The 45 Best automatics under 500

Post by Ocean » Mon May 23, 2022 7:51 pm

I’m not particularly a fan of Teddy but there’s some great watches in that list.

Let’s be honest: not everyone can spend thousands of dollars on every new watch purchase, especially someone who might just be getting into the watch collecting hobby or perhaps looking to spend $1,000 or so to assemble his or her first three-watch collection. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options out there in the sub-$500 watch category, with choices from the usual suspects like Seiko, Citizen, Swatch, Timex, and Orient, as well as from several microbrands that offer worthwhile options in that narrow price range as well. Here we have compiled a selection of the best automatic watches under $500 that deserve to be on your radar — and perhaps even in your collection.

A very interesting list, especially the Presages..strange there weren't any Steinharts on the list, though..
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Teddy is a dealer so no Steinhart. I believe everything listed he sells.
