    I am not sure on the Seiko front but you can get a few Citizen watches for that

    https://www.seiyajapan.com/products/...ver-bj7111-86l

    Here is the Promaster GMT from Citizen. It can be had for less then this price but this seller is very trustworthy and a forum favorite so spending a few more bucks to buy it from him is not a bad thing

    This watch has the following

    1. Diver
    2. Quartz (is solar so you need not replace the battery for decades)
    3. Is titanium
    4. Has a GMT function (great for travel use)
    5. Can be had for less then $400

    Not at all certain about Seiko but take a look at Scurfa.

    I was just going to suggest scurfa as well.

    They make some well priced tanks.

    Deep Blue has a wide range of quartz models with sapphire crystals. I believe Glycine does as well.

    Check out the Victorinox inox divers. They can usually be had less than $400 and should check all your boxes

    I've been beat to the punch by 3 people in this thread so far. Don't own one but Scurfa seemingly gets great praise.

    I think the previous replies are right in that Citizen probably owns this category right now. But Seiko came close in 2016 with the solar Ti divers for "under $500"... (there's at least one listed new for $466 on eBay now)

    The series of SBDN019, SBDN015, SBDN017, SBDJ011, SBDJ009, SBDJ013

    (thank you worn and wound for putting them all together in one image).

    That also included each model in a midsize 38.8 (top row) which is... Really unusual for Modern Seiko. They called it a women's size but in trying to make that they may have accidentally made their first mid-sized ISO diver in a long time.

    I think the 200m Solar Tunas qualify too, and they're ~$300... No sapphire though (actually now that I think about it, the SBDBs aren't either)

    Not from Seiko - you might want to check out the Dive Watch Forum there are lots of micros that meet your criteria
