So today's wrist check is an interesting one, and I'm not sure how you guys view homages/copies, but here goes.
When I first started looking into watches, I wanted something simple cheap, that got the job done. Ebay was my go to, and tbh I wanted something that looked sporty, and blacked out. And then I found this from a Chinese brand called infantry. It's big, silent, lume on the hands, simple but different. I liked it for what it was. A casual beater watch that I thought looked great after putting it on a rubber strap.
Anyways, a few weeks later, I come across this just randomly browsing online. The $100 Citizen avion (goddamn ironic ain't it?). I will say I'm not sure how I feel about this. The citizen definitely looks higher quality, and the silver case looks great. Citizens is also solar powered vs just quartz, but the watch I bought for just $15 definitely had good build quality, and tbh idk if I like the looks enough to have purchased at Citizens going price.
