    Recommend me a Enamel Dial better than Breguet (Rules Apply)

    Seriously considering my next purchase to be a Breguet Classic Automatic 40mm with the white enamel dial. Either White or Yellow gold.

    I still have some concerns that the Breguet may be too big for my 6.7" wrist at 40mm. (Anyone have hands on one that can share?). For the record I do not mind the off center seconds at all.

    Rules are simple:
    40mm - 34mm (round) or 24mm - 32mm (square)
    4,000 - 10,000 USD used or new

    I've ruled out:
    Lundis Bleus and their more modern offerings.
    IWC F.A. Jones (can't find one small enough, but really like this one too)
    Seiko Prestige (Nice, but not better, and I prefer small seconds to center)

    Looking forward to any suggestions, thanks guys.

    Have you looked at Jaquet Droz? I know they have some 39mm enamel-dial options. Might be a bit over budget though.

    I got my Jaquet Droz new for not too much over the OP's budget... used, if you can find one, it might be in budget.

    Yea, nothing in the price range that is interesting. Extremely rare as it is to have anything below 43mm in JD, let alone a nice fired Enamel

    Not sure of your budget, but what about Moritz Grossmann Benu Enamel? They are extremely impressive, have two color options, and a wonderful movement. (Pics from ABTW)

    Although I do not think it is "better," the UN Classico Manufacture would be another option/style with the Romans instead of Arabics:

    Vey nice. But my budget is pretty strict. I've seen those in the 12,000+ range

    Very cool, like the size a lot. Personally like the Breguet Painted numbers a little better. Wayyy above budget though. About 4x new and 2.5x used.

    The UN is interesting. Given the very attractive price (and I like the Blue one). The Date is a little bit of a put off on a watch like this in that location.

    Yeah... you'd probably have to find a used one. And mine is 39mm, FWIW.

    What about the slim d'hermes? It fits your budget and size requirement.
