Just joined this amazing forum. I've spent quit a bit of time searching this site over the past few days but would appreciate your advice on a mens dress watch. Here's my criteria:
1-Thin, smallish not big and bulky
2-Want a simple dial with date. Only need it to tell time and remind me of the date. Don't need anything else on the dial.
3-Prefer gold case color and leather strap. Don't want a metal bracelet.
4-Will consider vintage.
5-Price range around $1,000 US
To give you an idea of what appeals to me I really like the looks of the vintage Baume & Mercier model 95248. Know very little about Baume & Mercier but find it curious that this forum doesn't even have a catagory for Baume & Mercier? Does that mean these are not good watches? Thanks in advance for your advice.
