Wind-up Watches

A couple of follow-ups on the wind-up watch story. Dunno if Jean is going to be interested, but I found a few places sell Seiko Kinetic (self-winding) watches for under $200 (seiko-kinetic-watches.com; princeton watches; Invicta, Poljot). Still steep, but doable. Less stylish is the GI Vietnam Era Type Wind Up Watch. Only $40! But olive-drab?

do you know of any silver seiko kinetic watches for under $200? The link to the site above does not work for me. Thank you.

Hi,
I'm looking for a lady's wind-up watch. Where can I buy one?

In a later post, I wrote that I ended up getting my wife the G.I. Joe watch (her choice, as she didn't want an expensive watch that would break anyway).

As a result, I stopped searching for other wind-up watches. I'm sorry, but you'll have to use Google like I did.

As for Kaci, sorry, I missed your comment when you originally posted it. I just used Google to find the link again: Seiko Technology Watches.
