    Looking for best affordable Hand wind watch from SWISS or a German brand with good reputation

    Hello everyone

    I need recommendations for the best looking hand wind watch (I HOPE IF IT HAS SUB DIALS LIKE CHRONOGRAPH)

    I’m looking for one under $400.00 PRE OWNED PRICE (I hope that it be a high beat one more than 21.000 beats)

    I hope that it be a Swiss one or a German brand with a good reputation like Sinn etc..

    Thank you and hope that you post some photos

    Hamilton Khaki but not a chronograph.



    If you want an handwinding chronograph I would recommend a Seagull or a Poljot as the cheapest Swiss manual chrono is the 7760 and you can't find in that price range, new or used.

    Look out for a vintage 7733. Out of current swiss or german production for 400 bucks ? Don‘t think so.
    Kind regards

    Thanks... but I didn’t like that style from Hamilton

    Have a look see how the Steinhart Nav B grabs you.

    Hi there!

    Check eBay, I bought 3 Swiss vintage mechanical Tissots for 90euros each...

    All 3 however needed a service after I received them, each 137euros

    Now I have 3 Swiss mechanical Tissots for each 227euros if you add the service cost!

    Good deal I would say

    Good luck with your hunting!

    You're looking for handwound Swiss/German chrono or handwound Swiss/German watch with seconds subdial?

    For the former,I think the price will be higher than that,for latter you might find one with higher beat 6497/6498 movt (standard 649x movt only have 18k bph,whereas the 6497 used by Panerai has 21.6k bph)

    But then,for seconds subdial you won't be able to tell the difference between 18 vs 21.6k bph....

    Well, I checked the Nav B but didn’t like it

    I liked the Steinhart styles in general as it look like the Submariner

    How do you see the brand?? And can I find an Ocean One with ceramic bezel and GMT hand for under $400??
