IMHO, Seiko (and Grand Seiko) watches provide some of the best value at almost every price point.
Have had an SKX007 for a couple of years and love it. Great when you don't want to wear something pricey or showy, and all around great tool watches.
Also have a Grand Seiko hi beat GMT SBJ005 - incredible finishing - I can stare at the dial all day long.
