About to start a new job in October - currently have a Suunto Core All Black that I love but I will be in court 5 days a week and think that maybe I should start carrying something less tactical looking and more professional looking. Open to any advice/reviews on what's the best quality for the money.

 

Thanks!

If you're trying to save $ but want a watch that's quality all around I would absolutely go with a Seiko SKX007. There are a few model variants, some weigh a rubber strap others with a steel bracelet. This watch is rugged and also has that classic diver look. In my opinion it fits every situation!

Casio has a new G-STEEL line. Might be worth looking into. Looks like a really nice line of watches.

Tudor, Ball Watch Company, and TAG Heuer all make great watches that fit your bill. The Tudor Black Bay is really nice, and available on eBay. Check em out...

The Seiko dive watches are nice, and won't break the bank.  If you're looking less expensive, the Timex Weekender is a clean, inexpensive watch, and they have a chronograph version as well.

Budget isn't a consideration right now just looking for best value for the money

A "professional looking" watch and a budget isn't an issue but want the best value?  Ok, good luck with those parameters.  I suggest google or try to be this guy...

Victorinox Inox might be a good option.

I own the G-Steel, Timex and Seiko.I put a Miltat super oyster bracelet on my 007 and I now wear it 80 percent of the time. Looks great and its tough.

Seiko SARB033 (black dial). Automatic, 100m WR, Sapphire crystal, under $400. Or you could go with the SARB017 (green dial), which has 200m WR, Sapphire cystal, and under $500.
