    Advice: White Dials under $700

    Hello All... I tried fighting the urge of wanting another watch this year because I just got three watches earlier this year (Hamilton, Omega, Tissot).. but I canít fight the urge anymore. I noticed Iím missing a casual (not so sporty or dressy) White Dialed Watch.

    Like everyone else in the forum... Iím a huge fan of the Rolex OP39 White. This watch is next on my list in the next 2-4 years... not a wise decision to get right now. However in the meantime, Iím looking for the following:

    - White, Cream, Silver ish dial
    - Automatic/Manual, no quartz
    - No Divers! For some reason Iím totally over them. Noticed theyíre not my style.
    - Needs Lume! (Unfortunately, takes out Seiko Sarx series which Iím sad about)
    - Bracelet, also looks good in leather.
    - under $700ish (can go more, prefer go less)
    - Prefer applied indices, donít want Arabic numerals on Watch, I have too many of those.
    - 38mm to 40mm diameter
    - prefer domed crystal but hard to find in this price range.
    - No complications besides date, no date is fine too.
    - WR minimum of 100m

    Right now.. it looks like it will be the Seiko SARB035. I am concerned it might wear too thick because I tend to like watches on the thinner side. Before I make this decision I wanted to see what other options are there that meets this criteria!

    Thanks all! Not my photos:

    Tons of threads on this topic for suggestions.

    Did you look at Mido, Victorinox, Revue Thommen, for other suggestions? All make nice white dialed watches.

    The Seiko you posted is very nice.

    Nodus Contrail is the first that popped into my mind for this. Seems to check all of the boxes for you

    39mm case
    Domed sapphire crystal

    My suggestion is your first pick. Thickness is not bad overall. If you bumped it a bit comsider a pre-owned Nomos club.

    - Bracelet, also looks good in leather. - check, the bracelet is amazing!
    - under $700ish (can go more, prefer go less) - check, $399
    - Prefer applied indices, don’t want Arabic numerals on Watch, I have too many of those. - I BELIEVE they are applied. Batons, not numerals
