    Does this unicorn dress watch exist?

    Hello everyone,

    I want a dress watch. I need suggestions as I'm a little out of touch. Here are my issues:


    I only want one sized between 35mm-37mm. NO bigger.
    It must NOT have a date function.
    Manual or auto.
    NO quartz.
    I'm sorry but I don't want a Seiko.
    No black dial.
    White or silver is my choice.
    Three hand or sub second.
    Vintage is fine but it must be in NOS or mint condition.
    Under $1,500

    I'm looking for a clean dressy watch. I'm not really looking for a GADA. My challenge has been a non date watch in the size I want. Older vintage watches are closer to 33mm in size. Modern watches seem to be 38mm or larger.

    Does what I'm looking for exist?

    As an aside, is there a gold tone (plated, PVD) that actually lasts? It doesn't have to be gold toned. It's just an option.


    Thanks!

    Can you live with 34mm? If so, it's not too hard to find a nice vintage no-date Rolex Oyster Perpetual for that amount.

    Nomos Tangente and probably others in their lineup. If you are open to Grand Seiko, I believe many are 37mm. Too bad quartz are out of question as that is the obvious choice.

    Stretch your budget to $20K* and you could have the perfect 37mm dress watch

    Nomos Glashutte (might have to get grey market or slightly used for your budget) is first choice.
    Junghans and Stowa would be the second place to look.

    You can pick up a lightly used Nomos Orion for that. Or a new Tangente, Club Stowa Antea KS. I believe the last few are more casual than dress, but definitions are fluid.

    Yeah, that budget might get a Nomos manual, gray market.

    And it might be stretching your size a bit, but Junghans Meister hand-wind. It's 37.7.



    The lugs are short enough that this may work well.
