Stainless beater under $35?

Here are the requirements:

  • Standard lugs.
  • Not plastic or coated metal.
  • At least 50m WR. 
  • Case size not smaller than 37mm.
  • 50mm maximum lug to lug. 
  • No leather. 
  • No loud ticking. 
  • $35 that is new and available. 
  • Not a stupid brand like fake Pagani or Mysterious Code. (Other brands that have spent more than half a second thinking of a name are probably fine.)

Thanks!

Thanks. I can afford 50 but I'd like something good I can recommend to others when they ask for something ultra cheap. Plus I wouldn't mind a good beater myself. 

I came across this which looks better in video than the stock photos. And it's around 30 bucks. https://youtu.be/JJUITcDujBA  

For ultra cheap, the F-91W can't be beat at $17.

Maybe it would be too obvious, but maybe something from the MTP series by Casio?

Sounds like what you look for. But I might be wrong.

(Update: Case is chromed plastic... That's a miss from me 😬)

Funny that the MTP with black dial and roman numerals was the first ever watch I got. But I either lost it or threw it out (back in the ignorance age around watches) 😭

If I could point out Technos, there are a long line of daily beaters that are fully stainless steel... But they are generally sold starting at 300 reais (60 dollars), and this current model is at a discount, going for 200 reais (37 dollars) but maybe it is because of Black Friday, and importing fees might raise it up by a bunch...

Personally it is hard to find a model around your specifications that would go for under 35 dollars, watches go more expensive where I live. 70-60 dollars and under would be easier, but 35 dollars is a tall order.

Most of the mtp series should be steel I think. I found that one in the video above and it's not terrible. No lume or light which is a shame.

That's a nice one. But yeah the challenge was finding something really cheap.
