    GF wants to buy me a watch and Iím Stumped (< $600), need some ideas

    Hey Folks,

    Girlfriend mentioned yesterday she is looking to purchase me a watch as a gift and asked for recs. For once in my life I couldnít think of anything (I really struggle with settling on something). The challenge here is I am looking < $600 range and Iím not super familiar with all the smaller micros and am definitely missing out. I am looking for a diver and for reference I loved the Baltic Aquascapje. However, my wrist is small, and those lugs are long and straight otherwise it would be perfect. I need to stick to the 38-40 mm. Currently I have a Speedmaster, an SKX007 that is 30 min fast, and a SARG009. I want something fun (quartz or auto is fine) to wear during the summer months. Not too picky other than I donít love the vintage look (although I guess itís relative as I like the Baltic), blue (the as esthetics of the Baltic blue are perfect) or black, 40 mm or less with modest lugs, on steel, and not a total homage. I owned Steinhart and Obris Morgan in the past. Any ideas????

    Pic from WW for reference

    Yema make some great watches and thier superman heritige might be a good option

    The autos are out of reach (if buying new) but can pick up the quartz (pictured) for just over half your budget.

    Christopher ward also have a nice selection of retro style divers

    Check out the Squale 20 Atmos in green. They have it in stock at Gnomon.

    You can get Christopher Ward C60 MK3 38mm in nearly new condition at your price range. You can also get a Glycine Combat 6 at 36mm for less than $300 though it is not a diver.

    The YEMA def has me thinking. Didnít realize they had a quartz. CW just doesnít do it for me. Seeing them on the For Sales Forum, they just donít look enticing enough

    On your travels look in on Scurfa; both the Bell Diver and the Diver One.
