I've been a lurker for quite some time here. My collection included Omega, Breitling, Citizen, Seiko and some other Russian models too, but now I'm on the lookout for a new one. I have a few wishes and I hope you guys can help me out in making the right choice.
first and foremost I want it to be at least 50mm. I have a 47 right now and that feels VERY petite (Citizen E210). I would like it to be as clean as possible with a bezel as tiny as possible too. The hamilton base jump has a case big enough but a huge bezel!
Also, I really want a sapphire chrystal. I've shattered quite a few mineral glass-chrystals and I feel I need a sapphire chrystal.
I don't mind if it's an automatic or quartz watch.
I have a budget around 775$...
I'd love to hear your suggestions!
PS: if you have a great suggestion that pushes my financial limit, that's fine... I was looking at U-Boat, too. I like the looks of U-boat: very bold yet kinda clean...
PPS: one last remark: no rubber straps or NATO straps. just leather or metal :)
