A change in careers has me out on the road more often than the past and I'm I'd like to get an inexpensive diver to take along - leaving my beloved Explorer 1 at home in the safe. Parameters below - any ideas?
- $500 or less
- 40mm or less - 39mm or less preferred for my girly 6.5" wrists. The 36mm Explorer is perfect for me.
- Mechanical preferred, but could overlook quartz if the package was perfect otherwise
- Date: not necessary, but a 6 o'clock date would be awesome
- Not a fan of the cyclops
- I've always been a big fan of Seiko - but they seem to insist on massive proportions. But their rugged reputation/image is a big ++ for this need.
The Baltic Aquascaphe is as close that I've been able to find...but just seems too dressy for my current needs.
