    Advice needed: Dressy watch to wear to work

    Need some inspiration from the fine folks here on WUS. I wish to get a dress-y watch that I can wear on a regular basis in the office. Seriously thinking of the Tissot Visodate but wonder if there's any other watches I should consider in that price range?

    Pics of course are mandatory

    Thanks in advance!

    For a very classic look, I think that a great option is the hamilton intramatic. For a more modernized take on a dress watch, jomashop and amazon both have the frederique constant classics automatic for under 600 dollars.

    For dress watches I've been wearing my two Omegas (Constellation calendar and Seamaster De Ville Quartz). And vintage dress watches can be had at good prices, bargains really, as compared to new. But that's just me. I like cheap/new and affordable/vintage.

    Cheapskate that I am I'd rather spend more money on an old Seamaster/Connie than equivalent money on a new... anything.

    I seem to be that way about lots of things... *looks at display case full of old cameras*

    That said, if you want affordable, dressy, automatic and daily wear, Orient have lots of neat things on offer.

    $163 CAD on Amazon


    $150 CAD on Amazon


    $143 CAD on Amazon


    $217 CAD on Amazon w/ power reserve...


    And at those prices you don't care if you smack it on a door, or a filing cabinet, or it gets mangled when you're unjamming the printer. My Orient Ray now goes to the office a lot too... :)

    The viso date is a good choice But if you aren't set on Swiss. Japanese made Seiko such as:

    The sarb 066, very dressy

    SARX015

    SARB033

    SARG003 for a sportier dress watch

    SARG009 sporty dress watch

    All pictures courtesy of Seiya Japan. These JDM Seikos are within your price range and represent under stated classy dress watch and sporty dress watch design and are powered by the 6R15 movement, which has 50 hrs power reserve and can headwind and hack.

    Nothing says dressy and flashy like a rose gold watch.

    My current favorites, with a big nod towards the much less expensive Hamilton:
