    Help finding watch with magnified date window

    My friend who is looking for a new watch (<$1000 retail) asked me if I knew of any watches with the magnified date window on the crystal. I thought I'd ask all of you for your assistance. He is open to all types of watches, but probably not over 43mm diameter. Please add pics if possible. Thanks in advance for helping out!

    If you're looking for a Sub homage, some of them replicate the "cyclops" of a Rolex. For instance, the Squale 20 Atmos:

    Ball Fireman Racer. You can get a used one for around $1,000 on a stainless steel bracelet. I think it is 40 or 41 mm. I purchased one a couple of months ago and I love it

    "How much less than $1000?"

    I'm not sure, but I would guess the cheaper the better along with the caveat of "best bang for the buck"

    Sporty or dressy style? It's important to ensure that the magnifier is decent quality. Some are poor quality with minimal magnification making them virtually useless. I think this watch goes for about $1000 and has a 2.5x sapphire magnifier. Worth noting also that magnifiers are very easily and cheaply installed on any watch with a flat crystal.
