Watch Station has the Emporio Armani ARS3000 for $279. There's an additional coupon code, ICECREAM which takes 20% off with free shipping. Total should be around $224! You can bring the total down further with cashback site (PM for details).
This is a beautiful automatic watch w/ Sapphire crystal, grey sunburst dial and brown leather with STP1-11 decorated automatic movement ( Fossil's answer to the ETA 2824). Cheers

That really is an awesome price for a Swiss auto. Here is the link:

STP reminds me of motor oil. Remember those [URL=atchorn.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/stp.jpg"]bumper stickers[/URL] tha] were everywhere?

Oops forgot to include link! Thanks for posting it for me...it really is a REALLY good deal, surprised it hasn't gotten more attention. Maybe Emporio Armani detracts from the actually very good movement inside lol.

I've had an emporio armani watch and although it was extremely good looking, the build quality was terrible...lasted under a year of minimal wear.

That said, companies like this (Tommy Bahama, Kenneth Cole, Etc.) go through manufacturers like candy, so my experience may likely not be all-encompassing.

Correct but it's their luxury top of the line movement, essentially an ETA 2824 clone. Their company in Switzerland is producing the STP1-11 calibre for higher end models in their lines, such as this Armani. I have held it and played with it at a Costco (was selling for $450) and it felt VERY well made and of high quality. There are many watch enthusiasts that have said it's a well made watch with a very good movement that just happens to have the Emporio Armani logo on it lol.

I think you are right about the logo. I have seen Calvin Klein automatics ignored at this price even though they were essentially Hamilton automatics with a CK logo. Brand is important. Watch geeks know this is a good deal.

Alright, I know I shouldn't, I was saying in another thread that I am not buying another sub $500 watch... but I bought this, the movement is special... While I will need to pay tax in this deal... the 5% CB site and 2% credit card cash back kind of wash the tax off... And again, its a very good deal for swiss automatic...

Right now if you use code LONGWEEKEND you can get an extra 25% off.
So after the discount the watch is $210.

This is a good deal. I'm a big fan of Armani watches, and haven't owned an automatic before. Thanks for posting, OP!
