    Help....Automatic with a blue dial...

    .....for £3-400 quid? Steel and something that can be dressed up or down a bit so a diver/flieger or some such I guess.....massively broad I know! My step sister wants to buy one for her husband and itís not my area at all, my brain immediately said PRS3 or Seiko but are there any other micro brands or anything I should be looking at?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ben

    New release: Orient Mako 3 Limited Edition with Blue Mother of Pearl/Coral Dial.



    The dial really pops between deep blue and a lovely purple shade.

    Check Amazon.co.uk if interested - about £250.00 delivered.
