Lend me your expertise! I am looking for a 40mm everyday watch that can pass for all occasions. From the ocean/pool to the office to a formal dinner. I am attempting to cut my collection down to just a few watches. Here is the criteria:
40mm or under
13mm thick or under
Common lug width
200m water resistance
Screw down crown
Sapphire crystal (preferably AR coated)
Good lume (preferably C3 and lumed bezel)
Bezel- can be either dive, countdown, or GMT
Movement- auto with good accuracy +-10sec
Budget- $2,000 or under. Cheaper the better.
I know this may be impossible to find something that meets this criteria, but I figured I would try. This watch does not have to be a “DIVE” watch. If it meets all the requirements, I don’t care what category it is labeled under. Since it is going to be worn in most occasions, I would prefer a clean and simple dial while keeping legibility. I know if I went with no bezel I could find some great options, but a bezel is important to my everyday life.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
