Where do you guys buy your watches?

I'm looking for a versitle watch that produces good value for the money. I'm not a watch guy or trying to impress anyone but myself so it needs to be under 2k.

I used the jomashop website for my last two watches. They have options at every price point. For reference I spent $475 and $180 on them.

Thank you. A mido caught my eye and was well under budget. Can't wait to see it in person.

This is my old Olympic 300m Pro divers watch recently rejuvenated. The original black rubber strap has worn away and has been replaced with a silver band. It has spent a lot of time under the sea and these days only used as a daily drive as I have two 20atm G-Shocks for when the urge to put my head underwater occurs. I once had a watch which was more than 30atm's and had a gas release button on the side - a bit ridiculous when you think about it as at 30atm's and below the watch would be still working fine and I wouldn't. Always had a hankering for a Seiko Divers but don't much like the new designs.
followup: I cleaned the glass with Meguiars Scratch X20 which removed the small scratches. Top of the bezel will always show the battle scars. The raised bezel is very easy to turn when wearing diving gloves, a thing that attracted me to this watch. Can't remember what watches we had back in the 1960's when I was diving for the Navy, but I do remember Moray wetsuits (like cardboard) and dual Heinke tanks with a primitive regulator.

Orient has some really nice entry level automatic watches.  They make their movements in-house in Japan.  I believe they are majority owned by Seiko.

You can find them for 1/3 off MSRP regularly.  The second and third ones pasted in below I bought new for under $200.  I'm not sure how they can even make an automatic watch at that price point.

Not impressive by any means but I snagged a Timex Weekender Chronograph and 5 NATO straps to switch around.  I always heard how good of a value these were so I decided to add one to the collection and see how I like it.  Plus my first watch when I was a kid was a Timex with the glowing face and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world.  Little nostalgia here.
