    Look for Invicta Pro Driver on ebay.

    Walmart has an Armitron automatic $100.

    You would be much better off looking at Japanese autos for that price as they are a much better value at the lower price points. A bargain basement ETA movement alone costs around $100. That doesn't leave much for the rest of the watch (case, crystal, bracelet, etc....) for $150. Probably would only find used or damaged watches. You can get a very nice Seiko SKX007, Orient Mako or Citizen auto for that price.

    I don't think the Walmart Armitron is Swiss made.

    You have to go vintage for good Swiss autos at that price range, and even then, none of the really good ones ... perhaps a Titoni, Enicar or Favre-Leuba?

    The walmart is Japanese, going along with your thoughts. I purchased a nice copy of an Invicta Pro Driver for around a hundred on eBay. Well made case, heavy watch if you like that, I do. I also purchased an orange monster used for one fifty. Great diver.

    You can not find a Swiss made watch with a swiss Auto. movement for that price.
    Most OEM straps cost more.

    So, probably Invicta would be my best bet? Anybody else, I already have an Invicta Pro Diver auto, but the movement is Japanese. Always wanted a Swiss auto........

    Skip the Ladies, Drink and Fags, and save, save, save!!

    I would say you have very good selection starting at about $2000.

    I wouldn't recommend a new Invicta to anyone since there QC has gone down hill IMO. Check a Seiko, Orient or even a Bernhardt.
