$500 what would you buy

Recommended Posts

I've got $500 USD/£385...

If I gave that to you and it's all you had to spend on a watch, maximum limit, what would that watch be? All goes, this is your watch not mine, what do you buy?

This thread should hopefully fill up with interesting contenders for the $500 watch and already there have been some great watches shown. I am really at a loss for making a firm choice - I prefer to blow in the wind and get hooked on different watches when I see them and can afford them on my tight budget.:)

...or at least I would if I didn't already have one. 

I was just going to say the same!

(Sorry for the lack of pictures, will try to remedy when I can be arsed :teethsmile: )

 

This didn't quite come in on the budget (swap $ for £ and we're pretty much there!) but well worth every penny in finish, quality, spec & looks IMHO....

My head says "Small seconds cocktail time", but my heart knows I'd blow it on another sports watch. Probably a samurai, I like the hands.

One of these...Seiko 6139-6012 to refurb. They can be had for around the £350-400 mark. This one belonged to my best friend, Michael, (sadly no longer with us) and I put a new crystal in it for his brother who now wears it all the time. Like my Pogue, he was given this one for his 21st back in 1975.

Seiko 6139-6012

I think I've decided what to do with my $500. I've wanted a baby blue Aqualung Soxa for a long long time, it's due.

I'll commission the build.
