So I'm now in the Seiko club with my Daini 5Actus. So this is supposed to be an entry level JDM sport watch, but for 1975 it has a steel case and a mineral crystal, when most entry Swiss-shit (and especially slavshit) of the time were plated brass and acrylic.

Not really. The 52xx was the last new movement Daini designed before the quartz revolution and should be considered comparable to the ETA 2892-A2, Omega 56x/75x and Rolex 3035. In the 1990s Seiko brought back the 52xx as the 4s15 and ultimately moved it to Credor.

Be aware that the 5206 and 5245/5246 have instant day/date change at midnight but are vulnerable to quick-set damage if the quick-set is used between 9pm and 3am. The movements are otherwise quite reliable.

The 5256 variant, while lacking the instant date change, had adjustment labor lavished on it by Daini as it was their last run of high-end autos. My 52 King Seiko Special is scary accurate as a result.

Also, make sure you don't confuse the Suwa Seikosha produced 56xx for it, however. They are totally unrelated designs.

Best value for a reliable manual wind vintage Seiko is a Lord Marvel 5740C. It's a 36,000bph manual winding design produced for a long time in the late 1960s and 1970s by Suwa Seikosha. No date complication and it doesn't hack, but as a result is extremely reliable.

If you are in Southern Ontario take it to Shane Ede in Toronto.

As for general tips, you need to Google the shit out of the movement and model you are interested in and learn enough to judge condition, originality and price for yourself.

How many watches do you guys wear?

I recently upgraded from 2 to 4 (1 on each arm both outwards, to 2 on each arm 1 inwards and the other outwards). It's made it much more convenient to check the time no matter what my hands are occupied with. I've considered getting a 3rd one for each wrist for that rare time both watch faces are parallel to my eyes but I think I'm going to hold off until it really starts to bother me and I find a couple watches I want.

Hidden crowns give me an erection. So it's got that going for it.
It's in need of a thorough cleaning, that's for sure. There's also quite a nasty chip in the case there.
Replacing crystals is not particularly difficult, but you do need a press for it. So keep that in mind.
If you are able to get a record of service history, it'd be worth considering a service if it's not had one for a while.
But for $35 it's not a bad grab.
Assuming it works.

If we were to list watches worth considering in that price range, it's hit the bump limit on the thread.

beautiful and tempting.. BUT

too pricey for a plexi glass and their cheaper models are under 38mm

i understand that using plexiglass is more practical than manufacturing a domed sapphire, but there's no way i'll spend more than 700 euros for a scratch-prone watch

Yesterday I went shitter hunting on Ebay and found some guy selling Invicta 8926OB for $9.99. I thought to myself 'holy shit this is a bargain even for Invicta' and saw that there were 25 sold in the last hour and only four remaining. So I ordered one and hence found out that my credit card stopped being valid this month (holy fuck what a coincidence) and decided to cancel the transaction. And after that, the guy deleted the ad and now my order cancelation is in Ebay limbo.
