    Similar watch to Steinhart Ocean ONE

    Hello,

    I am interested in buying a watch as a gift from me to me for graduating from law school.

    I like Steinharts Ocean One with aluminium bezel. But that "Submariner" look is not a must.

    I want you to suggest a brand/watch that is in that same price range (means around $400 or 350€) and has:

    Sapphire crystal
    Automatic (if its a really really nice watch I can take quartz as well, but I try to avoid that)
    Says "Swiss made" on face.

    Thank you in advance!

    A homage of a homage?! That's a first. (Sorry, couldn't resist!)

    Try Squale: Squale Watches | Swiss Made | Free Shipping

    They have some good, interesting history dating back to the mid-1940's. Here's a good read from Hodinkee: https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/bl...tory-of-squale

    And congrats on your incoming law degree!

    Mav got in before me but Squale is the obvious choice.

    Once again Apple if I’d meant Mac instead of Mav that’s what I would have written - sheesh!

    First of all, congratulations on finishing law school. Trust me, I know what an accomplishment that is. I had a guy drop out the first week of 1L in my class.

    Second, if I may suggest something a little different? How about a MKII Hawkinge?

    Or maybe an original design from a company like Hamilton? Many choices in your price range, but I'm partial to the Khaki Field.

    you want swiss so much that you'll settle for a Swiss Quartz Homage of a Homage.

    I think the Steinhart is a fine choice. By don't need the "Submariner" look, are you still interested in a diver, just not necessarily a sub homage?

    "Swiss made" under $500, probably limited to like Tissot, Certina, Hamilton, Glycine, all would have divers around your price range.
