    Any recommendations on a watch sold directly from Amazon that's under $500?

    I have this 20% off coupon I want to use that's limited to watches sold directly from Amazon (so no 3rd party like Jomashop) and is under $500.

    Can't be a Seiko Monster.

    Any suggestions? Unfortunately the FCs don't seem to be sold directly from Amazon, as those were the first ones I thought of.

    Unfortunately, there are no Hamilton or Tissot in that price range that are sold direct from Amazon. This page will show you all the men's brands sold direct from Amazon for $200 to $500, and clicking on the brand will show you the watches. There are no Hamilton or Tissot, but there are 110 Citizens, 28 Seikos, 107 Orients, 77 Momentums.......... and 637 (!) Invictas.

    Amazon.com: see all results

    You might want to try Amazon Warehouse deals (type "warehouse deals" in Amazon's search box):


    • Expand "All Departments" and look for watches. Once there you can search like any other Amazon department (brand, price, rating...)
    • I usually just choose "see more" under brands and then browse alphabetically. It's slower but at least you'll see all the brands you might be interest in
    • If you find a watch and choose "all offers" you'll see the "fulfilled by Amazon" prices along with the others
    • The issue is that these items that have been returned to Amazon, so in some cases packaging or minor blemishes can be an issue. However, since everything is covered by Amazon returns are easy if you don't like what you get
    • Selection is hit or miss as you'd expect, but often the difference between these prices and the lowest gray market prices can be a few hundred dollars or more.


    I know you're looking for an FC so the style's probably off and the price is over you're limit, but this Oris gives you an idea what I'm talking about.

    Oris Men's 73576414766LS BC3 Sportsman Day Date Black DLC Case and Leather Strap Watch (in used - like new condition / packaging might be damaged) - $580 sold through Amazon:

    MSRP is $1575. Grey market deal Authentic Watches has it listed on sale (with an 8 week lead time) for $1239. Jomashop has it for $1069. A Google shopping search shows the cheapest price for any version of this watch - via lesser known sites - is $844...So on the surface at least this seems like a pretty good deal. Not all of them are like this, but I've seen more than a few...it's just hit or miss because the limited inventory's always changing.
