Or just a "rebranded Swatch" as some here claim, let's not forget.

$357 now. "Limited quantities" (one) sale? Bait and switch?

They do frequently run one day specials. I have taken advantage of them occasionally. Most recently got a very decent Edox for <$500.

True but still wasn't a bad price.

Just went on Ashford site and they have this 38mm Quartz Jazzmaster for $196.

I have probably bought a dozen Hamilton's from them over the last few years, either for myself or to give as gifts.

They are great to deal with. Returning watches has never been a problem.

Oh, hell, yeah - Ashford's the bomb. They're local to me, too, and I've never had quicker delivery.

That sale watch above is sharp. I'd do it.
