So, basically, what you are saying is that the watch would have been $350 if not for the "hippie tax"

These Tutima's have the Coin-Edge style bezels. I think they look pretty good because the crown isn't bulbous like the Hamilton posted earlier where the crown makes it look feminine. This style bezel seems to be popular for Aviation-Style watches as most of the ones I've seen are.

The hamilton is about 42mm

Everyone
Throw out some recs for a beater watch
Auto preferred but not necessary
Ideally $250ish but up to $500

I think for that price you're going to be looking at Orient for an auto.

I have 3, the bracelet clasp is the cheapest feeling part but for their price they can't be beat. I would get an Orient over an Invicta, Stuhrling or Fashion Label watch every time.

I feel pretty dumb that did not already know this, but I just checked the serial number of my DateJust and it is from 1984!

That explains why the crystal is so tall, it's acrylic instead of sapphire!

I like it, as I'm a big fan of most Hammy's, but I'm not a fan of the onion styled crown... never have been.

I agree. I think its because Tutima has that style of bezel down really well. Its the obly watch I can think of that I would honestly wear with that style.

Also agree with this. For the price you really can't do much better; in house movement etc. But if it were me, id pony up the couple extra for a Seiko 5.
