    Help! 38mm Quartz Field Watch

    Evening all.

    Can anyone recommend me a half decent (but not expensive) 38mm quartz field watch?

    This is the kind of thing I'm looking for in regards movement / dial - but I'd really rather 38 to 40. And WR isn't that important either, I'd rather save a few quid as it'll never go near water.

    Thank you! :)

    You could do a lot worse than a Timex (Scout, Archive or MKI). Lots of choice, not expensive and usually 40mm. Some have steel cases rather than coated brass (nothing wrong with brass at this price point). The MKIs can be had with aluminium cases if you fancy. All can be 'loud' tickers (relatively speaking) but the steel cased ones are no different in this respect than any other quartz.

    I don't quite dig buying non-solar quartz watches these days, so first thought, Seiko SNE095:



    Second thought, Citizen BM8180-03E:



    Owned both (still own the Seiko in a way ), can't complain about either, the Citizen felt a bit more solid in hand.

    A Seiko SBCA001 ought to be ideal if you can find one.
