    So it's supposed to be a picture of every watch work by James bond

    Just got my grail. It is the "Cosmos" watch I have been wanting in a new larger size. The previous models were all in a 38mm case while this new model is in a 42mm case. It is still powered by the same 3133 movement as the others as well as 2 of my other acquisitions. While there are and have been several variations on the theme, I have always liked the black face with all cyrillic. It is now my third 3133 movement watch. In the last pic left to right are my Buran "PLARB",Cosmos and Strela "Agent".

    Added a stainless sharkstooth mesh bracelet. I think it plays well with the watch. I found after putting the same style but black pvd on my aviator that these bracelets are very comfy and allow good air circulation, so as not to sweat in warm weather.

    I need a new timepiece for a formal event in a couple months, but I was hoping to find something that I could wear daily. Something tasteful, simple but with just a hint of classy.

    I've been eying this up. Anyone with better knowledge have anything for me? I'm not very versed on timepieces. I know some movement basics, and somehow having a automatic movement built in Japan seems like it might be of reasonable quality especially when you consider the price here, but I know so little about this. I know I don't care for busy watches with extra dials and such, I want something ultra simple, it's a basic timepiece, but more than anything it's a piece of wrist jewelry to replace my Garmin Vivofit when I don't want to look like an IT Hobo.

    Class, style, not cashing in the farm. My first choice would be something from here.
    EDIT:
    The important part. They are an excellent quality.

    Thanks @Mt_Goat - I love the look of a couple of the Bambino models. You may have saved me near $200.

    @Cliff_Forster, I have always found these interesting. They would make a great dress watch and have a very good proprietary movement for a real low price.

    OK @Cliff_Forster, I have now been pushed over the edge and ordered the metallic version of the Luch one handed watch. They come in a white, black or metallic face. I love the minimalism, clean lines and slender thickness. Most good one handed watches start at $1,000 and many are twice that. So for $127USD including Express shipping ($18 less for standard) I was able to purchase a high quality specialty watch with a proprietary movement, 2 leather straps and from a maker with a long history.

    BTW, note that this color face may be a preorder with a delay of a couple of weeks. And I have dealt with Julian many times as has quite a few others from various watch forums. He has a sterling reputation.

    @Mt_Goat Thank you for your recommendations. I just purchased two Orient Automatics, a Sentinel for casual and a nice Bambino as a dress watch. I'll post them when they come in.

    No problem, I enjoy the hunt as well as helping out. I even purchased another watch in the process! :eek3:
