    Toughest 2 handed MECHANICAL watch. No seconds, no date. 200m at least.

    A quick search didn't come up with anything.

    Please show me the toughest 2 hand watch you're aware of.

    I'd like to find a mechanical (automatic or manual wound) watch to just set the time and go.

    Not many out there but the ones I know fit are in the Panerai collection. For example the Luminor Base PAM 000.

    Great start, but how about < 42mm?

    Nothing off the top of my head. Most dateless 2 handers are dress watches.
    Get yourself an Explorer 1 and pull the second hand off it ;)
    ed. actually Ex 1 is only 100m I think.

    Only 50m WR right?

    Panerai doesn't make a 40mm Luminor Base, only the Marina with a small seconds hand. I don't think they make a 42mm Radiomir with no small seconds either, plus they are 100m WR.

    This will be tough since 2 handers are more often than not dress watches.

    May I suggest a 14060M or 114060, send it to a qualified watch maker and have it's central seconds hand removed.

    That's an interesting watch. What's a polycarbonate crystal...acrylic?

    Neat idea for a thread. But with a desire for "set and go", and the required lack of seconds hand, why not quartz? You won't be bothered by the seconds hand not sweeping or not hitting the markers.

    I assume when you're specifying 200m WR, you mean with today's perverted standards of WR. If we're talking ISO/DIN standards, 100m is more like the baseline for a "diver's watch."

    I don't imagine you'll find too many suggestions, but it will be interesting to see.
