    Please Help me with my first watch.

    I am looking to buy my first automatic watch! I some people could help me chose. I am looking for a diver under $600 and it should have a uni-directional bezel, water resistance of at least 200m, automatic movement, and similar to my examples. So far I have found these watches, they may help guide you. They are Benarus and Prometheus watches. Here are a few pictures.

    One thing I've found with divers, I prefer having at least some arabic numerals on the face, instead of all lines. Just makes it easier to read in my opinion. That Benarus Remora looks pretty cool, but hopefully someone has direct experience with the brand and can tell you about them.

    The SKX007, a classic watch, great value and quality by Seiko. Around $200

    The Longines Hydroconquest, a little over the budget at $700, but you'll get what you pay for.

    If any of those stand out, just ask a question and we can answer them. Hope that helps! (All pictures were borrowed off the internet)

    Yes the seikos are certenly good, but lack the finnish I am looking for, they are a last resort. But for the Longines, I guess I'll have to look into them. Thanks for your ideas!

    Yes then numerals are very helpful, but in the case of the tritium diver (Prometheus Baiji) I could live without numerals in the compremise for beter lume.
