handwound watch about £500?
« on: March 31, 2016, 09:15:21 pm »
Any recommendations? I know nothing about watches and have found the Hamilton Khaki and Archimede Deckwatch so far. Looking for something simple and traditional looking, no bling.

many thanks

The Seiko watches are fantastic value in this price range. Archimedes are also okay but the Seiko product is the king in this price range.

Tender do watches for around £500, some of which are hand wound. Keep an eye on the Trestle Shop, as they're often listed there. Unionmade have a few in stock.



They're nothing special mechanically, I think that they use a vintage ETA movement, but mine gets a certain amount of attention when I'm in fancy watch shops. ;D

GS/TP is a new watch brand by William Kroll (the man behind Tender), and these use Miyota movements. The hand wound model is £362.50, but it's a 28 mm case, so might not appeal to anyone other than @Anesthetist!

I didn't realize it was such a small watch. Still really cool, but 28mm is small even for my wrist.
