It's hard to believe that our previous incarnation of this list lacked models by Rolex and Omega, but that has been corrected by the inclusion of both the Omega Speedmaster Professional and the Rolex Submariner. These represent the finest examples of a racing chronograph and a dive watch available on the market, and the Omega's involvement in the NASA space program is a testament to its watch's durability and reliability. Why the Submariner over the Daytona? Well, good luck finding a new Daytona on the market.
To make room for these new additions, we said goodbye to some lesser quartz models like the Timex Ironman, as well as some automatic models that had a few unexpected drawbacks, like the high maintenance costs of the Mont Blanc. We were still able to find an excellent budget option for anyone looking to invest in an automatic model with the Orient Mako XL. This comes from a brand that has plenty of history in its native Japan, and that's gaining notoriety among horology enthusiasts for its commitment to in-house movement manufacture and design elements that are derivative of the classics without feeling like ripoffs or homage pieces.
Omega Seamaster Ultra Light Designed to maximize comfort no matter the bend in your wrist, this model features a push-in crown that hides inside the case when you don't need it, streamlining its edges. It's incredibly lightweight, with a combination of titanium and aluminum, and a comfortable rubber strap. Inside, it boasts the company's Master-Chronometer-rated caliber 8928 movement, with a 72-hour power reserve and resistance to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. omegawatches.com
