    Just lost a favorite (budget) dive watch, looking for a replacement.......

    I had this Seiko solar-powered 200m dive watch, that i really liked, but it's gone missing. I forget the model, just your basic stainless, analog, dive watch (with an unusual scalloped bezel). I got what i thought was a great deal on it several years ago (about ($115 delivered), and I'm hoping for something of similar quality, and price range. I believe that watch has been discontinued.
    So anyway, I'm not real up on what's what, so i thought i'd get lucky and get some good points in the right direction. I'm after another plain-Jane, traditional stainless dive watch, with virtually zero bells and whistles, just anolog time, rotating bezel, 200m water resist.Should I be looking at other Sekoes ? Citizens? Casio? or..........?

    Pulsar do a few really affordable, <$150 dive style solar watches. It's basically a Seiko, really.

    Never spend more than $100 on a Mushroom!

    Alba are owned by Seiko and have this example. It meets all your criteria including price.

    Thanks for all the solid replies guys ! Just one point: I wasn't necessarily looking for another solar-powered unit, or to replace the exact watch (unless either option are solid and economical). Now i gotta go look more closely at all the suggestions.......:D
