New member to the forum, although I have been reading posts / opinions and discussions on here for some time - great source !
I have a bit of a collection and have always entertained the idea of budget timepieces (definitely prefer known watchmakers, rather than designer watches), partly because I can't seem to satisfy my urge with a single watch and I know I'll end up wanting another soon after; and partly because my lovely wife would have my behind if I started hashing out larger sums on my little "obsession".
That being said, I am interested in adding to my collection with either a Citizen or a Seiko, neither of which I have and long been thinking of. I have however purchased both brands as gifts (ironically one of them being a nice titanium Citizen eco-drive for my wife). After some searching, I've come across the three options below that sparked my interest. I would very much appreciate any feedback / input and opinions on this or any alternatives that would fall in this price range ($99-$150).
1. Citizen Eco-Drive AW0031-52E
2. Seiko Kinetic SKA603
3. Seiko SNQ101
Many thanks in advance for your responses !
