    If budget is not a concern to you, I will recommend Ball watch . It has the same tritium light as Luminox but more expensive. Most Luminox is quartz but they have a few limited edition mechanical watch.

    If budget is concern to you, I will highly recommend Seiko mechanical watch.

    I would also recommend a Seiko. Maybe a Seiko diver as i have heard many good things about it.

    The Seiko line of diver's watches are a great value and very durable. The SKX-173 and SKX-175 are large watches similar to G-Shocks and built like a tank. Keep in mind, a mechanical watch is not going to have the accuracy of the quartz movements you're used to and the automatics need to be worn to keep them running for any length of time.

    The Seikos above are automatic (self winding) movements that use no batteries. The normal movements of your arm keep them wound.

    Those Seikos, as far as I know, are smaller versions of the SKX007 and SKX009.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    They are the same size at the 007/009. In fact, the 009 and 175 are virtually identical. The 007 and 173 have a slighty different face but are essentially the same. Trust me, these are not small watches, they are big and heavy and have a very solid feel to them. I own both these watches and they are great and do not require batteries.

    They are the same size. They are variants of the 007/009 with slightly different dial treatments for the US market. And yes, they're mechanical, driven my Seiko's 7S26 automatic movement.

    A 007, 009 or 031 is an excellent choice for tough, reliable, affordable first mechanical.
