    Question Help a young starter

    New to the forums nice to meet everyone in 16 and want to start to get into watches being 16 my budget is limited. Iam looking for a watch that is water resistant to at least 200m or more and has a chronograph with mins and sec and either stainless steel or titanium band nothing small but nothing huge and bulky. very picky and that why i have come here. wondering if i can get a couple options.

    How about a Seiko Solar Dive Chronograph... it comes in a few colours but here is SSC021:

    SSC017 (with the bracelet):

    If you're willing to buy from somewhere online like Skywatches in Singapore these are under US$200.

    have looked at the seiko ssc141p with the black watch face and silver band and pulsar pv6003x with the nice blue fan of them but they are only 100m water resistant if that helps with type of style.

    only trouble i have with the ssc017 is the blue and black just don't seem to mix just in my opioion and just looks to much bulky compared the a bit of a cleaner look and the big bulky hands may just be the photo though.

    A dive chronograph with 200m of WR is going to look inherently bulky.

    The Seikos mentioned above wear pretty well, though, partly because they’re quartz-driven and not mechanical. Give them a try if you can find them in a shop.

    Welcome. I think looking at Japanese is necessary and wise for a starter piece..especially since you have certain spec in mind.

    Enjoy!

    Welcome aboard mate.

    1.2k is a lot to spend at your age when youre just getting into the hobby as your tastes will change.

    Stick with the Japanese brands imo, seiko, citizen, orient, casio, the Japanese make the best bang for buck imo and some of the best dive watches in the world.

    Seiko would be my choice, and you can buy a great seiko diver for well under $500au.

    Check this site out WatchSleuth - Searchable Watch Catalogs you can search, view and compare every seiko diver ever made and in production.

    To check current 2nd hand prices view www.watchrecon.com, its a site that combines all of the adds from the forums, only use paypal and dont use the family and friends option you should be ok.

    How bigs your wrist? measure around it with a tape measure.

    Tough set of criteria.

    Welcome to the Forums from a West Aussie!

    If you are able to be flexible about the Chronograph part, as in, not require a Chronograph feature, then AUD$1,200.00 will get you a nice mechanical Dive Watch with 200m of Water Resistance.
