    My Timex Expedition is now somewhere around 7 years old.
    It still stays pretty accurate. I guess what I'm saying is it doesn't take $130 to have a decent watch.
    That said I am jonesing for a Seiko or Citizen in the $150 area.....

    Martines, search for a Seiko 5 model SNK809k2. Alternatively, if you like divers, search for a Seiko mid-size diver. They are 37mm and should suit you well. Ideally, you'll probably find a watch case between 35-39mm across (excluding the crown) will probably suit you best.

    I could recommend the Vostok Komandirskie and the HMT Sona if you like the style

    Both are rather cheap too. But get good straps for them, the stock ones are :censored:

    you might want to check out the Orient Mako or Ray they are a great mix of casual and classy the case size is 41mm in diameter so a little out side the range that dutch man had stated, and the blue one is beautiful :inlove:

    Seiko SXK007 (3rd in Gilatabar's pic). It can be dressed up or down by just changing the strap / bracelet. Same with the Orient Mako or Ray. I think the Orient's are classier therefore dressier.

    I agree about the Seiko 5 line. I own one (of their automatics), and those are a good fit for these criteria.

    This here. I have the SNK809 and I love it. I actually prefer the smaller size(37mm). The only slight drawback is the 18mm lugs, which slightly limits your strap options. There are plenty to choose from, just not as many.
