    No date, mechanical, non diver, under $1000

    I've been on the hunt for a specific watch. The rules I gave myself are no date, mechanical, no homages, not a dive watch, under $1000. New or used. So far I've come up with the following:

    Make Model Price Case Diameter
    Junghans Max Bill Hand-Winding 690 New 34mm
    Junkers 6030-2 Bauhaus 999 New 40mm
    Junkers 6030-5 Bauhaus 999 New 40mm
    Longines Cal 284 250 Used 34mm
    Longines Heritage Railroad automatic ref L2.803.4.23.0 990 Used 40mm
    Omega Cal 269 300 Used 35mm
    Timex Marlin 200 New 34mm
    Hamilton Khaki Field Officer Handwinding 700 New 44mm
    Hamilton Khaki Pioneer mechanical 400 Used 42mm


    The used prices are a little tricky, I tried to find a few examples to get a good idea of what they are normally listed for. I know I must be missing some Chinese and Russian watches. In general I'm not a fan but feel free to include either. Maybe it will help others that are looking for a similar watch.

    And a really nice looking new 38mm Hamilton Khaki handwind. Lots of information in this thread.

    Smiths PRS-29a Smiths PRS-29 Timefactors
    Smiths Everest Smiths PRS-25 Timefactors

    The PRS 35. 36 and 37 also seem to fit your criteria.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I forgot to mention I was also trying to avoid homage watches. So I'd probably stay away from Stowa and the Smiths Everest watch.

    But that being said, I'm not sure about the Smiths PRS-29. Doesn't look like they were a part of the original 'Dirty Dozen' but I do believe they were around during that time. So they may have made a W.W.W watch?

    And that Hamilton certainly fits the bill! I remember seeing that thread a little bit ago but I didn't realize it was now officially out.

    The dateless Hammy Khaki is one of the nicest military style designs I've seen. It was the date on the smaller handwind Hamilton Khaki that turned me off.

    Stowa is homage watches? Homage to Deck watches on the ships perhaps, but Marine style is a style (like Diver is a style and not all divers watch is homage to Rolex Sub). Stowa Marine watches as far as I know isn't really an "Homage" of sort that most "homage" watches now a days go with.

    You could also get a used Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie Ultra Slim, 39mm, no-date, hand winder for that money.
