    Looking for a £300-£500 auto dive watch

    Hi all.
    I've been looking around for a watch for a while now and posted here before about two watches and was introduced to Steinhart. I've been looking at their Ocean one and Forty Four for a while and I like them, but I can't help but think that they look too much like a Submariner and Deep Sea Dweller respectively. I looked at the christopher ward ones aswell and I like how they change a few things but they're a bit out of my price range. My criteria are a water resistant(swimming), steel bracelet, automatic, reasonably tough and also a bit shiny at the same time if you understand me, any recommendations?
    Thanks

    Which Christopher Wards have you been looking at? The C60 should definitely be under £500, even the bracelet version. Every now and then there are promo codes popping up, I got mine with £60 off.

    +1 on Seiko. How about this SARB059 Alpinist Spirit?

    You could also go for one of the SKX divers such as a 007 (and save a fair bit but still get a great watch) or a New Monster.

    You seem british. I don't know why you are even asking this question. Christopher Ward, a london based company is making stunning watches at that point coupled with spectacular customer service. I just ordered my 2nd watch from them and hell, it might not be the last.

    Here is what I recieved last july and the honeymoon isn't even over yet !

    They are also well within your price range.

    I would look hard at the Stowa Seatime. It is beautiful, reasonably priced, and is a homage to nothing but itself.
