I am thinking no second hand option. Sometimes I feel the seconds hands a bit unnecessary for my daily use (dress or business casual, but no divers since I have thin wrist). But I have to have a date option on the dial for my watch.
Do we have any recommendations under 2k? I am leaning to used condition, and less than 40mm in diameter. I prefer a simpler dial (arabic numbers or baton style markers both welcome, just not the roman numbers for me). If there has to be second hands, I prefer it to be sub dial, I have been looking at the nomos, they are great watches but the lugs are a bit too long for my taste.
For the movement, I prefer hand-wound since they normally are better looking to my eyes than the rotor covered automatic option. If they are well-decorated shown with a clear back case, it will be a enjoyable plus.
Pictures are welcome. Thanks!
