    Looking for watch suggestions!

    Hi everybody,

    My six month old loves to grab and pull on my watches. Accordingly, I'm on the market for a few less expensive watches that I can wear around her without concern until she gets older.

    I'm looking for one that fits the following criteria:

    1) quartz movement;

    2) white dial;

    3) chronograph with hours function;

    4) preferably arabic numerals;

    5) size 38mm-42mm;

    6) similar styling to Hamilton Khaki or Swiss Army Classic - I could find silver dials from these brands but not white;

    7) price under $500;

    8) non-diver;

    9) sapphire crystal;

    A gentle slap on her hand. And you can buy whatever watch you want.
    It is important you show her:
    1: Who the boss is.
    2: Never to mess with a mans watch
    You will make her future husband a great favor!

    That was a joke. No, I would buy a watch with a PLASTIC case. More gentle on her hands and teeth if she ever decides to chew on it a little. A Swatch?

    A little bigger than what you requested, but other than that, I would give this a serious look. I love mine. There is one with a black face in the sales forums at the moment, but I really liked the white face.

    TX 730.....if you search my previous posts you will find a review with more pics. Be sure to let us know what you decide.

    Quick specs:
    316L SS
    Sapphire (no AR)
    Retrograde dials
    4 hour Chrono
    2nd TimeZone (24hr)
    VERY nice bracelet
    Nice engraved caseback
    100m WR
    Compass w/ compass rose bezel
    Crown is NOT screw-in (should have been, imho)
