What watch do you buy if you have only $100 to spend but you want something that will last a lifetime? What is the best place to start for your first new automatic timepiece?

Its heritage, classic design and well respected movement make it the perfect ticket into our wonderful and massively rewarding hobby of watches. No matter if it is the only watch you need for everyday or simply to add some affordable fun to any collection, the SNK809 has got you covered.
