They lean more in the direction of sport watches, and even their dressy styles are on the larger diameter side.
The materials are easily a notch up from most Timex models, with consistent use of mineral crystal, stainless steel and medium grade leather.
Their least expensive timepieces are slightly more expensive than their base Seiko brethren, but their priciest, the Pro Saturation Diver doesn't approach Seiko's Grand Seiko line, costing thousands.

What the next watch will be remains a mystery, but I have my eye on an IWC Pilot Chronograph. That may not be your path along the progression of timepieces in your life, but it’s almost inevitable that if you’re serious about wristwatches, you’ll find yourself upgrading every so often because your watch sensibilities change and grow as you get older and as you get wiser about what watch brands have to offer.
