    Dress watch with printed dial?

    I'm intriuged by the idea. What else is out there besides the Junghans Max Bill? Is there a search term for such dials?

    You might try searching for Arabic or Roman numerals. These a very commonly made as printed dials-- like pocket watch dials.

    Cartier with Roman numerals is the first one to come to my mind and a popular one.

    What’s your budget, ideal size and preferred color? Do you like printed stick markers, roman or Arabic? I ask because there are a lot of them out there. I’ve been ruling them out for the past few months, simply because I’m looking for applied markers on my next dress watch. I might be able to point you to a few if you can narrow it down a bit.

    I'm pretty sure sector dials are printed.

    I couldn't have answered that when I posted this thread, but examining some of the replies, I can give it a shot.

    I asked about a dress watch, but what I really want is a suit watch (think Men's Warehouse, not GQ). I want something that's nice, but not ostentatious--not even ostentatiously simple.

    The best printed examples I've seen of that are the Max Bill and vintage IWC sector watches I've only just discovered. But I'm really up for anything a) boring, b) under 40mm, and c) nice on a leather strap. No sports, diving, etc.

    Printed watch would compete with traditional boring watches like a vintage Seamaster or vintage DJ, so that's my price range: <$2k, but I might go higher for a restored-to-mintish (aka ruined) vintage piece.

    How about one of those Seiko Presage enamel/urushi dials? If that doesn't say Men's Warehouse budget, nothing will lol.
