    Recommend me a white/silver dial watch

    Hey guys, I'm thinking of a white or silver dial watch to round out my collection. I realized all of my watches are either black or blue dialed and I wanted a white dial that goes well with a blue strap. I want something close to the IWC 3714-46 but since I already have a black 3714 I wanted something different, my requirements are:

    Case diameter: 38-42mm
    Case thickness: less than 13 mm, preferably thinner
    Hands and number color: anything but rose/gold, blue preferred
    Price range: Anything from $500-$5000
    Style: Something not TOO dressy, I would like to be able to dress down with that watch, other than that anything goes

    Please no NOMOS watches. I tried the tangente and the orion earlier this month but was not fan of the lugs.

    Thanks guys and please send me anything! Any suggestion is welcome and appreciated!

    This thing is built like a tank and looks great...Hamilton Pilot H64425555.

    I am 3 months into a 1 year field test with this watch and it's humming along nicely

    The first thing that comes to mind is a marine/deck watch. Casual style, blue hands. Maybe a Stowa?

    For something with a cool "hook", the Tourby Marine Silver has a dial made of Sterling silver. 42mm x 11mm...

    My archimede deck watch. The hands are flame blued but it gets hard to tell in some pictures. The stowa is on my to get list. I've stated several times that I'm a huge fan of white dials.

    Another pic in different lighting showing the hands.

    I really like both the Tag and Archimede pictured already. I'd also look at the Longines

    +1 to the Longines; really hits all your requirements nicely and it is a classy watch that can dress down, if need be. Grand Seiko might have something of interest for you (quartz lineup, to get it thinner). You could also wade through the hundreds of Christopher Ward options...

    I really like this watch, I never thought of getting a pilot watch but it's a really good size for my small wrist and super thin. My only concern is that it's a 14mm lug width, am I reading that right?

    Ooh I do like the Tourby but I don't know that brand at all, I would have to read up on it, which Stowa are you recommending?

    If I wanted the nomos then I wouldn't be asking for a recommendation haha.

    I don't know why I'm not a big fan of the style. Maybe it's the hands? Do you have a picture of the watch with leather straps?

    Love this watch, I actually like how the hand color changes!
