I've been thinking it might be a good idea to put together a hierarchical list of "good" watches at the 3 figure and below price point similar to the hierarchical suit thread. The question is what criteria should be used? I'm not sure that quartz or non-in-house movements should be ruled out, for instance, but I do think classic style in line with CBD and good build quality need to be in the criteria. I'll post more later when I'm not drunk.
You definitely should for all watches under 1K, especially if you could make different categories such as formal, sporty, etc. - would be a great thread.
BTW, I found that seiko but then started looking for leather croc/gator straps and those damn straps are just as expensive as the watch...what a turd show
