    Advices needed for a nice dress watch

    Hi guys,

    I am new to the forum and I need some suggestion on a nice dress watch. I can spend up to 3000$ (CAN).

    Right now I am leaning towards Edox Men's 72012 357N NIN Les Bémonts Hand Winding Stainless Steel Watch. I like the fact that it is really good looking thin hand winding watch made by a great company. I also like the fact that you don't see a lot of Edox in Canada.



    I would like to have your suggestions before my final decision.

    (sorry for my english, I am a french canadian)

    I was thinking if I should help you or not, since you are french canadian but...

    Just kidding - welcome to WUS!

    If you are really willing to spend these $3k on a single dress watch, few things will be as good as a brand new, manufacture Zenith

    Depending on wrist size, you could also go to NOMOS - they make some sweeet dress watches (also in-house movements).

    The alternative to this would be to go closer to $1,000 and buy yourself some ETA-inside with good looks, and use the remaining money for another (pre-owned) watch. One possible good quality dress for under 1k is this one:

    I would say - stick around and read all you can find about "dress watches"

    Wow, I would crawl over broken glass to get at that Zenith. What a beautiful, classic look.

    You will not see a lot of Edox in Europe and in the US as well.
    Kind regards

    First of all - congratulations. But you know what they say - if you don't post pictures, it didn't happen...
