Something like this Steinhart GMT can be had for around $300 if you look at some wellknown watch websites.

Should I be suspicious of $30 seikos whose auctions are ending in 20 minutes?

I recently purchased this watch http://tinyurl.com/4bhujg (looks a lot better in person) not a bad watch for only 95 dollars

Another great watch I saw yesterday, out of your range at $795, but marked down from $1495 it's a pretty good deal - if you love Jazz, this is off the hook

Anything from Tissot, Seiko, or Swatch will serve you well.

And why not? Simpler (and certainly more advanced) technology, bigger bang for buck, more features (at a cheaper price) and so on, ad infinitum. If anything, going quartz or quasi-digital for that price will give you some really good options (e.g. Tissot T-touch). I've never understood going with a wind-up or an automatic watch, unless you are planning on going to the moon or to a place where you are magically going to be away from a battery store for the next few years. And even then, just carry another bloody watch. If you want brand name and elitism, then fine, go with an automatic or whatever. But if you want good functionality and superior technology at a cheaper price, nothing can beat quartz.

Metlin, I suggest you buy your rubber wellies now, and give up all those nice shoes. Automatics are better because movements are beautiful.

That one is amazingly attractive. Very elegant, even compared to watches at higher price levels.
