    The rear but unique Citizen NY0040 series are great divers for under $200. Especially when considering its heritage with Italian Navy Frogmen. Its a great stylistic alternative to the more expensive “Marathon” brand military divers.

    Really a nice comparison. As I am pretty much a fan of chinese watches I do want to add some watches where you really get a good value for low price. Seagull watches. They have a quite long history and are the oldest chinese watch manufacturing compang. The watches I reccommend all have a ST-2130 movement, which is a very similar design than the well known ETA 2824-2. That means 28.800 beats and a solid and accurate design. I think they want to get into several new markets and that is why prices are still low. Personally I own the 819.613 dress watch and I am still amazed about the outstanding quality you can see and feel at this nice timepiece.
    I think I should mention that I am not related to seagull company or get any advantage by showing these links, just a big fan.
    The last one in the list below is unfortunately a bit higher in price (315$), but I think it is one of the most interesting designs:

    black dial dress watch

    european style

    Sporty/military style
