Thank heavens, the fine fellows at four-chains are quite glad and kind chaps and would be willing to assist you in your future communication endeavors. It would seem you used your trippy dippy code in a situation in which it was not necessary. Oh dear!

You can get a pretty decent functional watch in the $50-$100 range. While one of the best watches around ~$10 is likely a Casio F-91W. Which they only can keep in good quality (except the strap which still is shit) due to the large amount of them they make.

Some cheap chinkshit will likely have worse quality than that. But you might be lucky. There is also the fact that you can not reliably know the quality of a $5-$10 chinkshit watch. While a brand watch needs to have consistent quality or have some sort of warranty to keep their reputation.

I want to get a new watch and replace my G-Shock with something that doesn't stand out so much, without making compromises on functionality. I've been looking at some Seiko analog-digital models since I presume they have the same alarm and digital stopwatch functions as the G-Shock. For example, the Seiko SNJ023P1 would be something I'd be really happy with, but it's not easily obtainable.

Got any recommendations for something similar that I can actually buy?

Has anyone bought a vintage Omega Seamaster/DeVille/Constellation off ebay? I'm looking to get one with a 56x or 75x movement under $500. What should I look out for? How do I not get ripped off?

They should have the same features. Those are the ones most people get depending on how much punishment they will be subject to.

The G-Shock is by far the better watch and is all you will ever need, it'll probably outlive you.

The most common way to get burned is with a frankenwatch or a re-dial. Omega has a database of all their references. It's best to use that and lurk the forums to see good examples of vintage seamasters, constellations, and geneves. I snagged pic related for $230.

Thank heavens, the fine fellows at four-chains are quite glad and kind chaps and would be willing to assist you in your future communication endeavors. It would seem you used your trippy dippy code in a situation in which it was not necessary. Oh dear!

Seiko Sarb is likely the best for a decent and dressy watch. The orients in the same price range are also good, but what about a cheap orient like possibly this:
http://a.co/esSgbG9
or if you like a gold tone (even though I think it's a bit too much for my taste) then this is a good deal atm. http://a.co/81hKaNE

There are also some great Seiko 5s in that price range that are a bit dressy like this one: http://a.co/ifjIWsz or maybe this one with a patterned dial http://a.co/dhPheJu

I would have a look at the cheapest orients and the Seiko 5's

Women need chronographs to assess the financial capacity of their potential mate. Also around here it was revealed that many customers for high end watches were ladies of the night using watches to transfer "currencies" back to their home countries in a manner safer than notes.

Thats a really nice price. I got mine for 40 from ebay, it's about the same on Amazon.

You could build almost this exact watch out of current production Vostok parts. Only this type of Scubadude dial isn't made in black anymore, only blue.

There is however a black 12-6-9 dial in production with the Scubadude, dial model number 634.

I like the look of those.
It's the "Rider's chronograph" Giugiaro reissue, with the dial slanted so that you can read it while holding the handlebars of a bike.
But once again they used a quartz movement that has a 24hr subdial and a date...
I ride a motorcircle, and even though I wouldn't read a watch while riding, I really appreciate the thought behind the watch.
The asking price is just steep for me at the moment, since there are several nice mechanicals I'd want to buy with that money... But this is a limited edition. I'm torn.

That is up to you, I would say anything though. It isn't too flashy, and a lot of people wear steel band watches with a casual look. I think it could go either or, but I personally wouldn't wear it to super formal events.

If you like that look, maybe you'd like the orient palmer. It is what I plan on eventually getting, after I get a few other things first.

I think you have fat wrists. The model came out over 20 years ago too.

You can always take out the lug pins and stick a NATO strap on though. A sensible idea as even though the watch has a battery life extending well over 5 years the stock strap is the weakest component and most likely to snap/break first within a few years if even that.

Nah, the cheap resin bands on the low-end casios have rivets for allowing your wrist to breath.

So they's basically weak points that break with repeated flexing.

Just sharing my retro Casios, sorry about the shit lighting.

Pictured from left to right:

Bought the left two cheaply from some dude on an online sell spot along with some other shit digitals, didn't seem to know what he had. Great condition, the 59CGS-57 in particular is very rare. You can hardly find anything about it, but it's an official model because it's in a magazine from 1980. Not sure if there's a demand for it though, most Casio collectors seems to focus on either G-Shocks or Marlins & Divers.
