    A watch that is worth it's price (under 150$)

    What watch in your opinion is worth its price?
    It could be a dress watch or a dive watch or a digital one too.

    For digital, look at various Pulsar models, most have full stainless steel case, either round or octagonal.

    Many Casio G-Shocks and Edifice models also fall below $150, and are very well made and reliable.

    For a mechanical watch, the Amphibia is a "living fossil", designed in 1967-68 and in production since then. Most of mine were about $75, which I thought was a bargain.

    I have to be honest, every watch I own under $150 is worth what I paid. In my personal opinion Parnis represent the best value for money watch available. ALL luxury brands represent the worst value for money, but that doesn't mean they aren't great watches

    Best sub-$150 watch imo is the Orient Mako ii.

    These are nearly bulletproof: MDV-106 Marlin......the screaming best deal on the planet at $38 (sometimes as low as 25 new)

    Today would be a good day to delete your Facebook account:

    Here is why:

    I own the Maco XL. I bought it from a collector for £130 (about $160). Watches are dearer in the UK, as are most things. Whilst I like the watch, I find the quality very sketchy. Mineral crystal, 60 click bezel that moves to freely, noisy bracelet, and a movement that gains 3 minutes if I play golf with it on. That said, I also own a solar Orient which is faultless.

    Any watch from one of the big names that falls into your price bracket will qualify.

    I was just telling someone today that the Casio MDV106 ($45), Seiko SNK809 ($60ish), and the Seiko SSB031($130) are, IMO, the three best value watches that you can get easily rn.

    Mako, as mentioned above, is a nice upgrade to the MDV 106, and almost certainly still in your budget.
