    Searching for a cheap watch

    I?m searching for a gold colored watch with a brown leather strap for a price less than 700$
    Size :35-39mm
    Dial color : white or cream
    I was searching for an elegant chronograph not too busy but it?s hard to find one at a small size i hope you can find it
    Swiss , japanease , german are all okay
    I prefer an automatic
    I found one watch
    Orient elegant star
    I found it with a 50% discount on a site called creationwatches
    Anybody knows this site is it good ?

    I do not feel that $700 is in the cheap for a watch. At this price point, there are a lot of options. Happy hunting.

    If you are into Orient, then there is Long Island Watches that is having a "Black Friday" special coming up...

    Are you sure you mean a chronograph (= with stopwatch function and several sub-dials)? In that case, Swiss automatic chronographs with gold plated cases in that size will indeed be a bit difficult to find.

    Otherwise, if you're after a clean, dressy watch with those specs for under $700, there should be quite some options. If you''re open to micro brands, the Melbourne Collins 38 may be something: 38mm, Miyota 9015 automatic, ~$500.

    Something like the JUNGHANS CHRONOSCOPE it?s beautiful but it?s 40mm a little bit too big for my liking

    Seiko Alpinist
    Seiko SARB065 or any other "SARB" type watches
    Steinhart Watches
    Tissot
    Squale ATMOS 30 line or 1521 line
    ...and this list can go on and on. Just do a lot of Internet leg work, find a few watches that catches your eye, and really spend time researching your choices. Now, when I mean research, look for articles or forum discussions about your choice watch. Also, You-Tube is an excellent media source (...just do not donate money to Archie Luxury, because he hates any watches that are in your price range). You may find that your choice should be avoided or be a well receptive. This is the fun of watch collecting, the hunt!

    Here are some of my selections after going on my own below 1000 dollar watch safari:

    Creation Watches is a good supplier and you can’t go wrong with an Orient. Especially one of the Star range.
