    My Christmas watch search. what would you buy for $600 or less?

    Its that time of year...I feel the need to buy myself something. I'd prefer to spend more but I wont cause I'm cheap like that. So I'm looking for a fun/funky/chunky/vintagy diver in the 42-46 mm range and a non-black dial for under that price. I have my eye on a couple and am hoping in particular for a blue faced Sea Snake to come up for sale, but if not I'd love to hear what you guys are looking at.

    So what are you getting yourselves for Christmas? Anyone else looking for the same thing I am? Anyone have opinions on Benarus and/or the sea snake?

    Send me the money and I'll send you a watch of my choice

    I'm sorry I can't recommend something cos of the tax thing , I tried converting to $ but then I've gotta take VAT into account for anything I'd recommend over here, so just send me the money and I'll sort you out

    I've got a Gerlach Otago coming in, well under your budget.Otago_b_03.jpg

    Dunno if Chip still has any of his divers left, but the Aevig Huldra is a nice looking piece that might suit your tastes:Orange_OB_Huldra.jpg

    Lately I've been liking the Glycine Combat 11's that keep popping up on the sales fora. If I could score a Zixen DSR-500 for that price I'd be all over it.
