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
