I've already got a watch so I'd buy Smirnoff, you get a few liters for a ton  

Damn it... I should have known Mr. Bond would be faster...  As to watches... you want a good automatic diver's watch? Vostok Amphibia as mentioned. And it's half your budget, so you can still buy

Probably something like this    Or this   Kev

OK.  You have a budget of 100 quid.  Tight I know.

What would you buy? Pics would be nice :toot:Old or new.

There's a whole heap of vintage stuff (my personal favourites) available for £100 or less ! Out of 100+ watches in my collection, modern and vintage, only 8 cost me more than £100, and only 4 of those have been significantly more than that.

However, to answer the original question, another Orient or G Shock maybe.

With a bit of change lest for a few straps.

Can you still get them new? I have one.....love it. The militar y issue version is rare and nearly identical.

And it's half your budget, so you can still buy a few of those bottles. Recommended service interval for a Vostok is 10 years and I imagine a service is done by dropping one in Vodka  :laugh: Those things don't need servicing.

Buy Russian or Japanese from a Russian or Japanese brand and you'll be fine.

An Omega Buckle.

For a 100 quid?? That's a bargain and I'm not even joking... prices on things like this area a joke though, it's the exact sort of thing I would go Chinese fake with no heavy heart or regret!

Those things are $50 U.S.. I bought some a few years ago for my various Omega straps and I think they were $25 then.

I think you are on to something there. You couldn't go too far wrong with a couple of them.
