Hi all,

Been a while since I've been on here. Wanted to pop in and ask for your help on finding a new watch to fit my needs, or more rather, my wants. You all are chalked full of great information, so I thought, who better to ask.

My criteria are:

  1. Under $1000 USD.
  2. Automatic.
  3. Round or roundish case, 42-47mm.
  4. Arabic numerals.
  5. Easy to read.
  6. Changeable strap.
  7. Prefer day, date.
  8. Casual, sporty.
Here are some examples of watches I like. Please let me know of other options you may know of that fit the criteria:
First up, this Sea-gull shows the simple, clean look I want. I've not seen one in person though so I'm not sure how nice it really looks. Anyone have experience with this watch?


I also like the clean look of this Tissot:

And this one, although it does not have Arabic numerals, it is sporty and somewhat clean looking:


Now, as much as I like these, I'm not really a fan of the small seconds dial. I prefer a big, sweepin second hand.

Here is one more favorite of mine, I just really dig the looks, style & detail of this watch. Its a little busy but the detail is superb:


Thanks for any help all!

Hamilton all day long.

In my opinion one of the best values for the dollar on the market. Sapphire crystals, solid quality ETA movements, excellent history.

Your post is confusing, you say you want something simple and clean, show us the Seagull, which is all of the that, and then show us 3 Chronographs which are anything but clean and simple??

If you want a reasonably priced watch (under $400) Arabic numerals, sapphire crystal, 100m WR and a great in-house movement ( Seiko 6R15 hacks, hand winds, 50 hour power reserve), get the Seiko Sarg009.

It's the poor man's Rolex Explorer. Mine runs a consistent +4 seconds a day.
