    Gift Help looking for a two tone watch

    The brother in law of a collegue of mine is looking for a new watch. I hope someone can help me out with suggestions.

    He is looking for a watch which is:
    -new
    -Swiss Made
    -automatic
    -two tone case (steel and preferably gold plated, so preferably not only gold colored)
    -two tone dial (steel and gold plating)
    -round case
    -metal bracelet
    -a bit dressy (so no chronographs or other busy complications)
    -preferably 40mm
    -date
    -BLACK dial!! (I came across many white dial options, but that's not what he wants)
    -and a price around 600 euro with a max of 1000 euro.

    As they say a picture tells more than thousand words. So this is what he came up with.



    Not my cup of tea, but the guy is in China where most of them like gold and diamond on their watches.

    My 2 current options are





    Hope you have some more ideas.

    I like that Certina Powermatic.

    Could be worth checking the Bulova Calibrator - the brand is American but the movement is Swiss. There is a two tones case available for $1500 on leather strap - more pricey because it comes with a solid gold bezel.

    Thx! That's a good one.

    I noticed most bi color watched have rose gold at the moment. Any yellow gold options?

    Anyone else any more tips?

    That's a cool one, which I as WIS find intereeting, because of thencalibrator.

    But he requires a metal bracelet, because he needs the watch to be water resistant. Leather and dirt&water don't mix well.

    Most anything in that range will have a very light plating of gold and it will wear off and or scratch pretty easily, so make to look at all of the options available, as some are better at two-tone than others.

    Unless the gold is solid I would tend to steer away from TT watches as they can be prone to wear if only plated.
