    just curious... what do people consider the best value ETA based "value" auto watches?

    I actually like Victorinox, Mido, CYMA, Raymond Weil, Stowa

    I believe even invicta has some 2824-2 movements...
    I think Eterna are the best bang for buck as they get blown out for 80% off MSRP on the secondary market. Eterna are the ones who invented the ETA movements as it was their movement division of Eterna watches many years ago. You can snag them pretty cheap.

    I can't speak to the value, but I am really looking at a Mido currently. the commanders and baroncellis are high on my list.

    I really like my Mido Ocean Star Chronometer Si 600! Really solid watch and accurate as fuck. I lose less than half a second a day since day one and I am going on a three years now. A very solid value for a watch of this calibre construction...

    ebay usually has them on blowout. Sometimes Ashford and Jomashop get them but it's becoming less common.

    Bummmp. I've definitely enjoyed my seiko 5 as a daily, but as mentioned above it is too thick to be a dress watch. Looking to pick up another every day watch, but needs to be dressy enough to work with a suit. Around $1500 or so.
    Looking for suggestions. Used tag carrera is currently on the list. Also a seiko pressage. Not sure about tissot, hamilton, rado?
    Doesn't need to be new, but it needs to be in excellent condition.
    if you want to stick with Seiko 5, the 2020 version IMO looks great, too bad they are 40mm, wish they were 36mm or 39mm
    SRPE 51 or 53

    the new Seiko 5 2021 field watches looks amazing too

    also a big fan of the Lorier Falcon

    Even I love Seiko, but I say the Mido is best value .. most Seiko (better one with 6R) are $1500+ now, even most 4R are $500+ may well get a Mido for ~ $1K (or less for some)

    The Original !
