FWIW all of the above I got for less than $30 each.
Oh, the other "Mark" with numbers behind his name.

Seiko makes some fine watches at a reasonable price.

What is cheap? My weekend watch is an Armatron that I bought in the 80s. It's been on ten or so patrols (subs). I probably paid $30, and I didn't consider that cheap at the time. My most expensive watch is an Eco- that I paid about $380 I think. I'm sure that's cheap to some here...seems expensive to me.
