    Need a <$700 chronograph for dad's christmas present

    We're trying to buy my dad a new or NOS chronograph.

    Japanese movement is fine but we'd prefer to stay away from chinese ones if possible. I am happy to entertain suggestions that I am idiot for this line of reasoning as well.

    He really prefers gold, and while it obviously won't be gold at this price range we need that look.

    Any suggestions for brands to check? I thought SEIKO would surely be a winner here but I can't seem to find one

    Go to Ebay and search for "Accutron Gemini Chrono" scroll down the page and you'll find a rose gold swiss auto chrono for around $650. They are well made watches, I'm positive that your dad will love it.

    Not much wrong with this Tissot at $470 - if you (your dad, actually) don't mind quartz, of course:

    Tissot PRC200 is a good rec, but I think this might be a better look

    You can find some Hamilton auto chronos in that price range if you look around.

    As you've already seen, Tissot do some really nice chronos. Why not take a look and see if any of them float your boat?
