Seiko 5 or one of the Orients I would say, most of the rest are awful! Still each to their own!

Suggestions please.

How about Junghans?
Depends on your idea of "appreciable proportion"?

Auto with Date

Chrono (I would like this for myself)

safe to say £25 is not an appreciable proportion of either of those! (nice watches though)
