    Help me find the perfect watch!

    I'm goal-oriented and currently I really have no goal for what watch I'll get next. The reason is that I can't find "the" watch that meets my requirements. So help me out!

    *Required case material: stainless/rose gold combination or all rose gold
    *Required size: 38mm - 42mm
    *Dial: black
    *Movement: automatic, preferably COSC, with date only. No chronographs.
    *Black leather strap or bracelet in two-tone rose/stainless.
    *In general, I want it to look dressy.

    Any ideas?

    Omega makes the Planet Ocean in 42mm in rose with a black strap, but I've never seen it in person, or even on the internet.

    I've tried on a handful of two-tone rose/stainless Rolex datejusts but they are too small, I think.

    Omega makes a number of Devilles in rose gold, which are probably the closest; like the hour vision. I can't remember if that dial is black or brown, though.

    The new Omega Aqua Terra in two-tone looks like it might be a winner but I can't figure out what that dial will look like in person.

    Thoughts?

    Here's one.... Mido Baroncelli M8600.3.13.4
    I saw it somewhere for $459.00 USD.
    The downside is it's rose-gold PVD... But I think they also have a stainless steel version on a band.

    Intersting. I'm not totally opposed to Rose Gold PVD, but if going that route, I might as well get a rose bracelet to match the look since I won't incur the additional cost. For example, I'd LOVE for Bathys to come out with a rose aquaculture with matching rose bracelet. If I'm getting something on strap, though, I'd prefer for it to be an actual gold watch. That line of thinking probably doens't make sense but I figured I'd toss it out there anyway
