I'm looking to expand my watch "collection," which currently consists of one watch that I wear all the time - a vintage Junghans Max Bill. Ideally, I'd like to find two watches (a causal one and a dressier one), at least one of which with a Chrono function (preferably the more causal one). While I don't plan on buying any of them new, I realize that some of the combinations listed below would still be above my budget. My wrists are small (6.5"), so anything above 40mm tends to look hideous.
In-house movements are preferable, but not required. I don't care for moon phase complications or really elaborate designs. I'm looking for versatility, good looks, a reliable and robust movement. Also, I don't like most Omega designs (esp. the Speedy), but love the AT. Metal bracelets (with a few exceptions) don't look great on my wrist.
I've done some research and here are the current favorites:
Sinn 356 Flieger
Zenith El Primero Rainbow (love the design, I'm just not sure if it would be too bulky for my wrist)
Zenith El Primero Class 4 (current favorite)
IWC Fliegerchronograph 3706 (although I think the Sinn 356 is a better value for the money)
Girard-Perregaux Classic Elegance 49570 (not an easy watch to find, though)
Girard-Perregaux 9053, cal. 3300
Omega AT 2500 (2503.80)
Longines Column Wheel Chronograph
Zenith Elite cal. 680
