Sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel and SW200 movement. Came on a mesh bracelet but I changed it out to a custom Bracelet. All of this watch for under $500. Post your best bang for your buck here. Even if it is borderline over $500 that's okay. We aren't breaking any laws. Let's see what type of deal you for a great piece in this general price range. Here's mine.

That is a great looking watch. It has a real 70's vibe to it and the heavy links on the bracelet really play into that. The case shape looks like the style adopted around 1974-75, at least in the Hamilton brand that I'm familiar with. It must be a fairly large watch, too. It looks like the dial is set very deep into the case.

You're exactly right about the dial. It's quite deep within the case actually. Great eye and nice catch of a subtle but huge detail. Yes it wears quite large as its stated to be 45mm case but due to the vintage cushion style case with very little curve to the lugs it wears larger to that of a 46mm to 47mm size watch which I personally like a lot. Whats amazing about this piece is that it's almost a regular price $1000 watch that can be had right now until the 21st I believe for $360! Unbelievable for what you get. A ceramic bezel, sapphire crystal and a SW200 Swiss Movement. One of my favorite pieces in my small collection. It's a blast to wear too. Just looks great on the wrist and an instant classic.

TechnoMarine Blackreef, 3H with yellow details and mesh band, ETA movement. For some reason I can't post it here.
I bought it for around $500 online 3 years ago, a steep discount from nearly $2000 back then. Excellent diving watch but I dinged the sapphire crystal.

I'm a big Deep Blue fan.

I've got two of them. The first was my my Sun Diver III which I purchased off the Deep Blue website. I think I paid $249 for it. I call that "bang for the buck" to the nth degree:
