    Help: Looking for PVD cased, Black Dial, Light Brown/Tan strap Watch. Or often referred as vintage/h

    I apologise if someone has posted this question before. I'm looking for vintage military/aviator style watches. The following are my preferences:
    • Black PVD case
    • Black dial face
    • Brown vintage colour hands and markings
    • Tan/light brown leather watch strap


    I don't really mind if it is quartz but it would be nice if its an automatic(that would be very pricey =( )

    These are the watches that I've found so far:

    My favourites are Bell & Ross watches but of course those are far too expensive for my budget.

    The most affordable option is the Timex T2N700 but there are a few flaws: the second hand doesn't align with the markings and the most annoying 1,3,6,8,9 mistake at the lower right of the watch. I cannot tolerate with the misalligned markings as there is no point having the second hand if the markings are inaccurate.

    My only option left is the Steinhart Nav B-Chrono II black DLC, which is reasonably priced considering that it is using a Swiss Made automatic movement. However it is still slightly over my budget so I would like to get everyone's opinion on any alternative watches. Thanks in advance.

    Check out Hamilton. This one looks pretty much all you asked for.

    Take a look at Stowa and Laco, no black cases but those are about as accurate as they come for vintage military/aviator. I believe it's said around here that Stowa is better quality, while Laco produces watches that are closer to replicas of watches in WWII.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, I will look into the watches that you all have mentioned

    Meanwhile I've came across this watch:
    Tsovet FW331011-02 (GBP320)
    Name:  fw331011-021000_blk.jpg

    The watch dial is very pretty and it is very close to my criteria except for the watch strap part, which I very much prefer the light brown/tan colour strap that gives you the vintage look.

    BTW has anyone heard of Tsovet? Are their watches any good?

    Instead of posting my own, I would like to revive this thread!

    Are there any more/new suggestions out there?

    Ofcourse there are the Panerai PVD's that the lum-tec watches are inspired by.

    That PVD/DLC pam 005 is not done by pam
    There are several pvd/dlc pam,but the price are IMHO too expensive (26,28,195,360,363 comes to mind,I believe there are some other models)
