    Best looking chronograph for under $500

    I just started getting into watches and I'm wondering what's the coolest chrono under $500 out there? I really like Chopards in general, Tag's Grand Carrera and the Grande Vitesse (some of which I plan to purchase in the future), anything similar recommendations??
    I bought Christopher Ward's C7 Rapide and I really really like it:



    (I'll post pics from my actual watch as soon as I receive the black strap as mine came with a brown strap by accident )

    Thanks!

    this one might run you a tad over $500, but I bet you can find a nice Automatic Victorinox for under $500 if you look.

    Sapphire Crystal with AR coating
    Valjoux 775x Movt,



    This Hamilton Khaki just sold for around $500 on the bay.

    Valjoux 775x
    Sapphire
    the works....



    I am sure you can find something with these 2 brands that youll love for under $500.

    At this price point, the above poster is right on the money. If you want an automatic chrono for under $500, Hamilton or Swiss Army (Victorinox) are the way to go.

    Cheers,

    The Hamilton Chronos are fantastic, my little bro got this one brand new for exactly $500.

    If you would consider vintage, a minty Seiko 6138 is a much nicer movement than a standard 7750, and comes in a wide range of styles from classically conservative to 70s funk.

    There a number of Tissot chronographs under $500 (street price). One of my favorites is the Couturier.

    I like the Christopher Ward's C7 Rapide you chose. As a variation from that this is one of my favorites under $500, an ESQ Stratus:



    Maybe you would like this Tissot:
