Anyone have good brands for a beater? Preferably <$800. Was thinking about getting the Tissot PRX Quartz for about $400.

In this range it’s hard to beat Seiko. I posted my new SRPE05 earlier today.

It’s an Amphibian SE 420454S special edition with a 24 hour movement/dial. I have the rubber and metal straps. Not my picture but same watch (it’s in a drawer somewhere). Purchased 8/2016.

Depends how much of a beater you want. I have a quartz Luminox on a rubber strap for when my watch will actually get beat up. SKX is a step up from there. Then Sinn.

Microbrand guy here:
Sub $800 I always recommend micros.
NTH
Zelos
Lorier
Helm
Halios
All of these make cool watches that compare favorably, especially from a quality / value perspective, to Seiko and other big brands.
If you like that Tissot style the Direnzo DRZ-4 Mondial is still in stock and will just slide in under $800. His stuff is solid and I love his designs.

That’s really surprising about your Halios experience.
I’ve seen lots of issues with Seiko divers on things that simply shouldn’t happen, eg mis-aligned bezels, but overall still love the brand.

Seiko or Hamilton

If I am getting C4 or C5 at same salary (CTC) which one should I choose? Considering I have lower %age of variable and quarterly payout of variable.

Hello all!
I'm 26 but I'm into watches since forever and so I would like to buy a JLC Reverso (ref. 254.84.40) as first luxury watch. I'm saving and I'm near to have the necessary amount but it's a bit hard for me to spend all this money for it. Nobody in my family has ever done that so I grew up with the idea that you shouldn't spend so much for a watch. Anyone with similar experiences? How did you get past your mental barriers (if any) to by your first luxury watch?
