The 35mm is the one to get IMO. Very nice 馃憤

CliveBarker1967 commented on My next watch? Feedback appreciated

If it was me I would go for the Hamilton. Not for any other reason than I want a Khaki in my collection more than I want a Bulova. I assume both isn't possible 馃榿

CliveBarker1967 commented on Need a recomandation

Yes there are certainly alternatives if "best" for you doesn't mean mechanical. But the made in China question is a huge can of worms as everyone will have a different limit to what is acceptable. A sweat shop using children is probably unacceptable to most while the Seiko factory based in China might be ok. It's hard to know how many western watch manufacturers sauce parts from china but it's probably quite a few. It's an interesting topic IMO but one that's too difficult to discuss on a forum. 馃し

Easily find a mechanical chronograph for under $170 that isn't Chinese? Define adequate?

CliveBarker1967 commented on Need a recomandation

That's a can of worms. Living in the west without any Chinese made products is not easy. Good luck with that.

I believe it's a quartz movement and sells for around 拢100. Probably worth a punt at that price. 馃憤
