    Need some help choosing a watch

    Hi fella's,

    Starting a new job soon and I need a watch. Problem is I have a very tight budget, around 100 euro (absolute max 150 but Id prefer to spend less).

    I know this is not much but Ive come across a few watches that take my fancy.

    Im a big bond fan so Im quite partial to the submariner and seamaster style watches.

    At the moment Im stuck between the following four watches:

    Seamaster style:

    Submariner style:

    Another one I quite liked:

    Also liked this one but not sure about the make:

    So any thoughts on the above watches? Any help at all is much appreciated.

    Maybe a Seiko 007 or Orient Mako would fit the bill here. Just google for them - they are very popular watches.
    Lots of dive watches.

    That Orient is very nice, very close to the submariner.

    Would Orient be a better make than Rotary or Invicta?

    Would I be better going Quartz over mechanical at this price?

    Just my .02, but I'd go quartz at that price range. For a bit more you could buy a used automatic on the sales forum, which is what I'd do. Since it would be a daily wearer it doesn't have to be flawless, so a good used would save some cash.

    Don't make me go Blackbelt on ya!

    I like Invicta's, so I would go with that option. However, Invicta does not seem to be well recieved by some people in this watch community so take that into account.

    I have several Invictas, and they are good for the price. Plus, they make many in your price range and style preference. Here are a couple I found at
