    Watches for around 500-900

    Hi all

    I have a friend thatís looking for a watch within that budget. Any suggestions? I was thinking Hamilton, but canít think of many brands other than that. Possibly Stowa?

    All suggestions welcome.

    Cheers

    Can't go wrong with a Seiko, plenty of choice from dress watches to divers etc.

    Glycine Airman.

    Laco aswell from me.

    Could get a discount and add a couple of hundred to go to Longines.

    Oris ProPilot is about £150 over your budget but you should be able to get it for £900.

    Or Smith Everest, which I'm wearing as I write this. I decided against the Oris as it's too big for me, but lovely watch.

    Longines Conquest V.H.P. 41mm Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch Blue Dial.

    £780 RRP I think and quite nice IMO.

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    Hamilton, Seiko, Longines...

    Personally I'd go for Seikos...plenty of choice and superb value-for-money.

    This is nice. Iíll show it to him.

    Also told him about Sinn and the 556 A has been on my radar. Think it looks great on rubber.

    Thanks a lot for all the suggestions!

    He could pick up a second hand Grand Seiko quartz for that budget.

    I would certainly point him to Eddie's Site.
    At the top end of the budget the Dreadnought Voyager is hard to beat as a GMT.
    Chronograph? Paolo Fanton's A-13A. Nothing better in the price range, imho.
    Dive watch? Back to Eddie - PRS82.

    Thanks all. I went through the posts with him today and he made a list. So he has a lot of research to do over the weekend! Will update with what he went for.

    Would be this for me as well. Thinking about selling a few of my collection to purchase a SPB077.
