Here’s another watch I would consider if I were looking for a decent watch for under $500.
As most watch aficionados will agree, a classic watch should have an automatic or manual wind movement and this Hamilton is powered by an ever reliable ETA 2824 Swiss automatic movement. They come in a good sized, 42 mm stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, black luminous dial and genuine leather strap.
At a retail price of $360.00, these watches tick all the right boxes for me.
If we want something that looks a little sportier, the Hamilton Khaki Scuba is something I would seriously consider.
Similar in size to the Hamilton Khaki, this watch also comes with a decent Swiss ETA movement, albeit the 2834 (as opposed to the more popular 2824).
At $430.00, this is another nice watch to consider.
