    Manual winding watch: can you suggest some models?

    Hello WUS readers,

    i'm looking for a manual winding watch. The guideline for the research are:

    - Price below 2000€ (2600$, 1600£)
    - Case diameter up to 40mm
    - Sapphire glass
    - New

    I already own a Nomos and i know their watches, so please suggest something else. I would like to see if there's something else out there
    Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I would like to buy a new one (i just modified the first post). Anyway i tried it and the rectangular shape is not that alluring to me.

    I have seen several 44 - 46mm watches out there. But my wrist is really thin and, after trying a couple of them, i don't really like how they look.
    I mean, they are coming out of both the sides of the wrist :O

    Davosa mecanique for the 2nd time tonight
    $500 plenty of change for other stuff too !

    Bargain @ $489 > New DAVOSA "Classic Mechanical" manual winding watch Ref.160.404.16 | eBay
    (Should be a lot more retail)
    He also sells the auto version of the same watch , bit dearer , but I'd have this mecanique hands over an auto - not connected with this seller - just a satisfied customer of his

    It's somewhat over your budget, but this is the one that comes to mind:



    Normally I'd suggest a Nomos, but since you already have that, this is probably the next step up.

    Archimede makes cool watches, and have a lot of movement options, and they make really cool pilots if that's your fancy.

    I think Zenith makes a 'Class Elite' handwound dress watch (thin, and about 37mm diameter) that's about $3000 MSRP, but goes for around $2200 - $2500 on the Grey Market. Very tempting.

    If you can afford that one, get it.
