    Green Watches?

    I'm in the mood for a green watch, something with a green dial, maybe green bezel. Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on something reasonably cheap but reasonably good?

    There's a rolex that is a bit out of my price range by several factors of ten, https://www.ebay.com/p/13026510258

    And then there's this thing, where the price can't be beat, but I have a feeling you get exactly what you expect for a 20 dollar Chinese submariner knockoff, https://www.gearbest.com/mechanical-...63#goodsDetail

    Does anything know of anything in a price point around 50-100 bucks that is similar to these? By no means does it need to be automatic. Ideally a kelly green, rather than olive green.

    More than $100 but there are a couple of those new Seiko 5 Sports in different shades of green that look good to me. One is more of an emerald green with gold accents, the other is more of a teal. You’ll have to google them, I don’t have the mode numbers off the top of my head.

    Some models of the new 5s are still hard to source tho. Looks like they are trickling slowly into the American market.

      I know Orient has several styles with green dials. Not sure if they have a dive watch style one or not. They usually go for anywhere from $100-250 when on sale.

      I've owned a few Orient watches for several years now and have been very pleased. I think both of mine came from longislandwatch.com.

      If you're wanting to stay closer to $50, Timex or something similar would probably be your best bet.

        not many vibrant green watches in that price range. Seiko 5 has some, Tissell makes a great one. I love my Borealis Bull Shark but its more of an olive green.

        this is a cool site to find seiko variants...

          They do, the Mako 3 comes in green. And I think it also make come with a black dial/green bezel. https://www.jomashop.com/orient-mako...a0004e19b.html

          I think it looks pretty sharp for the price! Love Orient watches for that reason in general.

            I found an Invicta for just a hair under 50 bucks if I wanted to trigger watch people.

              Not to highjack the thread, but I’d be interested in green watch recommendations under $500.

                Borealis dropped a neat field watch with a green variant. Nodus has some green options too.

                  I’m always a fan of the Accutron Spaceview, which is a totally different animal, but definitely green.

                    I have a green Shinola Runwell that I never wear. It’s a great watch, but I always felt like the green stood out too much for me.

                    However, I’ve always loved the green Seiko Alpinist.

                      Geckota and Steinhart are in that range: https://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/d...reen-2010.html

                        Is it the 41mm or the 47mm (which can make a difference in terms of standing out)...assume it's not for sale?

                          Tisell in S. Korea make a pretty good watch. They have homages to both the Rolex submariner "Hulk" for a reasonable price (around $230 I believe) with the reliable Miyota automatic movement.

                            It’s the 41mm. Everything is for sale for the right price...shoot me a PM if you want to make an offer.

                              I have a green Seiko that I love. Armogan makes a green Spirit of St. Louis as well.

                              This is the Seiko. There's also a green dial Seiko Presage that is gorgeous.
