[Casio, Seiko, Vostok] When You Can't Decide What to Wear
**Seiko SKX009**: I don't know what I can say about this that hasn't already been said a million times over, but it rocks. Surprisingly the new 5KX are gaining popularity despite everyone saying how they would never get one because the original SKX is sooooooooOooOO much better.
