    Super Simple and Classic Swiss Automatic Watches?

    Howdy hey, this is my first thread post so please forgive me if this is in the wrong section!

    I'm just curious to see if there are any super duper simple and classic watches that fit the following description, or darn near it:
    38-40mm
    Swiss auto movement
    Sapphire crystal
    White dial
    Date
    Black leather band
    Arabic numerals

    Any insight or links in the right direction would be incredible! Thanks in advance!

    Not entirely sure what you mean by "super duper simple" but how about the hamilton intramatic?



    Photo stolen from elsewhere in the forums because I couldn't find the marketing shot of the silver on black variant.

    Ah, I forgot to mention a matte face with Arabic numerals!

    Super Simple Swiss Automatic Watches?

    You definitely just lost super duper simple. Personally, I'm of the opinion that you won't even make plain simple if you go past Arabic only at 12/3/6/9 (to continue in the hamilton theme the thin-o-matic is a beautiful example).

    Matte also may be problematic. My most matte white face (Arabic numerals all the way around) also has a lot of lume.

    You may need to revise or add more detail to your original request to get better suggestions. (On this one maybe even a sketch of exactly what you are looking for dial wise?). Most of us would tell you that the intramatic or one of the very Bauhaus style Nomos are the poster children of simple.

    Ah okay, hahaha, when I said simple, I definitely think I was describing something completely different.

    I meant classic, honestly like a swiss, automatic version of one of the the timex easy readers. Name:  T20501_0.jpg

    This is going to sound ridiculous... but around or under $500.

    I agree.... and here's an example to illustrate your point.
