    Confused Can't Find Automatic + Day/Date + >28,800 vph + $400 to $1500

    Hello, I have searched everywhere and through various forums for an affordable watch that has the following features (<$1500 but preferably in the $600 range):

    -Automatic
    -Has Day & Date
    -Has greater than or equal to 28,800 VPH
    -At least 100M water resistance
    -And is between $400 & $1,500. $1000 is pushing it, $600 range best.

    I have searched for hours over the last week and can't find any. The closest two I found are:
    - Invicta Pro Diver model 22478
    - Tissot TIST0194301603101 Heritage Visodate

    Problem is the Invicta model has not come to the market yet and is HUGE and VERY expensive; and, the Tissot which would be perfect, is not water resistant enough. It wouldn't last a week.

    Can anyone please help me?

    Thanks!

    Oh, I currently own a Seiko SNZB23J2 an love it. I want one similar to it only with more VPH, meaning a smother second hand.

    Second hand (vintage/ 80s) Tudor Day Date could fall in the upper end of your budget.

    New watches: Raymond Weil Freelancer Day Date (~$1000), Tissot Visodate (Day date version, ~$500)

    An automatic watch priced between $400 and $1,500 that is > 28,800 bph will be impossible to find unless you look at vintage pieces from Zenith, Zodiac, etc., that run at 36,000 bph.
    There should be plenty of day/date watches = 28,800 in that price range. Check out offerings from Hamilton like their Jazzmaster.

    I bought this Tudor D/D used - 18 years old - for under your $1500 estimate.

    How about under $2,000 new? That would be the most I could ever pay and that would be after months/a year of savings. I would prefer me watches, but I guess if I find an old one in really good condition, I would buy it.

    For affordable day-date automatic watches, the first thing that came to my mind was Seiko 5.

    How about a TH Carrera day date. 1600ish gray market, comes in several colors, 100m WR, day date complications. I have the GMT version of this Carrera and can say it's a nice piece.

    Just read the 100M WR requirement. D'oh.

    Tag Heuer Carrera seems like an excellent choice, as per above.

    Hamilton may have a bunch of models, as pointed out as well.

    The Raymond Weil Freelancer DD I mentioned has 100m WR

    For really high beat I'm afraid you'll have to go vintage; Longines and Seiko come to mind, but water resistance will not be guaranteed.
