well at your price point, I think the Orient Bambino is going to be pretty tough to beat. You can get it for about ~250 at Bencoolen, or about ~170 on carousell (grey dealer aka authentic but no manufacturer's warranty).

Personally I like the SNZG15/13 too but it doesn't seem to fit your dress watch requirement.

Do make a trip down to bencoolen and explore the shops. Even city chain etc. You never know what might catch your eye!



edit: straps very easy to change once you get the tools! Can easily source from taobao

Hi guys, sorry for the noob question but I was thinking of buying my first proper watch for work (and maybe casual) purposes - a simple dress watch to wear to work everyday (or almost everyday) would be ideal.

Was thinking of buying one where the straps can be changed easily to fit the occasion. Initially thought of getting a Daniel Wellington but i've read that it's not that great of a watch and most of the cost is for the marketing.

Assuming a budget of 100+ to 200+ dollars, any recommendations (in terms of brands and also where to get them) in light of the above? Or know of any shops (central-ish) that I can go and make enquiries?

Thanks so much, have a good week everyone. Cheers.
Orient bambino.
If too old looking to you.
Seiko skx 007 or sea urchin (Google this)

It depends on your lifestyle.

But seiko divers are more all rounder.

Buy watch must match your lifestyle.

The new Orient with small second is a nice contender

Will go with the zenith if u do not care about resale

For Rolex can get better models in future when budget permits



Been looking for a simple blue dial stainless steel watch for daily wear. Manage to narrow down the above which is around my budget. But cant make up my mind, could bros here share some opinions thks.

2nd and 4th nice for a starting dress watch. The neutral tone compatible with many colour straps.



Cream dial is always my favourite.

Just realize there is wording “DEFY” on the dial which I felt is a spoiler

The champagne dial adds more to the vintage look. I bought one and it looks really nice.
