    Simple clean Design- reccomendations?

    Hey, I've been lurking the forums for a little while looking for a new watch.
    I'm looking for something with a really simple clean design on the face. Nothing extraneous like tons of dials or markings. I've only found a few brands that seem to have something like what I'm looking for.
    Examples: Stock Watches
    Could I get some recommendations?
    Movement doesn't matter too much to me, mainly looking at design qualities.

    What other brands are you looking at? I don't know if you'll get many responses after posting this as your first post. Usually when I see a post like this, it's from someone working on behalf of the seller, and they never return to the forum to check replies.

    Try the Stowa Antea, the Max Bill by Junghans or anything by Nomos. These all might be outside your price limit.

    I was also looking at Universal Wares as a somewhat similar design style but nothing really caught my eye there

    For a Bauhaus-style watch, I like the Smiths Big Date:

    Mondaine have some nice ones as well:

    Although both are a bit busier than the ones you linked.

    Uniform Wares are as minimalist as they come.

    Mondaine is another minimalist, Bauhaus design.

    I'd second Junghans Max Bill, add the Stowa Partitio, and agree with anything Nomos. I'd add the Movado Museum and Hamilton Intra-Matic.

    My main recommendation would also be Nomos. But you could google bauhaus watches and that style will probably appeal a lot to you. Junghans is also very clean.


    There's a Zurich.



    Here's a Tangente.

    There's just something that brings relief when looking at a Nomos dial. It's hard to explain, and maybe it's just me, but somehow the lack of clutter eases anxiety.
