    "Dressiest" Waveceptors?

    Hi guys, I've recently come up short in my search for an affordable automatic with specific criteria. So I've switched my search to kill two birds with one stone instead - I was wondering if there were any solar-atomic Waveceptors out there that would be good for office wear, yet be nice and clean enough for the occasional formal occasion? Perhaps something with no numbers on the dial, a clean silver case and bracelet, with the option for a leather strap swap in? LED light would be a nice bonus. $150-175 max.

    I think one of the LCW-M100D, specifically the LCW-M100D-1A3jf. It's low 200s but has what you want. I had an LCW-M150TD and it works great for casual and with a suit. It has an LED, which is decent, the digital screen isn't too big or obvious so it works well with a suit. I am not sure if the M100D will take a strap, I know my 150TD did not. The north american market wave ceptors are not very good looking in my opinion. The European and Japanesse ones are much better, and a bit more expensive. Perhaps you can find a used one for much cheaper I know I lost about 40% when I sold my LCW-M150TD. There is an all analog model with no lume, but its titanium, and cost about 400.

    Thanks, that looks a touch nicer than the WVA-M630D-1AJF I found (that has gray buttons).

    The model I pictured is from the lineage line which are a tad better looking.

    Current wave ceptor models
    WAVE CEPTOR WATCH -

    Current Lineage models
    LINEAGE -

    Citizen and Seiko also have some good solar/radio-controlled models, but I think Casio has the best bang for buck.

    Thanks. I originally overlooked the Lineage line due to higher pricing but it looks like a few of them can be had for under $200.

    One or two of the Oceanus range possibly? also GIEZ if you can find them now.

    Thanks. Already have a pretty sublime Giez but it's not quite clean enough. The Oceanus line's way up there in price.. Speaking of price, for around $30-40 more, you can move from a Lineage to a Citizen AT (solar atomic with sapphire glass).. So that might make more sense! At least some of the Waveceptors are below $100.

    The cheaper wave captors are definitely not very good looking for business casual/business attire.

    Definitely. Even the WVA-M630D (one of the nicer Waveceptors) isn't as nice as the Lineage models. The local Costco is selling the CB0010-53L at $217 USD, might as well just grab that since the Lineage models are in that range.

    I like my Lineage, a tad busy with the numbers and cities but at least it doesn't have a digital display. Thin, with solar, multiband and tough movement, think I paid around $200 from Japan a few years ago.
