    Please Help: Looking for a Promotion Watch....around $1000

    Hi, I've been looking for the perfect watch, or as close to perfect for the need of the watch. I was recently promoted, and would like to buy a watch to commemorate the occasion. In the past whenever I've had a special occasion, I've bought a watch....graduation (Tissot TXS), wedding (Longines Evidenza), 30th birthday (Tag Kirium). The watch does not have to be a ladies version, as long as it's not bigger that 42mm.
    These are the criteria:
    - white- mother of pearl face
    - interchangeable belts, or easy to interchange with 3rd party straps
    -around $1000

    optional- day-date window
    The options that I've looked at so far:
    - Oris Aquis- but I believe that the straps aren't interchangeable with 3rd party ones. I like the mother of pearl version.

    Please let me know if there are any others that I've not thought of.
    Thanks for the help.

    I can't think of any options as I only wear men's watches...however, keep in mind that you could wear more than 42m...it's all about the lugs ;) happy hunting! Your options look pretty good :)

    You can get the Movado Datron with a pearl dial and ETA 2824 or Sw200 movement (depends on the date of manufacture) for around $600 from most Movado Company Stores. Online retailers may be more but I'm not entirely sure. It comes on an oyster bracelet but it can be taken off and a strap put in it's place. The Datron collection is one of the few lines Movado makes that attracts me. Good luck in your search!

    EDIT***
    for some reason my phone wont allow me to attach a picture however a quick search should bring it up. It's style number is 0606391 in case your interested.

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

    Of the three I'd go with the Visodate as well. The all white watch with rotating bezel is so ubiquitous right now--and most are really cheap. The Tissot is classy and keeps you from looking like every other woman jumping on the white watch bandwagon. (My wife is on that bandwagon, by the way, so I am casting stones in a glass house!) And since you are open to suggestions...I might suggest my Stowa Marine. Well under $1,000, 40mm, and very well made. Congrats on the promotion!
