I am looking into buying a new watch, my current collection has 3 watches. I’d like a mechanical movement , dial size shouldn’t be too big (36-39mm) under a $100 please suggest a good watch ✌️
Try looking at Orient watches. Though by $100 I assume your talking USD here?
You might want to try looking at Chinese watches. Try San Martin and Baltany.
I second @TalkingDugong on Orient. You can also try Seiko SNK809.
Good suggestions from @TalkingDugong and @divefroggy. Lots of Orient models for around $100 USD, including the Bambino, one of their most popular models. The SNK809 is also a great option, but there are lots of older Seiko 5 models still available for around $100 USD, including the SNKL23, often referred to as the mini or budget SARB.
I have noticed that San Martin prices have been creeping up on AliExpress, so you might consider Merkur, Starking, or Berny on AliExpress. They all offer an automatic for around $100 USD.
Thanks! Orient watches are more expensive where I live, but with luck I can find a few good ones also regarding the Chinese watches, the san martins have upped their prices quite a bit. Baltany is a good option, and now with the Ali express sale going on, I’ll definitely try getting my hands on one
I’m into more affordable timepieces, preferably mechanical hand-wounds
