    Take 2...Best Watch for the $$.

    Hey Hey!

    Thanks to you all for the great help again.

    Sorry....the question was rather vague and still is I guess.

    I'm looking for a pilot or marine style.... 44mm and up.. automatic.

    I have a 7 & 1/8" wrist but I just love that BIG Look.

    I am only able to spend up to 600 dollars.

    The watches I love but are out of my price point are:

    1. Bell & Ross--BR 01-92
    2. Panerai - - Marine diver
    3. Stowa -- Airman Original limited (or that SAME model by another brand)

    I would love to buy watch after watch but I can't.

    Based on this info WHAT SAY YOU...name the best watch....wow too much Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Once again thank you for your time spent helping me I really apprectate it.

    two great choices in the Omega PO and Breitling. Here's another brand: SINN U series. A cult like following.

    Budget?
    I believe in your prior post it was around 600$?

    If you R looking for a good watch, I'd probably look at previously Loved watches. You will probably get more for your money. I am pretty sure you can get agood deal on a used ORIS. They make good sturdy watches and are easily found in the used market. In actuality, there are plenty of really fine watches in good used condition to be found, so I would also not think so much in limiting myself to a certain Brand or type..
    Cheer up, things usually get better with time.

    Take a look at the Debaufre Nav-B limited edition Flieger. It's exactly at the upper end of your price range, but it sure looks like a wonderful watch. Can't wait until mine arrives

    Debaufre/Steinhart make watches similar to the B&Rs, and they have other Flieger styles as well.

    Timefactors PRS-20 is probably a little over $600, depending on the exchange rate. The limited edition is sold out, but the current version looks just as wonderful on your wrist.

    Would a 42mm pilot's watch would do it ? My vote - regarding your limit - goes to the Archimede Pilot. There are a lot of "praising reviews" on the www.
