    Tachymeter watch (<42mm) under $300

    Hi,

    I am looking for a quartz / solar tachymeter watch that is similar to the pulsar PZ6005X1 or Invicta I force and under $300. However I am having trouble finding one that has a smaller case diameter. I would like suggestions for watches under 42mm case diameter. I prefer the designs with the tachymeter scale inside the glass. Thanks

    The William L 1985 is an affordable quartz chrono that has both telemetre and tachymeter scales on the watch dial. Case size is 40mm.

    https://www.worldofwatches.com/mens-..._term=Shop+Now

    Price is within your budget at $155.97, but if you add the code WOWIAM62 at checkout, price drops $62.99. No idea how long this current promotion lasts, but it's gone on sale with a promo code fairly frequently at WoW. You have to be OK with at vintage styling however, which is a completely different look than either the Pulsar or Invicta you're looking at.

    No, I'm not a shill for WoW or William L. But I do own this watch and think it's a pretty good value at $63. Your criteria of smaller case diameter and tachymeter scale caught my eye.

    You beat me to the punch, so I'll just add a photo of one of the new tropical dial models.

    I was referring to their "standard" model, which has the tachymeter under the crystal, rather than engraved in the bezel, per the OP's stated preference for such.

    Had one of these back in my college days:

    Did the job. And, once upon a time, I actually knew how to use the tachy bezel.

    How did it get so late so soon?

    That's a slide rule. Tach shows X per hour and is fixed.

    Ah, so it is. I must have been thinking of a different tachymeter watch I had as a kid.
