    2 hands with date, under 2k

    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!

    If you don't mind vintage and a little big small for today's standard, I would look for a Universal Geneve White Shadow. Cool micro-rotor movement, quite slim, some models have date.

    Would you consider dropping another hand?

    A one-hander. Meistersinger.

    This would be my top pick, and I own one myself. Another good option would be a Montblanc Heritage.

    Maybe Nomos? It's coming extremely close to your budget limit but worth it without going too vintage.

    He asked for no second hand. All those Nomos models have small seconds.

    The least expensive Nomos with date and sapphire caseback, is the Club model 733...it's over $2500. And finding discounts is non-trivial.
