    I Need recommendations on a watch!

    Hi everyone.
    My first post here
    Im new to fine watches and I'm looking to make my first "nice" watch purchase and would like some recommendations. I would like to spend anywhere around $50 to $150.

    I have been looking at many models by Seiko that fit my price range, are there any other brands and/or models that you think I should consider?

    Any Seiko models that you recommend as well?

    It must have a steel bracelet and I prefer diver, sport and military styles but these styles are not a must.

    Sorry my description of what I am looking for is so non specific. I'm at the point where after I get a few watches of my own i will have a better idea of what I like and don't like.

    Thanks a lot!

    EDIT: I'm open to suggestions on any quality brand around that budget. Thanks

    Any Seiko 5 you like. You'll get one in any design you want: diver, field watch (military), sports watch... Technically and quality wise the're pretty much all the same.

    Main question is, what are you looking for? Quartz or Automatic?
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.

    Personally I like Seiko SKX007 and Citizen NY2300.

    Seiko military snzg13 is a good automatic watch which you can swim with it and have automatic movement.

    From my opinion the skx007 is not a very beautiful watch. A very good diver's watch though. Citizen makes the ecodrive but the movement is like a quarts not an auto. apart from the citizen calibre 2100.
