    You could check out MTP series from Casio for a dressy watch with a twist for 50$.
    Here is mine MTP-1339:

    Or you could look for other Seiko 5s to your liking in this thread. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/sho...-a-702513.html

    What is the exact model of the pic or where to buy? thanks for the info

    I would suggest doubling your budget and looking at the incredible options offered by Seagull for around $200. If this is simply not possible, if you could stretch the budget a little bit you could look at some nice looking Orients.

    It is Seiko SNX123 like I mentioned. It has aftermarket strap in the picture which looks like HIRSCH Liberty.
    I have no experience with this seller but here's one Seiko Men's Watch SNX123
    E: Looks like to be unavailable at the moment though.

    There are several really nice seiko 5s to chose from. Look through the threads in this forum and over in the seiko forum to make yourself a short list of really nice models. There are four or five that emerge as the best of the lot.
    Current Rotation: Seiko SARB017, Seiko SARB035, Seiko SKX013, Seiko World Timer (c. 1970).
    Box Sitters: 1972 Zodiac Astrographic (Yeah, baby!), Patek Calatrava (I bring that out for special occasions).

    You could try one of these. A Parnis means less than 50 Euro (70 $)

    I will throw in my vote for visiting a Time Factory Outlet. The Timex Originals and Easy Reader series have several very inexpensive, simple and elegant watches that would be right at home in any dressy situation. I just ordered the T2M556, which is styled after the old-school Rolex Datejust:

    Android AD329AG. Always somewhere in the $75 to $95 range online. Available on Amazon.

    It's best to avoid gold tones. Stick to stainless steel.
