    Looking for a budget watch, preferably with blue dial

    Hi, I´m looking for an affordable watch (maximum: 300$), preferably with a blue dial. The case diameter ideally should be 40 mm or below, but this also depends on the lug to lug width. As a reference, my wrist has a 6.25-6.3 inches circumference while my wrist width is 2.4 inches. At the moment I´m wearing a Tissot PR 50 with a leather strap. I would prefer buying a watch having a bracelet. It does not matter whether it works with quartz or an automatic movement. I should mention that I don´t like divers too much.


    Thanks in advance

    This Seiko SARG015 can be had for just a shade above $300 on Amazon now:

    If $300 is a hard limit, then check this site for 20 or so budget-friendly Seiko 5 models.

    EDIT: Sorry, the watch pictured above has a 42 mm diameter. The link provided will still be useful, though.

    I saw a Ti Citizen Eco-Drive for sub $180 at Costco last week. I can't remember if it was sapphire or not, but I would guess that it was not for that price. I do not have the model number info though.

    I second the idea of a blue Bambi.

    A great one which is just slightly above your price is the Victorinox Swiss Army Men's Classic Chronograph Blue Dial Watch. I really like it and for that price its a great watch.

    Seiko SNK793? 37 or 38mm, can be had for well under $100. (Improved meaningfully by also buying a leather strap, though.)

    I also have the blue Victorinox pictured above. It's an attractive and solid watch, if it's not too big for you at 41mm-ish.

    How about a Mido Ocean Star?
