  • Automatic watch for less than £100?
  • I’ve always been a fan of nixon. I’m sure they do a few suitable models,

    You can pick them up in snowboarding shops etc.

    I have a couple and they are bloody tough.

    Orient?

    The Rays look good, I’m tempted by the Raven. You can pick them up for about £100 if you look carefully and they’re all built in-house in Japan.

    Edit – the Orient UK website is pants, look at the US version and track down what you want off Amazon or Creation or whoever.

    US Orient clicky linky.

    Aeromatic/tauchmeister are not bad for about £70.

    Ignore the ‘its not really German’ watch snobs, I really like mine.

    If they’re not to your liking I’d second the orient

    Invicta or Seiko?

    Or something else?

    Orient or Seiko, I’d rather have a Japanese watch with a Japanese movement, than a Swiss watch with Japanese insides. Swiss and Swiss, though, that is a different matter.

    Seiko from Creation watches. If you like military style the something like this. Also available in different colours. Alternatively, for a bit over budget a divers watch

    Get a Seiko Orange Monster from Creation. Fantastic for the money (just over budget) if you can stand the colour scheme 🙂

    Very Orange Monster

    Seiko SNK807, available from Amazon for about £60. Look good with the nylon strap but look even better with a tan leather one.

    The Seiko ‘5’ series automatic watches are very good value.

    Which is why one is forming the basis of my Yobokies “Grand Feiko”… 😀

    Nothing other than Seiko worth getting for less than £100.

    The Seiko watches are really hard to beat at this price. This thread got me looking again and think that the Series 5 or the Pilot chronograph pictured below would be my choice(£80 from Creation Watches). Probably would better suit a chunkier brown leather strap with white stitching for more formal occasions or the NATO one mentioned above for everyday use.

    Citizen eco drive bm6400, got one and love it. 106 shekels if you shop round, got cashback on mine too.

    Had a seiko kinetic for about 15 year !! Its as good now as it was when I bought it.
    Absolutely fantastic watches

    Orients are always tempting but I think if it is your main watch a Seiko fits the bill.

    Here is my latest addition

    SNXH71j from creation watches £90 + a bargain strap from watch worx for £6

    At that price I would be thinking Seiko or something special from Yobokies
