    They like there watches on here that's for sure, I do but my budget is never more than £200.

    If you like it and can afford it have it.

    And just to improve your holiday its snowing and hail up north, been throw it down all week.

    The price of those is such that you'd probably be better off with a Seiko.

    But a little of what you fancy...............

    Quite right save your money and buy either a Seiko or Casio.

    Seiko 007 or 009 are lovely! 

    Althoufh, I have a 2005/2006 (can’t remember) Omega Seamaster 300 - they really are lovely :) perhaps look for a second hand one from a reputable source? Could pick one up for less than £2k.

    Got a citizen eco drive great watch look good, water proof, even tells the time and less that £200. but I got a tag as a birthday present to myself (as no one else would bother) because its a nice watch the only trouble is I use it most of the time.

    So if you like something and can afford it then get it.

    You can get a mint 2nd hand Rolex Sub with date bubble and papers from a Main dealer on the continent for Under £4K. And when you want to sell it you’ll get more than £4K back home and you’ll sell it easy. That way you are not actually spending any money.

    I bought a 007J for my 40th Earlier this year. It was about £170.00 from Creation Watches.

    Certina are also owned by the SWATCH group as are Omega.

    Hi

    If in no hurry to commit to a purchase I would suggest time spent on a couple of watch forums (Rolex Forums, TZ-UK Forum etc.) will provide information on many watches and models, as well as potential for great saving on 'enthuisiatic' owners 'flipping' watches.

    Love the longines watches! Embarrassed to say my day to day watch is a cheap Curren thing. And a Casio digital for work! I have a few different ones for dress, but nothing above £30. Some watches just look the part, and I do think a watch can really set off an outfit.  Think my most expensive one is a Timex Indiglo which reminds me needs a new battery :lol: 

     

    great choice on the Longines :yes:

    Bought 2 Micky mouse Rolex’s from a street vendor in Toronto several years ago for about £50 . Gave one to my son and kept the other one . They were apparently made in Thailand and lasted for years . I still have mine all it needs is a battery .

    Sorry mate but I can’t be supporting fake watches. Loads of lovely cheap watches available which are not copy’s.

    I have a seiko that my wife , then girlfriend bought me in 1997 . Watch has never had a service and keeps time as long as I remember to keep it in my pocket when I’m not wearing it .As it’s an automatic and relays on movement
