    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:

    Seiko:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/SEIKO-SARB0...934148139?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item27cc781c2b




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

    Revue Thommen:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Revue-Thomm...090756088?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3f1e44a9f8


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

    Hamilton has some watches that would fit the bill:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/HAMILTON-ME...790479366?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-Gul...087084003?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3f1e0ca1e3

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Parnis-43mm...919077342?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item3a6bf145de

    Also good value are the entry level Orient watches:

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

    But I really like that SBDB001 :slayer:

    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.

    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.
