The 8926OB Pro Diver has got to be the least expensive and most accurate automatic Submariner homage watch we’ve ever had the pleasure of using. It’s solid, looks great on your wrist, versatile (matches well with leather or rubber straps), and has 200m water resistance. All for only $79.
It’s lightweight, sturdy, dependable, and comes with a screw-down crown that prevents the watch from accidentally popping open. The strap is rugged and looks great. You can even change the date and time without removing the watch from your wrist. At $119, what’s not to like?
Based solely on its looks, Seiko’s Le Grand Sport certainly doesn’t look like it costs $128. It might be something that genius billionaire playboy philanthropists would wear. The watch isn’t merely pretty, however. It’s reliable. Provided that you give it enough sunlight.
The $225 Spirit of St. Louis is a quartz watch with great build quality. It also comes with a 12-hour chronograph. We’re just smitten with how it looks: the impeccable domed crystal, the gorgeous suede leather strap – everything here looks exquisite.
Looking for a handsome, water-resistant, 12-hour 1/20th-of-a-second chronograph? It doesn’t get better than Seiko’s SNDC33 dial watch. This black variant looks particularly sharp with a suit. You might not believe it costs only $95.
