    Automatic with second-hand subdial

    Hi,

    Been lurking for a while and am now looking for my first automatic - been a quartz guy up until now, and I'm hoping you all can help me find the perfect watch.

    I'm looking for a dressy watch, and love the slightly unusual look of the second hand in a subdial. Stowa has some very nice watches in my price range, but they all seem to be manual wind

    Can anyone recommend a similar watch with an automatic movement? Budget is in the 500 euro range, +/-. Ideally looking for something not too huge - I love my bigger sporty watches, but for something a bit dressier I think too big can be overkill.

    Any and all recommendations are most welcome!

    Thanks!

    The one that comes to mind is the Oris Artelier Small Seconds---a little out of your price range when new, but definitely in your range when used. It has terrific fit and finish and a great value.

    The seconds sub dial is a retro look. Almost all watches looked that way a couple decades ago. If you like that look, there are many cool vintage watches that have the same appearance.

    Definitely check out the Bernhardt Officer. Beautiful watch with Swiss movement.

    Look at the Hamilton Jazzmaster. I bought my father one with a silver dial and small seconds at the 6 that's real nice and reasonably priced.

    You must check the Tissot HERITAGE 2008 (T025.408.16.032.00)

    It's an automatic officially certified chronometer, and it's quite cheap.

    Not bad, but that Tissot inscription is terrible looking.
