i have needed a sports watch for a decade now but i keep on buying dressy/ elegant watches. i do have a couple of cartier santos watches one in an octagon/ royal oak shape and another regular one in two tone. these are my only watches on a bracelet despite living in a hot and humid climate. so far i'm kinda liking the yachtmaster I.
overall my criteria:
40 mm (i have smaller/ average wrists so if 42mm it has to sit well on it)
w/ bracelet (must look better w/ bracelet than on a strap)
not so tool/ instrument watch looking (sinn, sea dweller, submariner)
non genta designs (royal oak, nautilus, overseas, ingeneur)
prefer grey/ white face over black but won't mind black if there's no white/grey on an awesome watch
