    Had a main forum thread, figured I would get some opinions from all of you as well.

    1) Adee Kaye Skeleton

    2) Alessi Out_time

    Both are sub $200, which is what I am really looking to spend under. I like the first one a lot just because I can see the inner workings. I like the second as well because of its simplicity. Thoughts?

    Would you wear one without the roman numerals printed on it?

    Well, that's what he pointed out. That's why I asked

    Do you feel its too busy? I like to see the inner workings like that, I think its really cool.

    Any suggestions on something you would consider for sub $200? I large large faced watches if that helps.

    Yes on 2, no on 1.
    I think the skeleton style, while interesting, is just too busy. Also, I'm biased since I'm getting #2, but still...

    b/w the two you posted i voted for the 2nd one. i'm getting the itch to buy a watch, but it doesn't seem like there's anything i really like in the sub $200 category.
