That model would have been $150 or less new. Now it's an old quartz watch with scratches. Pass.
Buy This instead.
Just got an Orient Ray II for my birthday off Amazon.
I really like it.
For example this Orient (Black) was 177$ a few days ago, but now it's 155$. Let's say there's a discount, how much of a discount Amazon offers normally on special days?
Would strongly suggest not buying an Invicta. Invicta makes cheap, poorly made watches. You can find Seikos online for pretty cheap. Jomashop would be a good place to look. I would buy an Orient before an Invicta. They're much better watches. Both jomashop and Amazon sell Orient divers for less than $150. Perhaps something like this.
Also, chronographs can be automatic. Solar watches aren't automatics, but they're also not quite the same as traditional quartz watches. There's nothing wrong with them, nor is there anything wrong with quartz. Don't be so quick to cast judgment. It sounds like she was doing her best to help you. Not everyone is a watch expert. Perhaps it wasn't her department. Perhaps she was new. Not understanding exactly what you wanted does not make her stupid.
I'd look on watchrecon.com (or the app) for a blue Orient ray 2. You might fiind one bellow $100. Or you could stretch a bit and buy one new for about $130.. It's very versatile. You can wear it with a sui or casualy or even sporty.. It's a much better watch than any seiko 5 but if you must have a seiko than my pick would be the snkl41 or the black snkl43. It's elegant enough am can be dressed up or down easily. I also like its case with both brushed and polished surfaces..
Edit: there is also the snk381 that has numerals..
There are also some orients from the tristar line (with blue dials and bracelets)
Hi, I'm looking for a good first everyday watch that would be fine in situations such as interviews. My budget is about 200$ (can extend by a bit) and it'd be great if some suggestions are below budget. Some features I'd like:
I've gone through the guide and I have two main ideas: Get the Orient Ray II (Blue) or get the Casio MDV106.
Thanks in advance!
An Orient Ray might look pretty smart with a Navy suit.
I'd personally go Orient. They have an in-house automatic movement and some really beautiful watches. In my opinion they're the absolute nicest watches you can get for usually under $200. Everyone says they feel like they're worth twice that much. I am constantly getting complements on mine.
Here's the one I wear.
and here's just a general amazon search. Theres some nice black ones as well. [link]
Really not a fan of Hamilton. I'm not sure Why, they just don't seem to have that same elegance as most Swiss watches. Maybe it's the American influence.
The skx is a hugely iconic watch that is about as versatile as you Can get. Obviously it isn't a "luxury" brand though, which may have some influence on your decision.
A few more you might want to look at are:
•Orient blue Ray 2 (which I own and absolutely love, it's my daily beater and is perfect for me. Can't fault it.)
•Christopher Ward's Trident (I have this one as well but it's still sitting in the box a month later so I can't really give you my opinion on it)
•Longines hydroconquest(doesn't have a ceramic bezel when most other watches at that price point do)
•Tissot seasomething powermatic 1000.
•Glycine Combat Sub.
