    Sub $200 Watch

    Can anyone help me find an automatic watch for ~$200 USD? I live in Canada so the exchange rate is really going to kill me. I'm open to anything, other than any orient (I own a bambino and black Ray). Leave any suggestions below, cheers!

    As you've ruled another Orient out I think a Seiko 5 is called for. I've not suggested a particular watch because I don't know what style you are seeking and besides there are so many of the things.

    +1 to the Seiko SKX007 or 009, buy through rakuten as the Canadian dollar isn't so terrible against the yen. Still the best bang for your buck diver IMO, works out to about $160 CAD shipped IIRC.

    If you want to go sub-$100, there is always the Invicta 8926C on amazon.ca, the price jumps around but it was around $95 just 2 weeks ago or so. You get a rolex submariner homage with a better seiko movement vs the SKX007 (NH35 with hacking and handwinding vs the 7S26), BUT it is an invicta and so quality and lume are not as amazing as the SKX007. It is highly moddable though, take a look at the numerous modding threads for plenty of examples.

    I recently purchased a Seiko SKX007 and I'm very pleased with it. I wasn't a fan of the strap so I switched it for an oyster band.

    How about a Russian Vostok?

    Komandirskie automatics: Komandirskie watches Automatic

    Amphibian automatics: 060

    Both of these are under $100.

    I own versions of both and I like them. Rugged and not very common.

    Good luck with your search.

    Damn the internet, damn paypal, damn watchuseek. Damn this addiction. I just ordered this because, yeah, I really need another watch - and the second I've ordered this week:



    At least at these prices it's slightly more justifiable
