Bang on the £125 new a couple of sales ago. Definitely a favourite:

New, under £100.   Second hand £110

Most accurate timepiece I own. Haven't had to adjust it apart from daylight savings, weighs nothing, gets as wet as any of my divers and hasn't died, goes with pretty much anything, lume lasts fo

Most accurate timepiece I own.

Haven't had to adjust it apart from daylight savings, weighs nothing, gets as wet as any of my divers and hasn't died, goes with pretty much anything, lume lasts forever, fits under a cuff, won't get stolen, legible as hell and comfy.

probably my 7t32 which is mint and boxed with papers from 1996 i got a bargain. and my Great blue with box and papers which was on the money. But bargain of the lot has to go to the Pulsar dual time chrono with all the functions of a t32 and dating to about 2001 in very good nick for 28 quid.

Brand New would be the Starking AM0184SS11 with in house 28,800 movement (Shenzhen Jingrui SK1813-S) cost a whopping £36, have a few watches (orient bambino as an example) that i could have chosen under £125, but pound for pound this has to been best value and also a style that I really like.

Second hand is a harder one, can't decide between the Orient Symphony  FER2700CW0 (cal-48743) which I got for £60

Orient Symphony  FER2700CW0 (Cal-48743)

or the Grovana 2094.9132 (Ronda 5030.D) which cost £69, both watches were near perfect for being used. If anything, the Grovana was probably the biggest saver money wise, but I like them both, so it's hard to pick one.

I'm a big chrono fan, so I'm going with the Grovana - like the red chrono second hand, and the black running seconds.  On my similar chronos though, I always wish the running seconds had a bit of lume, especially on the autos, so you know they are running when you check them in the dark - I swear if / when I have my Gucci 7750 serviced, I'm going to get the running second hand lumed on the tip ...

pic or it didn't happen - not the best bargain, the best timepiece you have at the price point!  sounds like your  '96 7t32?

Not sure mate I bought it on a recent trip to Amsterdam, was €108 which I think was about £96. Small jewellery shop just off Dam square, I will see if I can find the address.

Most of my collection are under £125 anyway, so I'll just pick a couple of recent examples, starting with a brand new TW Steel at £114.99 bought towards the end of last year:

And my most recent used Fat Face, at a bargain £35.00:
