I'm on the hunt for my next purchase and came across this LE Nivrel. Never heard of the brand but enjoyed learning about the history. I feel it can be worn on all occasions. My only hang up is the fact that it has a mineral crystal. So while I ponder what to do I thought I'd ask what suggestions you may have. I'm looking for a non-diver, all occasion automatic watch, 42mm-44mm, 28,800 vph, for $1000 or less. I dig this sunburst dial and my current preference is to avoid black so blue and silver are what I am after. I look forward to your feedback.
