Has anyone ever heard of 111 Watches? Or One Eleven?

The watches are solar powered, and very affordable it looks
like. Plus you have various styles from field watches, and
sport models, to adventure, and dress. With just some of
the details including stainless, or special plastic cases, as
well as hardened mineral crystals, 50-100m WR, neat dials,
and various strap options.

Just a few of the different models, and variations everyone...





































One Eleven with a lot more...

There just doesn’t seem to be a saturation point with all these smaller brands does there? I like The pilot style they have going on there, and the field watch is always winner.

I like the white dial with the black and red accents and sandblasted case (3rd one down). But I don't know why they wouldn't have outlined the hands in black like the Arabic numerals for better contrast. As is, it would be tough to tell time at a glance. $85 is certainly doable. I wonder who makes the movements ???:unsure: I'll take Japan over China anytime.:)
Oh, that's not sand blasted, it's pot metal. Very interesting.:confused:

It is something trying to keep up all of these companies
Jeff, and seeing what they have to offer. (y) Plus not only
do we have all the new brands popping up, but also all
of the brands, and companies that are, or even were here
as well ! :D

And Geno, yes, those aren’t the easiest to read that is
for sure, but it seems like they want them like that. Or
did it on purpose sir. I think they are going for a modern
meets vintage vibe, but are partly in sleek mode. 😄

Yeah was wondering what the movements might be
because the watches are incredibly affordable sir. 😮

P.S. thanks a lot for the info on the case material.
I don’t even know what that is ! 😊

Thank you both a bunch for just looking, and of course
for your thoughts here on these !!!

Maybe it's been done before but I've never seen an old school fixed-lug style that was faked. Like this one:

😊 Guess that is one of the ways they keep the prices down
maybe Eric. But it is such a great catch, and point. Because
doesn’t that actually take more time, and energy to imitate?
..You would think so right?!

What a great eye sir ! (y)(y) Didn’t even pick that up. Have
to thank you once again !!!

At these prices, I'm not judging. ;) I kinda like the fourth one from the top. But just kinda.

😄 Yeah, you know what’s interesting Eric?! Is they are kind
of meshing different elements from multiple styles of watches
together I think. Then at the same time are balancing a classic,
or vintage vibe with a more modern one. 🙂It’s a cool idea,
and also not cookie cutter either.

But because there are these multiple ideas, along with design
elements all together. One might wonder what kind of watch am
I looking at? ..A dress watch? A sport, military, dive, or aviation
watch?

I think that is what it is possibly. It’s just cool to see imho, and
the prices don’t hurt either ! 😁 ..Just is great talking about it
with you, and so much fun. Thanks a ton for your honesty too
by the way !!!
