Much appreciated

Not quite a poor mans watch but not fancy enough for the "other thread" Maybe we should start a middle class watch thread?

I beg to differ: be bolder in sharing real world watches in TWAT, and keep the sanctity of the PMW rules.

If you don't mind quartz, I highly recommend Scurfa. They are designed by an actual professional diver and he definitely puts them through the paces and still keeps the prices low. They are planning to put out their first watch with an automatic movement sometime in the coming weeks too.

 

Yes, this looks like a very good value, with a screw-down crown and 300 m water rating, surgical grade 316L stainless, and sapphire domed anti-reflective crystal. Scurfa also makes the model below. Both are $175 delivered. They use decent Swiss quartz movements (Ronda 515 Power Tech). A dive watch you might actually dive with.

I've been wearing this Hamilton Khaki Navy Sub automatic watch more and more lately - it's becoming one of my favorites in my rotation:

 

 

 

Looks really "manly" and is very affordable for a Swiss auto. You can read my full review here: http://www.prakticala.com/2016/06/hamilton-khaki-navy-sub-automatic-watch-review-h78615135/

Great looking watch! Love Seikos! First brand I fell in love with and still my favorite.

Picked up the enameled dial SARX019, will try to get some real pictures soon. Picked up the laquored SARX029 as well, but will wait for my birthday to open that one.

I just cant stop buying them. You get so much for your money. 

 

Here is my 200m diver solar with screndown caseback and chrono buttons.

agreed. I have 7 or 8 Seikos and other assorted divers. Most of mine are divers, most automatics. This isn't a diver but 10bar, 23j automatic with visible back. Gray market from Japan.
