    Please help me choose my next watch

    I made up some good reasons to buy another watch and it would be great if I could get some advice and suggestions from you. The watches I currently wear are:

    • Hamilton Jazzmaster
    • Oris TT1 diver
    • Limes Chyros


    Attachment 1020921

    I have rough idea about how my next watch should look like.

    • It should have a black dial
    • Be either automatic or hand wind
    • No chrono, no dress watch, no diver
    • Be at least 41 mm in diameter
    • It should cost below €2k / $3k

    I would like if it had a complication/ movement I don't have so far and it would be great if it had some unique or special feature, such as the in-house case of the Limes. But ultimately, I will decide based on looks and it can be a bold looking watch.

    Have you considered a flieger? Doesn't really fit with your complication request, though.

    Stowa has thermally blued hands which are pretty neat, and a great history. The 41mm flieger would be handwound but would not have a second hand.

    Nomos Club Datum Automatic?

    In-house movement with date and sub-dial seconds. Dark face, 41mm Can be had for within your budget.

    That's a beautiful and complicated watch, but I am looking for a watch with a dark dial.

    I've been fixated on the Ball Night Train DLC from the moment I saw it. I prefer the older model.

    Here's the current model:

    I agree with the Stowa and Nomos recommendations as well.
