    Best diver under 600(ish)€ suggestions

    Hi fine folks,
    due to my selling-spree i ran short of watches. I wanted to buy a Sumo, but i'm not 100% sure anymore. I want :
    - 3 hands
    - date
    - rotating timer bezel
    - solid
    I prefer the TC HAQ option, but i was not able to find one within the monetary boundries i have limited myself to. So, auto or HAQ. Also there is no need to "stretch" the budget, since i am "unemployed" for the moment. I am looking forward to your suggestions.
    Kind regards,
    Ben

    (ps : this wil be a beater, so i like em rugged, not "flimsy", and plssssssss, NO INVICTA's!)

    Under 600 hands down the Helberg CH8.

    Happened to just list one as I have a second coming in. Mine doesn't have date though, but can be had on his website. They are very well built and very beefy. I'm sure it will take anything you can throw at it. I don't endorse too many, especially in that range but these ones I most definitely do.

    You know for not a lot more than that you could get a used quartz Seamaster. They aren't HAQ, but they tend to be pretty accurate (mine has gained 5 secs since it had a battery change in December 2013)

    I've got a stainless version, but Roland appears only to have black right now, but I'm sure he can accomodate if you email him.

    Hefty watch

    Seiko have some rugged diver on budget.. the solar one even though not TC HAQ seem to be pretty accurate.. mine is +5sec/month and other have stated got better accuracy within a couple of seconds a month.. you could get it on black , but mine is orange.. and while we are at it i also throw the standard SKX007 and my fav monster if you decided on auto..
    all abut 42 or 42.5mm
