    Can you recommend me a watch in 400-600 € (or $) range?

    Hi all!

    New here, and seeking the wisdom of all of you watch gurus,


    I'm looking for a new watch in 400-600 € range, same sum in $, as if the watch is shipped to Europe, the sum gets pretty much the same in euro amount when VAT, customs and shipping costs are paid.

    Some criteria for the watch:

    Movement: Prefer quartz, but automatic would be ok also.

    Dial: Black dial, sapphire glass

    Size: 42mm - 45mm without the crown

    Complications: At least date

    Can be a normal three hand or a chronograph and everything in between except digital.

    Regarding the strap, got 2 options, either steel bracelet for more of a sporty watch or leather strap(no croco) for more of a dressy watch.

    Would like to be able to use the watch with business casual, jeans & t-shirt and if possible, with a suit.

    Prefer Swiss and German watches, so no Seikos or Citizens please this time.

    Could be either new or used.


    Looking forward to hearing your answers!

    In this range I would check out brands like Certina, Hamilton, Edox, Zeno Watch Basel, or Steinhart. Plenty to offer that should match your criteria.
    "This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel,
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down."

    If you prefer quartz, then the range is huge. Quartz chronos are very much available in that price range whereas you'd struggle to find a mechanical Chrono. To get an idea perhaps at least look at a site like chrono24.com and enter your criteria - price range, movement etc to see what's out there.
    Current - Archimede Pilot 39 // Orient Bambino (Steel with black dial) // Seiko 5 - SNKL09 // Seiko SARB017 Alpinist // Lip GDG 145

    Want list (Subject to change) - Tissot Heritage PR156 // Dugena Festa (Junghans Meister if the budget stretches) // Steinhart Ocean Vintage GMT // Nomos Club // Longines Heritage Diver // Mido Commander Chronometer // Stowa Seatime // Stowa Fleiger T01 Testaf // Laco Vintage // March La.B AM3 Marron // G. Gerlach Tritium // Oris Chronoris // Glycine Airman SST 12 // Tutima Saxon One

    If only* (Also subject to change) - Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra // Omega Speedmaster Chronograph // Sinn Model 140 st // Damasko Modell DK101 // Mühle Terranaut Trail // Genesis Lemania // Rolex Milgauss // Glash
    ütte Original Sixties Square Chronograph // Vulcain - Nautical Seventies and Cricket Extreme (I'm partial to Vulcain generally) // Grand Seiko Hi-Beat // Hajime Asaoka Tourbillon

    *(AKA - not in this lifetime)
