    Need help picking out a dress watch under $300

    Hey guys need some helping finding a dress watch under $300 for a friend. Dial size around 38-42mm. Automatic or hand wound would be preferred but I consider a quartz. Any help would be appreciated.

    For that price range, I'd prolly pick a Tissot. Just my personal opinion. I don't have one, but they seem to be pretty darn good value. Here would be a few suggestions I would give:

    Tissot Classic Dream - $160
    Tissot Men's T0334101605300 Classic Dream Strap Watch: Watches:

    Similar model, different color - $160
    Tissot Men's T0334101601300 T-Classic Dream White Dial Brown Leather Strap Watch: Watches:

    Those are 38mm

    This is a 42mm but it goes $30 over your budget...hate to be one of THOSE guys.

    Tissot T Classic Tradition Chronograph Silver Dial Mens Watch T0636171603700: Watches:

    I know you said you prefer automatics but will consider quartz, these are all quartz.

    Daniel Wellington, if you'll consider quartz. On leather, they're something like $230.

    Here's my Orient Cosmos. I'm not sure if they still make this version but I got mine for around $130 from Orient USA.
    40mm diameter with 22mm lugs. Its my everyday work watch.
