    Recommendation new to site

    Looking for a recommendation for a Automatic watch with some of these following criteria.
    *Dress style
    *Thin
    *10 ATM or so. I don?t dive but would like to be able to get in pool or hot tub.
    *Power Reserve
    *Nice illumination
    *Not large prefer less than 42mm 38 would be really nice
    *Affordable but don?t mind if it?s a really good watch.

    Found this Parnis brand and I don?t know anything about them. But looking for options. This fills many of my likes. I also like the blue hands.

    Thanks

    Re: Recommendation new to site

    Parnis watches are not highly thought of in these parts. They are often unapologetic knock-offs of other watches and of dubious quality.

    Wearing watches in hot tubs is also not a popular idea; it may test the limits of a watch's water resistance because of the chemicals and heat eating away at the gaskets.

    So we may direct you to some of the Forum favorites, although you are not entirely clear about how much money is affordable.

    Look around at Seiko, Orient, Hamilton, Mido. Then come on back and ask a few more questions.

    The Hamilton Intra-matic checks most of those boxes. Lume and dress watches don’t usually go together though.

    Thank you. I would like to stay under $700. I like the Orient Bambino but really like a hack and wind feature and a power reserve would be nice. Maybe day and date. At least date though.

    The Orient is a good one (I had one a year ago, really liked it, sorry I sold it).
    Also look over the new Seiko Presage lineup: https://www.seiko-presage.com/

    Welcome aboard! You're in good hands for finding something you'll like.

    You'll likely have to compromise on some of your criteria, though. Some of them, while not mutually exclusive, certainly nearly contradict each other.

    Thin and dress style go together.

    10 ATM and "nice illumination" go together.

    Power reserve could go either way. Same with 38–42mm.

    And of course, what most of us seek, all that and affordable to boot.

    Most dress style watches, especially those that are thin (putting them more firmly in the dress category) either have poor lume or no lume. Many dress watches have water resistance of 5 ATM or less.

    The power reserve indicator will definitely limit your options. If you relax that, some more possibilities open up. Under $700, I'd give Hamilton a hard look.

    This is the Hamilton Jazzmaster, there are other variations. I'm not a big fan of the PR complication, and there aren't many options out there, but I guess these are good looking watches if you are into PR.
