Yes, I know, another what watch thread...
Budget is ~1500 USD, new or used. I have no proclivity towards the expensive, so good quality at a good price is preferred. I considered posting in the Affordables area, but traffic appears much slower there.
I'm looking for a "dress" watch with a specific feature set. There are a few things I want in the watch that are non-negotiable and a few that are preferred but are not deal-breakers. The watch will be to replace an Orient Vintage FFD0F004W0. I like this watch, but the proportions don't quite suit my taste. The 40mm case is an acceptable diameter, but the 12mm thickness and lug design make this particular watch somewhat of a hockey puck on my 7.5" wrist. The case is too thick and too small in diameter on my wrist. It looks chunky.
Please save the comments about how a dress watch should be 38mm or less. I'm looking for help identifying watch models that fit specific criteria, not help redefining my criteria.
-at least 40mm (without crown)
-white/silver/cream face, any guilloche pattern or such is fine as long as the dial is a light color
-central seconds hand (no small seconds, please)
-thin profile, don't have a specific thickness dimension in mind, just a slim profile, no hockey pucks
-no gold/brass tones
-good symmetry (no 4:30 date windows, no off-center power reserve indicators, etc.)
Preferred, but not deal-breakers:
-42mm or 44mm diameter
-brown leather band with deployment clasp (can always swap to this, hence not a deal-breaker)
-date complication, day/date is also OK
-no lume, or the less lume the better
I have been considering the Orient Bambino FER2400CN0, but wanted to see what else you all recommend. I have an Orient Bambino FER24004B0 that I wear as a black dress watch, so I'd rather branch out a little than just get another version of the Bambino to wear with brown belts/shoes.
