My 1st watch I bought was a the small citizen when I was 18 then a couple years later a fossil or 2 still have one then kinda went away from watches for many years until the past few years .. Like previously mentioned it becomes a weird addiction lol.. my Tissot’s are nice .. absolutely loving my Hamilton my 3 year old grandson always touches it and I tell him
It’s his one day down the road.. I’m already looking around for my next watch I’ve been eying a Luminox limited edition bronze

Good point Luke. I am thinking something in the 5 to 6 hundred dollar Range I do lean towards the diver style for sure.

Another option in that price range, that looks similar to the Hamilton, would be a Glycine Combat Sub. You can typically pick them up for well under $500 (some models are less than $400) from gray market sellers like Ashford. I believe that Costco stocks them occasionally as well.

If you like the Rolex Submariner design, I'd definitely recommend Squale. Gnomon and Long Island Watch are the two dealers that carry the brand.

In that price range, you can't go wrong with either a King Turtle or King Samurai from Seiko. You can easily find both NIB on eBay for around $400, even less if the watch is on a strap instead of a bracelet.

Man, I screwed the pooch when Costco had the glycine’s on a nato for $239. I had finally decided to go buy one. I walked in and they were gone. I won’t make that mistake again

Man I was checking out watches and ran across this .. really liking it https://us.alpinawatches.com/products/al-525lgg4tv6
Well made watches. The AL-525 movement in that is on a Sellita SW200 base, which Alpina then replaces the oscillating weight and does some additional finishing on. Very common movement, but because of that they are easily serviceable. Mechanically, a very sound and well built watch.
