Although I get your point, that is not just any old quartz watch.

 

The Meca-quartz Fliegerchronograph with a JLC cal. 631.  Pretty rare piece you got there...  Is it yours?

Yes it is mine, and these are my photos. One of my favorite pieces.

And you're correct, not just any old quartz watch.  :wink:

Wear it in the best it health.  It really is an exceptional piece.

My fellow watch lovers, I come seeking opinions. I'm looking into getting my first dive watch and I'm looking for good ideas. I'm not sure if I should start with a 200M, 300M or go full out on a 1000M watch. I see some well reviewed watches like this 200M Stuhrling Aquadiver for $60 or this 300M Citizen Eco-Drive dive watch for around $200. But at the same price point of the Citizen I could get a 1000M Wenger AquaGraph as well. Do any of you dive? What's a great buy in the sub-$200 range?

You can never go wrong with Citizen... I have their Ecozilla and it's a kick-ass watch whether you are using it for diving or not.

I also have a couple of Deep Blue watches:

 

http://www.shophq.com/Offer/Default.aspx?OfferCode=627-249&icid=OnAirToday-_-Watch%20Celebration%20Featuring%20Once%20Onlys-_-627-249&cm_re=OnAirToday-_-Watch%20Celebration%20Featuring%20Once%20Onlys-_-627-249 (I have the white one... you could probably find these under $200 used on eBay or other boards)

 

http://www.watchfreeks.com/44-finished-sale-trade-threads/31878-f-s-deep-blue-juggernaut-sold-please-delete.html (couldn't find it in the Deep Blue website...)

 

and just received (today actually) this one:

 

 

For some reason I love big watches ;) (even though I'm not really a diver...)

 

But again, I'd probably choose a Citizen Eco-drive (or deep blue watches) because of their Lume, good service/warranty/etc, over the others you submitted. ;)

 

 

Good luck!

I knew there'd be a Watch-Fi...

OK, so I thought to myself this morning: I wonder what the Parker 51 of vintage watches would be? That is, what's a good, easy-to-find, budget vintage watch that is just generally awesome and practical.

Any thoughts?

A Rolex Submariner never goes out of style. There are plenty on the used market. A few other choices are an Omega Speedmaster (NASA gave these to Astronauts to wear to the moon), Omega Constellation (Pie Pan is a timeless classic). These are all Stainless Steel watches so they won't break the bank.

THE budget dive watch is the Seiko SKX007.  It's an automatic.  You could also check out the Seiko Black and Orange Monsters.  If you don't care about that then the ones you listed are fine choices.  For a bit more money I (personally) really like the Tissot PRS200.

 

Except for the most extreme diving, 200m is more than sufficient.

Define 'budget'.

 

AudioArby made some great suggestions but many might consider them too dear - especially vintage Subs - particularly if you are using the Parker 51 as a reference.  What more comes to mind is a vintage Omega Seamaster - maybe something with a cal. 30t2 (not a 30t2rg - much too rare).

 

The nice thing about something like a cal 30t2 is that is valuable enough to take care of but no so valuable or rare that you worry about the originality of it all.  What I mean to say is, one can get a really sharp looking one with a replacement dial, case and hands that look vintage but are in nearly NOS shape for little money.

The Seiko watches mentioned are excellent automatic dive watches. I have the Orange Monster. Some say the "Monsters" (SKX781) are the best value automatic dive watches under $500.

Give us a clue what price bracket you see as 'budget' and there will be people much more knowledgeable than me giving you plenty of tip-top advice.
