Hi, I'm having real trouble finding a casual watch that I can wear with jeans, t-shirts, jumpers etc and would appreciate any suggestions.
i like relatively classic looks and nothing too ostentatious, I can find several quality dress watches that I love, e.g. Nomos, Dornbluth and Zenith watches but struggle to find the same quality for a more casual style of watch I can wear at weekends etc.
i have up to £3000/$4800 to spend for a preferably new watch. However I would like something a little special and unusual and would like the watch on a leather strap. Preferably I would like to avoid the sort of brands that just order and assemble parts and stick in an eta movement etc (And I do not particularly like omega watches)
As an example I really like the Baume and mercier capeland models, but I cannot justify the cost of the watch, do not know if the quality is there and feel it is overpriced for essentially a stock eta 7750. While I like the zenith captain central seconds and its in house movement but fear it is too formal for casual wear and that it would get put in a drawer and worn very rarely (despite enjoying looking at it).
