Hi fella's,


Starting a new job soon and I need a watch. Problem is I have a very tight budget, around 100 euro (absolute max 150 but Id prefer to spend less).

I know this is not much but Ive come across a few watches that take my fancy.

Im a big bond fan so Im quite partial to the submariner and seamaster style watches.

At the moment Im stuck between the following four watches:

Seamaster style:
http://www.rotarywatches.com/uk/catalogue/watch/rotary-aquaspeed-collection/agb00013_w_04.aspx

Submariner style:
http://www.amazon.com/Invicta-Diver-Collection-Automatic-8926/dp/B0006AAS4M

Another one I quite liked:

Also liked this one but not sure about the make:

So any thoughts on the above watches? Any help at all is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Maybe a Seiko 007 or Orient Mako would fit the bill here. Just google for them - they are very popular watches.

That Orient is very nice, very close to the submariner.


Would Orient be a better make than Rotary or Invicta?

Would I be better going Quartz over mechanical at this price?

Just my .02, but I'd go quartz at that price range. For a bit more you could buy a used automatic on the sales forum, which is what I'd do. Since it would be a daily wearer it doesn't have to be flawless, so a good used would save some cash.

I like Invicta's, so I would go with that option. However, Invicta does not seem to be well recieved by some people in this watch community so take that into account.
