Still looking for something that checks my boxes and I think I found some old stock that comes close. Tell me what you think.
I found one of these at an oriental shop (online) that checks most of the boxes I've been unsuccessfully searching for:
SS case and band with Sapphire AR crystal
power reserve indicator
white dial (ivory, in this case) with sweep second hand
Simple, uncluttered design (no extra complications)
A kinda negative is the date at the 9 o'clock position rather than the 3 o'clock, but I can live with that.
Are there any better options that check those boxes for $400? I know this is an older design, but I seem to prefer the older ones and can't find any of the newer designs in stock anyway.
