    Really affordable Mechanical movement watch

    Hello,

    I am looking for a simple design about 40mm sized watch. I want a manual wind mechanical movement vintage style and stainless steel construction. I am wearing to work, and prefer not to spend a lot.
    Thanks for the help.

    Get a Vostok. Russian.

    40mm, manual wind, ~$50 on Ebay.

    By vintage, do you mean dress/classic style, and not diver etc?

    You really need to visit the 'Affordable Watches' and 'Chinese Mechanical Watches' forums.

    TONS of watches you like the one describe.

    What's not a lot to you? To some, "not a lot" is $20; to others, it's under $5,000.

    Stuhrling and their susidiary, Akribos, sells the kind of styles you may be looking for. Check out their website to get an idea of what kinds of styles may interest you~good luck!

    Do you specifically not want an automatic? I think the Seiko Monsters are a great value.

    Not sure what you mean by "really affordable", but they don't get any more affordable than this (suggestion: hang out in the Affordables forum).

    Here are some choices (I love it when I can show off my El Cheapos!):

    The "Classic" $60.00 automatic:



    The $50.00 manual:



    The $50.00 skeleton manual:



    The $35.00 "Complication" automatic:



    The $60.00 24 hour manual:



    The $89.00 automatic:



    Or go all out with the $240.00 "expensive" manual:
