watches and would be the perfect companion to any weekend getaway. With any of these babies you won't have a problem checking out your wrist while swimming, beach bumming, malling or fine dining.

Among these choices, I'd go for the Sumo due to it's classic diver's design and the exclusivity of having a Japan Domestic Model.

If a gun was put to my head I'd pick the Stowa over the Sumo. I just can't resist that sterile dial and blued hands!

Wrist Time with Wrist Shots

I haven't been a good blogger the past couple of weeks after I came back from my international assignment. That doesn't mean I haven't been a good watch idiot.
