    I like mostly 45-48mm. I prefer autos. And I like unique designs. I'm a fan of the Aragon Chargers, Hydraumatics, Time Machines, Rotators and both Aragon and Invicta divers. I also have gotten into some of the Star Wars/Marvel ones since I'm a total nerd.

    My biggest must haves are a larger size and a decent automatic movement.

    As far as price point, most of my current collection is probably no more than $200-$300 apiece. I'd like to stay in that range.

    I agree with this Orient selection as well. Have a few myself. For the price point, classic sizes, quality built, and in-house developed auto movements...very hard to beat!!!

Go with suggestions!

    Thanks in advance.
