    Question Looking for a watch similar to Russel Crowe in A Good Year

    Hello!

    I watched "A Good Year" yesterday, and I really liked the watch Russel Crowe was wearing. I'm looking to purchase something similar.

    It's not the best picture, but what I'm looking for is essentially:
    • white dial
    • leather strap
    • preferably automatic
    • "gold" coloured case
    • no more than 200 USD
    • same size (35mm?)


    I could find a hundred (or at least a dozen) watches that cover the first five requirements, but I can't seem to find one the same size.

    I've been looking at Orient, particularly the Bambino which I find stunning, but it's 40mm. It looks as if the watch in the movie is closer to 35mm.

    Could someone point me in the right direction? Thank you very much!

    Vintage omega seamaster, but you will have a difficult time finding one in relative good condition at that price point.

    I think if you included hand winding watches, you'd have a very easy time hitting the size and price.
    If you never believe in anything, you'll never be disappointed.

    Yeah, I think an Omega in good condition is a too rich for my blood at this point. Do you reckon I'd have to go vintage to meet my requirements?

    It's either that, or some Chinese brand I'm afraid.

    Have a look mate:

    Just look up gold vintage watches on eBay. Put on a price restriction and you're set.

    Half the fun is the search. Best of luck.
