205?

Okay, question for the wristwatch glitterati. I want to pay about $50 for a watch. I want an analog winder that will be durable, that must be able to withstand say up to ten feet of submersion. I would prefer something that won't turn my wrist green.


Doable?

Wal Mart has a bunch of cheaper Autos, no manual mechanical as far as I know, but they do have autos in the 60$ range!

Nice looking ones too. Mostly skeletonized movements....nice though

Spring for a Seiko auto- it'll be worth a few more bucks. Lots of online sources from Singapore and such- You can also get a hell of a deal at places like bluedial.com


Shit- $50 isn't a watch, it's a shopping cart full of empties ready to be turned in for the nickel deposit.

I thought that would be a stretch.

What would the entry level cost be for such a creature?

Asian autos are good stuff, and for 250 yankee dollah

If willing to spend abuot $100.00, by far, the Invicta Diver, here's a pic but go to Invicta's watch group website and perouse the Automatic Divers...

$97.00 average. Automatic....Citizen Movement, 100M resistant. Very Rolex Submariner looking.....

Okay, "Automatic" that means it has the little rotor in it.



On the cheaper automatics do they use the rotor in conjunction with a quartz movement? Can I wind these as well if necessary?


Seiko is on the radar. Invicta Diver looks gooood. I have some reading to do. I'm going to miss those moths in my wallet.

Thanks guys.

Most automatic movements can also be hand wound- but not all. If it's your daily wear piece, then it's not an issue. They've got a built in reserve of about 2 days or so. No need to wind it at all if you've got it on your wrist most of the time.

If it's got the auto movement, then it's not a quartz. Seiko's have a long history of being damned decent autos at an awesome price. $150 or so for a diver that will easily last you ten years. Citizen is another decent option with lots of fans.

Go to Watchuseek and check the Chinese watch forum. You may find some help there. Reportedly, the Chinese are making some good mechanical watches these days.

http://forums.watchuseek.com/forumdisplay.php?f=72 You'll have to register to post, of course.

Edit: Those $60-$80 WalMart skeleton autos are Armitron brand. The movements are by Sea Gull, who have been making watches for over 50 years.

The Citizen is a great travel watch... Time zones, alarms, etc. But the steel band was crap..
This band is actually rubber.. Looks like leather... Makes it a great everywhere watch... Diving, riding, meetings..

Bought the Omega in 1992... Hopefully my son will like it when he's old enough to appreciate it..



I'm thinking one of these next...
