I have a smart watch, garmin vivoactive. I really want a nice watch for occasions though. Ideally one of these

The Tag Heuer Formula 1 James Hunt edition. Long sold out now though, and the chances of getting one are slim to none. And I can't afford it for a while.

A pipe dream.

What's P&Bs advice? I have £500 to spend on a watch (ideally less because it's a gift), what out there is half decent and will last and which makers do I avoid?

 

 

 

Eta, it's for a male.

As long as he's not built like a stick insect I'd go for this:

It's specified by a bloke from Yorkshire who has been selling watches on the internet for years - I have two of his pieces - and they are terrific value for money. This one uses a Swiss automatic movement and the case and bracelet are German.  It has a sapphire crystal, as do both of my watches, and are scratch-free.  It retails for £340 and, to me, seems a bargain.  I'd put a rubber strap on it because I don't like bracelets but that's a matter of personal choice.

I used to have the same watch...

...wrote a car off and took it straight to the scrappies - in my haste, I forgot to take the watch out of the glove compartment where I had put it because it needed a new battery.

So thanks for rescuing it for me, I'll PM my address, you can send it on and we'll say no more?

Absolute beauty of a watch. You'd be surprised, I thought they'd all disappear but seen this & the nato strap version in a couple of shops - Goldsmiths in Braehead & one of the jewellers on Princes St in Edinburgh, can't remember its name.

Was looking at a few Seiko. What's your thoughts on Bulova prescionist range, any good?

Don't know anything about them, for your budget I would stick to Seiko, they do some nice dive watches, and dress watches as well (as worn by Djokovic)
