Of all affordable (less than $60) watches (both modern and vintage) you know, which one is your absolute favorite?

Please, if possible, attach a picture to your answer and we will have a fun thread looking at affordable goodies.

Not a russian, but this seagull ST-5. The green dial is incredible in real life, I have yet to see anything that can top its deep emerald color.

EDIT: sorry for the poor picture, will take one during daylight tomorrow ;)

DDThe majority of mine were under the $60 mark. In fact I consider that solidly mid range in our hobby. It can get you in the humbler Vostok Precision range with the Volna and Almaz, will get you just about every Signal and two tone Kirovskie, w with the exception of the red and green one, and gets you into Luch and Poljot Ultrathin as well as Deluxe automatic territory. Perhaps not the very best but with a bit of luck you're there.

To me the bargain basement is the $10-30 range, with plenty of Dirskies, Fibbers and the somewhat lesser dress watches.
