    Looking for an Automatic

    I want watches that look like this


    -Around $200
    -Automatic
    -36mm-39mm Case
    -can be manually wound
    -clear case back is always nice

    The hamilton khaki auto 38mm I showed looks exactly like what I want but it is $500-600, if there is a similar automatic that was like $250 that would be perfect. I know that at this price range an automatic won't be as accurate as the hamilton and I am fine with that. I already own the citizen and I really like it but I want an automatic. The orient mako also looks great but, at 41mm, it is a little big to me for my 6" wrist.

    Then get a Seiko 5 and pretend to wind it. The style you are looking for is called a Beobachtungsuhr

    Can't remember the last time I wished I could hand wind my 009 Seiko.

    It's more accurate than my Rado which goes for six or seven times as much money.

    hmm. I thought that if I couldnt hand wind it then it would not survive the entire night and I would have to reset it everyday. If that is not true then I would definitely consider a seiko 5. Do you know of one that has a similar style face as the hamilton I showed? I would like to actually have the arabics.

    Re: Looking for an Automatic

    thank you these do look like what I want. But for $250 I would have liked to get an automatic. However, I've never had a mechanical before so I don't know if hand winding it all the time is a pain or not. I will definitely consider this one since it is quite cheap for a swiss watch.

    It takes all of 10 seconds to wind a watch and 10 seconds to set, no pain at all.

    If you plan to wear it all day, that won't be an issue. If you usually wear you watch less than eight or ten hours a day, though, you might have a problem. Even then, you could always just move the watch in some gentle circles to charge it up.

    I found this seiko 5 SNKN33 that I like but I cant find anywhere that is selling it. Anyone know of a good site to buy the less popular types of seiko 5s?
