I've been struggling to select the right watch to use as a daily "work watch." I dress in a suit and tie, so a watch that can fit under a cuff is ideal. Sometimes I roll my sleeves, sometimes they're down and buttoned. It is worth noting that although I mostly work from a desk, that isn't always the case and ideally the watch I'm going to get can shrug off a few dings.
I did purchase a Marathon 36mm Mini-TSAR as I thought it would be perfect, but it turns out it's just a bit too small. The regular size TSAR I feel is too big and thick, so I think Marathon is out as an option.
I am completely open as far as styles, dress divers and more classic styles are all on the table, as well as more casual watches that can be dressed up a bit. Price is up to $1000. I'm looking for more unique pieces or basically something "different." And my only definition of different is "not typical" if that makes any sense. I'm sort of "over" Hamilton / Tissot and the mid level Swiss watches as I've owned quite a few of them in the past and want to go in a different direction.
In addition to Marathon, I've been strongly considering a Stowa Antea or Archimede deck watch. Other considerations were a Halios Tropik, Ball Fireman, and the thought of a great condition Seiko 6105 entered my mind as well.
My collection is in my signature to help recommend a piece that will "fit." While several of my watches would certainly fit the bill, I like having a specific "work watch" because I baby my watches and since this watch has the possibility to get beat up, I want one watch to take the beating.
Thanks very much guys, been scratching my head a bit here.
