    Railmaster is one of few normal ones, it's 12.6mm I believe. But those Planet Oceans and new Speedmaster coaxials are ridiculous. Planet Ocean I had was 16mm and that was too much but these new ones are going up to 18mm (chronographs).

    Which Railmaster are you planning to get normal one or trilogy edition?

    I'm split between the trilogy and the Milgauss.
    I've avoided Rolexs because i perceive a stigma with them but like the story behind watches designed for engineers etc.

    I always liked the idea of getting the Milgauss but every time I try one on I like something else better in the store. First I was into the white one especially when they were low 2 years ago, then I was looking into the black one, but in person there's something off about them for me. Don't know what it is, maybe dimensions just don't work for me :yeshrug:

    Forget about the stigma though, unless it's warranted (like Hublot). I find most of the hate for Rolex comes from people who want to go against the grain. They want to be anti watch snobs, so in turn they become snobs themselves :francis:

    I've been looking on eBay for wrist watches. Something in the $150 to $250 range. I'm not going to wear something so expensive that I'm worried about scratching it.
    Yeah, Rolex and other high wrist watches do keep time well and look luxurious, but I'm not going to get too materialistic. But, if you got the money and have a nice watch, more power to you.

    More expensive watches (up to a certain point) use higher grades of steel, in addition to sapphire crystal for the glass. These materials are far more durable than those in a cheap watch. I have watches that cost several thousand that I daily wear. Nary a scratch on them. You'll thank yourself for saving and setting that budget somewhere around the $500 range. Look at Tissot and Hamilton.

    Hmm, I see.
    I'll look around. I like diver type watches (not super thick body with rubber strap for actual diving, just a spinning bezel).

    All the seiko watches in that price range have Hardlex crystal, not sapphire.
    Did some research on it. Seiko uses Hardlex on their diver watches because it doesn't burst apart on hard impact, like sapphire would. Hardlex will crack but not break apart. The trade off is that Hardlex is easier to scratch than sapphire.
