Just get an SKX007. Not dressy enough for you, get a Sea Urchin.

check out these links!

affordablewristtime

https://yeomanseiko.com/

personally imo watches like SNZG13/15, SKX007/009, timex, casio, citizen, orient watches are good entry levels ~250-300.

the seiko 5 series has a wide range of models that could catch your eye!


edit:
oops, just saw your budget of ~200 - you can get an orient bambino (dress watch) or if you're into a diver, maybe the SNZF15 (or its variants) or even the Orient Ray divers for around that price as well!
Search carousell and you can find good deals on some of these watches.
People here recommend j.llee but there are other watch sellers on there as well!

when it comes to Omega, which watch is more worth while to buy?

Speedmaster?
Seamaster?

btw, looking to watch as a dailybeater, don't intend to flip

Of these 2 I will pick the Speedmaster.

But worthwhile or not depends on individual..

According to the 1 guru here, u can skip all loser watches like Seiko Tudor etc... go for Rolex or PP.
But I say orient is your best bet
Tudor also loser meh. Knn costed me $4k three years ago.

Someone once said that the Speedy looks like a Swatch Watch...

I wanted to ask why not the BB58? Then I realised that you already have a Tudor.

Christ...how thick can you be.

I had already clarified my position, that my advice is not for the dai low like pwillie and gaoxing84 and you perhaps, who obviously have a lot of money to burn on worthless buys.

My advice is for those average man in the street watch noobs who come in here asking whether they should buy a $6k Tudor as it's quite substantial sum for them, you see. And the dai lows are giving them watch advice from a millionaire's point of view while these impressionable noobs are eagerly lapping it up. That is highly irresponsible of these dai lows.

These noobs who can't make up their minds over a $6k watch are the people who need to worry about the value of their watch purchases. They don't seem like the type who would be able to tank a job loss or job switch to Grab driving. Their $6k purchase could quickly become $2k or $1k when it's time to dump. Just like what pre-owned Tudor prices were the past decade until Rolex decided to pump new RRPs up a notch.

Oh, that is assuming the pre-owned dealers are willing to take in Tudor at that point in time.
Sadly i am one of those average man in the steet watch noob who came in looking for an answer. After asking many questions and getting ridiculed, i purchased a tudor 3 years ago which is still serving me well. Dont think its waste of money. Wasted more $ buying other stuff instead.

Until now, still cant afford a rolex. Maybe save for another 10 years to get a datejust. By that time everyone here already uncles.
