Thank you for your fast response.First off, welcome to the forum.
I'm not much of an authority on Welders, as a matter of fact, I'm in the "why would you wear such a huge watch" camp, but I don't see anything "wrong" with them, other than being a little pricey for quartz with a mineral crystal (mineral crystals have no place in any watch over $250 IMO). What, specifically, is it about them that attracts you? I ask, because that could lead to good suggestions on less expensive watches for you to look into. Maybe something from Fossil, or Diesel?
I've seen these models and I even have a Invicta watch:If it's the oil drum screwed over the crown look you're going after, you could do a search for "Russian diver's watch". There are quite a few variants by several brands... even Invicta makes a line of Russian styled divers.
