After a lot of research and a lot of back and forth I think the Montblanc Heritage Ultra Slim is exactly what I am looking for.
Hand wound, under 40 mm, silver or white dial, clean Arabic face, black leather strap, and between $1-$2k.
I would have purchased it by now but it appears that it has been out of stock on the gray market for quite some time? I like the idea of spending $1,400 instead of $2k. Assuming I can find a new one now on a reputable site?
Either way I would appreciate some suggestions if anyone knows of any other very similar options.
The Hamilton Intra-Matic is a cool watch but I just want to spend a bit more. One of the Junghans Max Bill watches is also very intriguing but I don’t believe it has a display back. Not a must-have but it is a nice option.
The Montblanc 1858 is also close but I don’t see a light dial and not sure I want a small second hand.
Any advice/recommendations greatly appreciated.
