    Question Automatic watch for women

    Hi everybody, I'm new here and this is my first post.
    I need recommendations by all of you, watch experts.
    So I'm looking for a good watch for myself. I'm a girl and petite but I like large face watches.
    I hope to find these things in my new watch:
    Automatic
    Large dial (+-40mm)
    Kinda masculine looking
    I prefer stainless steel but am also open to leather, depends on the look.
    By a real watch maker, swiss made.
    Budget $700-$800.
    I might not find everything with my budget but please give me some advice.
    Finally, I'm ready to spend some 'serious' money. I would not wear this watch everyday, only on weekends and special occasions.
    Thank you all!

    Try the Hamilton Intra-matic 38. Masculine but with class. ETA 2892 automatic movement--very nice in this price range. You can dress it any way you like with the strap.

    I'm sure Rick meant to type Intra matic, not ultra. A good suggestion and Hamilton has quite a few watches that meet your criteria and might consider (as does Tissot, though they have less autos). The one caution with the Intra is that it doesn't have a second hand and, if this is your first mechanical watch you may very much want something where you can enjoy the smooth sweep.

    My wife wears a Rado Diastar. It fits your criterion, kindof large, kindof masculine, more or less in your budget, can be worn on bracelet or strap.

    I just purchased this Hamilton for my girlfriend as her first watch! It's on the smaller side at 37mm and not overly masculine, but I absolutely love it! It comes with 3 quick change bands for versatility and you should be able to find it within your budget online. It's the Hamilton H37425111 in case you're interested.

    One other maker that puts a fair bit of emphasis on women's and unisex designs is Frédérique Constant (I think they're run by a husband and wife actually). The "Persuasion" model is 40mm but I think the oval geometry of the dial looks more elegant than many women's models.

    Wow...some great choices here. I favor that Rado Diastar. The case is made of tungsten carbide and has a color that is stunning in person but does not photograph well at all.
