    Slim Dress Watch <4000 USD Recommendation

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to find a dress watch that meets the following specifications:

    • Price: <$4000 USD
    • Condition: New
    • Case size: 36mm - 38.5mm
    • Thickness: <10mm
    • Movement: Automatic or hand-wound
    • Dial color: White, silver, or off-white
    • Material: Stainless steel
    • Functions: Very basic (no date window!)
    • Strap: Leather
    • Origin: Preferably Swiss, but it doesn't really matter


    Can any of you recommend me a watch that matches these features? I am having a rather tough time doing so...

    Thank you!

    Rico

    Not my type of watches, but the Nomos Orion range fits your criteria, especially the Orion 38.

    Manual wound, no-date, 38mm diameter, 8.9mm thickness. $2,560.

    I'm sure they also have other models that match your list.

    Sadly, although I respect Nomos as a brand, I am not the biggest fan of Bauhaus-style watches.

    Thank you for the suggestion, however!

    I was going to suggest the NOMOS Ludwig 38 but you mentioned that you dont really like bauhaus design. What else we're you looking for on the dial? Raised markers? More text or textured?

    Montblanc might have something that fits.. The Star Classique maybe?

    The Montblanc Chronometrie Ultra Slim would have been my first suggestion but it was discontinued a year or so ago so finding it new in stock somewhere would be really hard.

    I'm not sure how best to describe my dial preferences, but I prefer dials that are uncluttered.

    Watches that meet the aesthetic I'm going for are the JLC Ultra Thin Small Seconds, Zenith Elite, and vintage Omega Seamasters. Sadly, the first two are a little above my price range, and I'd like to purchase something new rather than used/vintage.

    Hope that helps!

    I’d suggest doing your best to find a Montblanc Ultra Slim. 38mm, manual wind, 5.8mm thick and stunning. The alligator strap is also super comfortable.

    If you can stretch your size to 39mm, Zenith has some nice offerings in their Elite and Classic ranges.
