I have a black version with a resin band, but the band has about had it. I always liked the design, and new ones on flea bay typically come close to 300 bucks when they show up. So either the market appeal has dried up, or I got lucky.

My other new watch, covered in my introduction thread is an Orient Polaris, my first mechanical watch.

Anyway, I really like the Timex piece, but if I can flip it to help finance another Orient (I already have my sights set on the stargazer, same movement but luminous), I may try it on flea bay in a month or two. The problem with the watch is the band seems to be irreplaceable, in that it has a weird cut out in between the lugs, that make an standard band look weird. The resin band is half torn, and I have yet to have my google fu work in finding it's direct replacement. I bought the first one years ago, and it has (other than the ridiculous resin band) been a great watch. Got it new on ebay for $20!
