    Classic Men?s Watch That Can Take a Beating

    Hey everyone!

    It?s been a while! I?ve been quite satisfied with my collection of watches, but I started to get the itch again.

    I took a look at my collection and noticed something is missing; a watch with a black or dark grey case with a black or dark grey bezel, classic field design or dive style, with a dark brown leather strap.

    I found one from Shinola that I really like, but I am in no position to spend as much as they cost! I?m hoping you can help me out!

    Here is what I?m looking for:

    Style: Classic field or dive

    Case: Metal, Black or dark grey/gunmetal in color

    Dial: Black or dark grey/gunmetal

    Strap: Brown leather, or the ability to put a brown leather strap on it

    Movement: Solar quartz or automatic, but I will consider regular battery quartz for the right watch

    Size: I have medium to large wrists, so nothing super small or really huge

    Use: I plan on wearing this watch as an everyday beater and work watch (office, business casual), but I would also like it to be able to withstand some moderate abuse like range time, hiking, hunting, and occasional field police work.

    Price: 175 USD is the very highest I can go, but lower is better as I?m trying to save for a house. If I need to purchase a brown strap to go with it, then that will be included in my limit.

    I really appreciate any help you can provide! I have turned to the forum in the past for help, and I?ve always received awesome and trustworthy advice!

    Thanks!

    Can you specify a model less than the OP's upper limit of $175? I don't see one less than $259.
