    Casual watch - is IWC Aquatimer OK? (or another suggestions <5k)

    Hi guys,
    I have Fortis B-42 cosmonauts Day/Date now as my only watch. It is fine with t-shirt, pub, and so on, but I think it is not that good with casual wear and for work meetings.
    So I want to buy another watch, that I can wear in to a town, bars, meetings; when I wear sneakers-jeans-shirt OR leather shoes-jeans-shirt-blazer(jacket). I am wearing this combos most of the time, so I am able to put some more money into them. I don't want to wear them with suit.

    Now the question - is iwc 3548 (previous version Aquatimer) the appropriate?

    I love the design and everything - but I am not sure about that 12-3 o'clock white dive stripe. I have never had a "dive" watch so I am not sure if it appropriate for my use, I don't know if this watch is more a "tool" watch or "wear" watch, and I just don't want to spend 5k and then look bad or too sporty. BTW can you wear Aquatimers under a shirt sleeve?
    What do you think?

    Or if you know any alternative for my usage, requirements are:
    - under 5k
    - big second
    - steel case
    - steel strap
    - no magnifying glass over a date

    Thanks!

    Can't see any reason why not.
    Kind regards

    That's a sage choice, they also toss in one of the very best bracelets you can buy with that watch
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...

    You should consider stretching the budget a little for the IWC Ingenieur.

    thank you guys, I appreciate. I see that it is not that easy to buy this piece, because it has been discontinued for few years now...
