The Syncro

Straton makes fun, good looking watches that are aggressively priced, and offer a HUGE bang for the buck. And I say that as a satisfied and loyal customer. More and more, I have become a huge fan of Seiko's Meca Quartz movements.  All the "warm fuzzies" of a mechanical movement with the accuracy and low-fuss of quartz. What has taken the watch world so long to embrace this is beyond me.

At any rate, at $499 this is a super watch at a fantastic price. And I'll save "value proposition" for the douchier outlets out there, regardless of price, this watch is dope!
