The Watch Appreciation Thread - Page 1020

post #15286 of 34778

I'm sorry having a terribly bad styleforum day today...but my price rand is less than $350 not $600 (typo I'm afraid to say). Though my friends at the Aus Member thread have given me this one: Hamilton Khaki as a recommendation.

Thanks despite that :) Will probably be a week before I kop it so if you have any recommendations feel free to tell :)

Your best bang for the buck will be a higher end Orient Star or Seiko. They are nice quality, with in-house movements.

Here are some examples:

Orient Star:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Orient-Star-Classic-WZ0251EL-Automatic-Watch-/200843460910?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item2ec334012e


Seiko:

If you want a Swiss watch, there are a few brands that will deliver good quality at that price point:

Revue Thommen:

Kemner makes nice watches with either Swiss or Chinese movements in them.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/erkahund/m.html


Hamilton has some watches that would fit the bill:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HAMILTON-MEN-AUTOMATIC-JAZZMASTER-SAPPHIRE-SOLID-STEEL-40mm-LEATHER-H38515555-/110969822061?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item19d6511b6d

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HAMILTON-MEN-AUTOMATIC-VIEWMATIC-41mm-ROSE-GOLD-SAPPHIRE-LEATHER-H32645555-/130790479366?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item1e73b85606


At the lower end of the price spectrum are some Chinese watches: (very good bang for the buck here.)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Sea-Gull-D0721S-automatic-watch-sun-moon-phase-date-week-day-/271087084003?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3f1e0ca1e3

Also good value are the entry level Orient watches:

Wow! Thank's for all the research you put in Kai!  Though ^ say's it all I'm afraid :)

Some of the less expensive watches in my previous post are within your revised price range.


More Chinese watches.

You just gotta love those Seiko divers. They also make great gifts too.

But I really like that SBDB001 icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Something is up with that. 33mm is VERY small. The dial looks different too from other vintage dials I have seen. Typical used Khaki will run around $300-400.

I'd go to the Poor Man Watch thread for that price range.

What do you guys think of this:

post #15299 of 34778
I don't think my tastes are cool or refined enough for this thread, but I thought the Double Jeu was the nicest watch ever a few years ago.
post #15300 of 34778
I know you probably are asking others that post in this thread more frequently but I cant get past the big "T" in Piaget
