    Question Daily watch options

    I'm trying to pick a daily "beater" and need some ideas. I really like clean military or divers, and 24H markers are a plus. I also prefer automatics. I also want to keep it around or below $500.

    I am considering the following:

    A) Marathon GSAR


    B) Hamilton Khaki Navy GMT (Although I don't like the tz display on the side/top of the watch)


    C) Hamilton Khaki King Scuba


    D) Glycine Combat


    I'm open to suggestions/recommendations too...

    I like 40mm + but anything in that range will do.

    Ah yes... Here's a Seiko suggestion then...

    Seiko SNZG15... 100 bucks or so. Nylon strap, military watch, 41.5mm, durable hardlex crystal up front, exhibition caseback... 23 jewel automatic in house movement...

    I'd much rather beat up a 100 dollar watch than a 500 dollar watch...

    Seiko / Orient / Hamilton
