This is the one I have, looks like it's gotten about $150 cheaper over the last couple years.
On a side note Member Zero (Paul) has connections for getting seiko watches dirt cheap. If any ones interested?

I agree. This is my Seiko, about $450 retail, I stole it on Amazon for $290. It's titanium and the alarm function is great.

Don't buy into the "2000 dollar for 100 dollar" offers... but there are some good deals every now and then. Look out for a Tag Heuer or something within those lines...

For the seiko people, here is one on special today ChronoShark | The Watch Deal a Day Site
Wow, that's a great looking watch. Only $100!

My coworker (with whom I started my conversation about watches) told me he had THE watch to have....and it was the same one you just linked. Hahaha!

Watches, like many things, are a very particular to the taste, so really our best bet is to give you our opinions on a good brand, and then you pick the particular model that meets your taste. Sounds like seiko is a pretty accepted brand.

This is another one of those cases where it looks a lot better in person than the pics. Most pics make it look black, but it is titanium and is actually that titanium grey color. The dial is very intricate as well. But styling is very subjective. I get a lot of compliments on it in person, but it is a little different in the styling.

I like the look of yours a lot, classic lines and tastefully done. I wanted a chrono, so I opted for mine.

LOL, I ALMOST bought this one, it was between mine and this, and when I found mine on sale so low, I jumped. This watch has the same movement as mine, including the alarm feature.

This ones retails like for $700, but can probably be found a lot cheaper. What model did you end up with?
