I'm trying to find a white dialed watch that's highly visible, but not too antiseptic.
I've seen white dials on Hamiltons and Longines, but the accompanying gold or silver markers don't always offer the best contrast. Railroad watches are black & white legible, but aesthetically, just a little overspecialized. Early military dials (often cream colored with faded tritium numerals) come close to what I'm looking for, but I'd prefer a watch that isn't showing it's age quite so much.
Ideally, I'd like a white (or off-white) dial with numerals and minute hash marks. I would be happy with stick markers, numerals, or a combination, just so long as they don't disappear in subdued light.
Manual, automatic, or tuning fork movement with a date function. Stainless steel case preferred, but gold can be nice. Any respected brand would be fine. I'm open to any interesting alternatives.
One critical specification is diameter -- 32mm to 36mm. For me, 34mm is the "sweet spot" and I rarely wear anything bigger than 36mm. Smaller diameters is a big reason I stalk vintage watches.
I'd really appreciate suggestions as to what I might hunt for. I've spun through a LOT of listings and haven't found anything like I've described. I'm not sure why, but white dials seem far less common than silver, gold, and black.
White dials is one thing that is really absent from my collection. Lots of black, lots of silver. I'd like to shift the balance with a new addition.
Thanks for the help!
