Just picked up this Harding Jetstream HJ0104 at Amazon for $109.....Most places sell it for about double that. The black version of this one is on Amazon for $109 right now as I write this. It's a little big at 46.5 mm, but as soon as I strapped it on the 'biggness' went away. I think the complicated dial helps with this perception. This watch has a quality strap that has that new leather 'crunch' when it moves, but the feel of a nice broken in strap. For the price, a nicely engraved caseback and a signed crown and buckle, set the watch off nicely. Was not expecting too much for $100 watch (retail is $700 so they must use Invicta's sales model!) but am pleasantly surprised at how nice this is.

Some Hype from Harding:

HARDING is based in Uri, Switzerland, the home of the skilled and fearless Middle Age marksman William Tell. His spirit lives on in the shield, whose bullhorns symbolize the bold, impassioned lifestyle that inspires every HARDING timepiece.
Starting with the highest quality Swiss standards, HARDING engineers reimagined the entire watch design and development process. Pairing timeless techniques with modern craftsmanship, the HARDING team creates watches that heighten every experience and enhance every escapade. Whether it's time to be a gentleman or time to seek adventure, it's always the right time to thrill with a HARDING watch on your wrist.

CRAFTSMANSHIP
Whether on the water, in the air or around the track, HARDING is the official timepiece of thrill-seekers worldwide. To keep up with intense lifestyles, every HARDING is constructed from the most reliable, high-quality materials and held to rigorous testing standards. We don't cut corners - we take them at top speed.

You put life to the test, and we do the same to every timepiece that bears our name. These aren't just words - they're a promise. HARDING watches are built according to precise engineering criteria that demand the highest-quality materials and attention to detail.

Our timepieces comply with European ISO and Swiss Watch Industry standards (NIHS), and every HARDING watch undergoes 100 hours of mechanical testing before final approval. Only then is it deemed a perfect union of technical achievement and high style worthy of our name.

Our core philosophy is one of quality and value. We combine time-tested watch-building techniques with modern design and a passion for the craft to deliver beautiful timepieces for adventurers on a budget. We invite every HARDING man to put his watch to the test.

Yeah wow Gary !!! Surprised You can really see how nice these are ! bounce I can't believe have never heard of the brand before until now. They make all kinds of cool watches it looks like from the website. Yowzers !  cheers

There's no doubt though that you got one, if not the best model honestly. You would swear at first glance that the watch was vintage. That dial alone has that unforgettable classic feel with the hands especially, but also the markers, and contrast of the black on the white. Even the way it fits in with the case is flawless !

Can see how the dial absorbs the size of the case to like you said, and just how nice the build is. Doesn't seem to matter what part of the watch you go to either. You're going to be impressed ! What's neat is how you get that classic style, that actually looks vintage with everything from the hands, to the crowns, and pushers, but then just the right amount of modern day cool like with the size, and beautiful case-back. ..Yup, you should be happy with the Gary. Great great find ! Thanks so much for the intro to them, and all of the info too.  Harding Jetstream  803574

..and a HUGE congratulations on the watch !!! Really is neat ! ..Hope you wear it often, and ENJOY sir !
