I am new here. I've always enjoyed watches but have never owned anything over $150. I have a G Shock, Seiko 5, and a Casio AE-1200. Recently I bought a Casio Duro which I'm loving but the face is getting super scratched up (See pic. It really doesn't look this bad but I caught the light just right to show the scratches) I really like the diver style watch with the uni-directional bezel, which I use as a timer at work. ie. Just cemented a crown, be back in 10 mins. Set dial. Come back in 10. Mostly because I was on a student's budget the past 10 years I never bought anything too expensive but I feel like I'm ready to spend a little more on something.
I'm looking to get a watch that hopefully won't scratch up so bad on me. I'm currently leaning towards a Seiko but thought I'd reach out to the community here to see if you had any other recommendations for dive watches under 1000. Or maybe I'm best to stick with the Seiko for that price point?
