Hey guys i own a Seiko Dive watch but looking to buy another one. I like the design of the Ocean 7 LM6 & similar larger divers albeit but i dont want to spend that amount of cash at the moment. So my question is whats a good bang for you buck watch that you could reccomend. Perhaps under $500 Aussie Dollars.

Irreantum Magellan. $545 USD.



Comes in carbon fiber, orange, blue and black dials.

45mm and is one of the most comfortable and good looking watches I own.

Ah! No question: Armida A1 ETA. I got mine earlier this week and love it! Do a search here, you'll see lots of happy customers.
+1!!! had one, but sold it to get a zinex heliox...it's an awesome watch and at your price range used for the eta version or new for the miyota version (A1-1000m-MIYOTA). here's my former armida:

How is it that the entire case & bracelet are those of a Doxa 600T???

Kind of an old thread, Thomas. :)

This is/was(?) a micro brand company offering an homage to the cushion case watches of yore, i.e. Doxa.

I have no clue if the company still exists but they sold out of the Magellan's a while ago so there must have been some demand for it.

Though yes, most definitely, the case and bracelet were MORE than Doxa-"like"!

OP also posted four years ago. Exchange rates change.

E: Guess I could make my post more productive than that. I really wanted to like the magellan when it was in development, but nothing about it made sense. The case & bezel are a given, but the dial and hand proportions and style were all out of whack from the get go.

Seems like in the recent trend of knock offs doxa would be a prime target, maybe they have better lawyers. Haven't seen anyone attempt it since.
