    Recommend an inexpensive automatic tank!

    I’ve been idly looking for a tank for casual and business attire. I really like the Tissot Lisboa, but am slightly put off by the manual wind and think the case might be too long for my 7.5” wrist. Do I have any options for an automatic under 1K, or am I going to have to start saving up? I really don’t see anything nice below a Cartier or Glashutte, but maybe I’ve missed something. Also not looking for a battery model.

    I believe he meant "tank" as in something loosely based on the Cartier Tank, not necessarily something built like a tank (although that never hurts).

    I suggest checking out the Longines Dolcevita.

    Oris "Rectangular Date" can be had under $1k (grey). Personally I would either save or maybe check out a quartz Longines dolce Vita.

    And my apologies for that. Your “tank”, though, is still really nice.

    Pretty sure since he mentioned liking the Tissot Lisboa it was pretty clear lol.

    Oris has some automatic options <$1000. I like that look too.

    I think you will find saving up is worth it. Catier or even the Ralph Lauren can be found in the $3500- $5000 range on the pre-owned market. I would even consider a Reverso as it wears in the same category. You would be surprised how fast you can save if you put money away each payday, and curb spending habits
