    Automatic Swiss made chronograph under $1500

    Looking to pick up a daily beater swiss made automatic chronograph for under $1500. Any recommendations?

    Must have specs:
    Case size: 40-42mm
    Lug to lug length: no more than 48mm
    Sub dials placement: 3, 6, 9 hour markers and preferably contrasting color to the main dial.

    Watches I’m considering are:
    Chopard Mille Miglia with numbered bezel.
    Fortis Marinemaster Vintage - blue sub dial

    Chopard Mille Miglia Chronograph is under $1,500 and a daily beater? Count me in!

    I guess let me clarify Mille Miglia under 1500 will be a preowned and so is the fortis Marinemaster Vintage limited edition produced back in 2012.

    A number of Swiss made Hamilton & Victorinox automatic chronographs can be found at discount sources for well under your $1500 criteria. I own a couple:

    None fits the criteria (Sub dials placement: 3, 6, 9 hour markers). Valjoux 7750 is out.
    Kind regards

    Well, if I might be a total pedant for a minute, it's still hypothetically possible if it's rotated into a bullhead arrangement. And... it looks like at least one company has done exactly that:

    Technically this guy actually fits all of OPs criteria, but I have to imagine it's not exactly what he was thinking.

    If you are looking for used ones it's hard to beat the Eberhard Tazio Nuvolari:

    Search ebay for "Eta 7753" and tick the "include description" box. You'll find a couple of options there, e.g. used Porsche Design Dashboard chronos (a bit bigger than 42mm, but they wear really well on small wrists!), new Davosa Business Pilot, Hamilton Jazzmaster,..
