    White-dialed dress watches < $2,000

    Hi all. I'm looking for a white-dialed dress watch under $2,000. By dress, I generally mean it shouldn't have a rotatable bezel. My only real requirements are that it have a white or other light-colored face, and that it have 20mm lugs (maybe 22mm) for plenty of strap changing.

    Models I've considered so far include the quartz Omega Aqua Terra (although I'm reluctant to pay $2,000 for a quartz watch) and the Stowa Marine (although I know I can't wait 3 months to get one without going crazy).

    Any other suggestions? Pics would help!

    A Seiko Phoenix Brightz SAGQ001 with the excellent cal. 8L35 (used in the Seiko Marine Master 300m) ...

    The case has a 41mm diameter. Had seen it for a little under $2000 on the Rakuten website.

    Christopher Ward has a very nice C.O.S.C for under a grand.

    I'm fond of my Tag Heuer Twin Time for formal wear. On a black croc strap with a pearl face and no bezel markings, it's appropriate for dress occasions, but it's also got a GMT complication and the accompanying numbers on the flange to make it something more than completely plain. It's just within your budget from a reputable non-AD seller.

    Try Oris and Mido. Here is the Oris Artix:

    And this is the Mido Baroncelli III chronometer:

    I like these models, but really either brand will have several options for you to look at.

    I've always been fond of this watch, but I think I'm going to have to start looking closer at it. It ticks almost all of the boxes...I only wish the lug width was 20mm rather than 19mm.
