Wristwatch Recommendations

Any of you wristwatch men?

How does a Tauchmeister fare?

What would we recommend under about $300?

Any decent names in automatic swiss movement?

Slightly above your budget but well worth it the Tissot T-touch:

i have one of those and it’s a great watch though i wish it had a backlight. still it’s so good for the money i would buy another and live without the backlight if i lost it. that link has a killer price for titanium.

as for automatic watches they can be found for $300 but you may do better shopping for something used.

I have a tissot seastar 1000, its a little over your price range. You might be able to find one used for around there. The seastar 660 is just as nice though, and is a little cheaper.

The only thing with the 660 is its a little smaller (but the 1000 is huge, I actually like the 660 size better) and its not automatic. Still a very nice watch, though.

I have to say, I’ve owned a G-shock for years. Great watch, battery still hasn’t died, basically bullet-proof. EXCEPT the wristband. I believe I’m on my fourth or fifth one now. The fuckers just won’t last. Has anyone found a solution to this? I was thinking of a flat black metal one, but I can’t find one…anywhere.

Dunhill look to be fine watches. Check them out, I just did a little research.
