First off, thanks for all the recommendations in this previous thread:
I've tried on several recommendations in-store, ordered a few others to see in person, and owned a few in the recent past. Several of them were very nice. I've it narrowed down to 1 or 2 choices, and the Stowa Marine 36mm which I'll probably have to order from Germany to see. I really liked the way the thermal blued seconds hand looked in person on the white dial of the Mido Baroncelli. The only other watches I know of with the thermal blued hands and right specs are the Stowa Antea and Rado Coupole. Are there any other choices out there?
What I'm looking for:
-Thermal/Heat Blued hands. No blue paint
-White or Silver-White dial
-Can pass as a dress watch
-$1000 or less
This is likely going to be my least worn and most expensive watch, and will also be a sort of an "exit watch" for me. So I'm trying to pick one I'll really enjoy and want to wear more often. Thanks
