Get a Seiko SKJ007 and a few straps. Very versatile. I have one with an interchangeable arabic / english day date. Always gets comments.

However, I always suggest to friends getting into watches that a vintage Tag Heuer (or better still Heuer branded but these sometimes come at a premium now) diver i.e. Heuer 1000 will run you less than 400quid. They're quite accessible since Leo DiCaprio wore one on The Wolf of Wall Street.

Trent where have you seen these for £400?

Watch forums mainly. I have a Spirotechnique that cost about 900quid but they are harder to get your hands on. Watch only, of course.

US eBay usually has a wealth of them. This is a good example albeit a little over 500quid.

The Tudor is nice, looks good on the wrist too, do you mind saying how much you payed for it?

Beckham could send the brand one of two ways.
Seeming as he's now associated with H&M, it seems an odd choice for Tudor.

Beckham stopped working with h&m a year ago, Tudor makes sense for both of them I think

I almost didn't buy a Tudor because of Beckham. I associate Beckham with cheap aftershave.

I didn't say he still works for them, he's forever associated with them. Like giggs and quarn and Southgate with ballboy boots.
