I am an American in Germany looking for a replacement for my L.L. Bean field watch. I like smaller and simple watches preferably about 38mm-40mm. I'm a wildlife biologist by profession so it'll need to be a bit rugged. It appears that a lot of the watches available in America are more expensive here and having them sent out from an American retailer means paying import tax in addition to shipping. I'm open to any and all words of wisdom from you watch enthusiasts out there! Perhaps there are some European manufactured watches that fit the bill? With two young children I'm afraid my budget is very tight.
Apologies if I've run afoul of any forum etiquette.
