    Is there a mechanical watch that meets these criteria?

    Hello, i hope this is an appropriate thread and is in the correct place. I am new to these forums and the world of watches in general, having never bought a watch for more than $20. I recently became interested in mechanical watches and have decided to purchase one. I have been doing research and looking online and have found some i like but not quite one that meets everything i would like it to be, and am hoping someone here can help point me towards a watch.

    Needs:
    mechanical
    manual winding, not automatic
    displays the day of the month
    ~40mm or less, i have very small wrists.

    Wants:
    white face
    thin
    12/24 hour markings
    maybe without a center second hand
    brushed stainless steel case
    durable/water resistant

    These two watches come pretty close, i was actually thinking about getting the Hamilton but wanted to get some other suggestions before i spend money. My price limit is ~$500. I don't really care where it is made, i would prefer American but my preliminary research tells me that will not happen.

    Davosa Mecanique $489 (retail is ~$200 more) on ebay from martyns456 - ticks all your boxes I think (well, polished not brushed - but gorgeous ) - I got one a few weeks ago
