    One Watch - £500 / $800

    This has probably been done before, but what would be "the one" all purpose watch that you'd wear to the beach and the boardroom at around £500 / $800 (doesn't need to be exact limit).

    It may not suit your needs but I have worn my Blumo for all sorts of occasions.

    if the beach is in the works, then you're essentially going to need WR. I'd shoot for a used Oris Aquis. Longines Hyrdoconquest is another option (not for me but many people like it).

    The Blumo and Hydroconquest are very solid suggestions, too.

    Some kind of Rolex Explorer knockoff? That's the only sporty/beater type watch I would consider wearing into the boardroom. I think there's a HydroConquest without a bezel, but I think it's on the more expensive end of that range.

    I know it's frowned upon blah blah but add $100 and get the Oris Big Crown Propilot Date;

    can't imagine a place where that watch would be out of place!


    would put a nato/zulu for the beatch tho!

    Well here's the watch that I wear in exactly those situations. Bernhard Binnacle II. Really a nice watch for the money...

    Beach and boardroom.. I think I would go for a flieger/field styled watch - might be easier to "dress up" for the boardroom, and yet a 100m WR and sapphire crystal should suffice for the beach. It *might* be possible to get a Stowa Ikarus for just around 500 gbp, I think (not 100% sure - iirc they started at around 670 euros, which would be just under 500 quid, yes?).

    With that budget, I'd get a Seiko SBDC027 (LE Sumo).

    Very nice and versatile watch. I really dig mine.
