    Watch Advice: Small stainless steel square/rectangular men's dress watch

    Hi All

    I am in search of a small to medium sized stainless steel square/rectangular men's dress watch and wanted to ask for some help with recommendations.

    Honestly I love the Cartier Tank Solo due to its slim profile and sleek lines, but having trouble justifying the USD 2500 price tag for a quartz watch (maybe I'm thinking about it wrong though and it's not such a horrible value after all)? I looked at the XL on YouTube, but it looks too big for me.

    I was also looking at the JLC Reverso which I do like, but part of me feels like if I am going to buy a JLC I should get a Master so I can see the automatic movement in the back and appreciate it (I have a lot of respect for this brand). I also feel like the Reversos run a little bit thicker which isn't a deal breaker, but I do prefer the slimmer profile of the Tank Solo.

    It doesn't necessarily need to be a high luxury brand watch. To scratch the itch, I actually purchased a cheap quartz watch from target.com from a brand called Peugeot. It looks ok, but one thing I can't stand is it has a seconds hand that makes an audible tick which can be quite irritating (my wife has actually complained to me when I wear it because she says she can hear it from across the room).

    Just an aside, but I wish middle range brands had more to offer in this space. I actually happen to think that Mido is an extremely underrated watch manufacturer (I recently gifted a 36mm rose gold Baroncelli to my wife and was quite impressed with it myself). However, I didn't see much offered in the product range. I was also looking at Baume et Mercier and Fredrique Constant.

    Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
    Brian

    Tissot, Hamilton, Oris, and Rado all have some square/rectangular offerings in that entry to midrange segment. Seiko and Citizen also have some offerings in the affordable end of the spectrum.

    If I was going rectangular it would be either a Tank, a Reverso or an Oris.

    Christopher Ward Slimline Square. Out of production, but I am sure could be found.

    Great timing, this one is literally fresh out the box to wrist:

    I'm going to do a separate review/unboxing on this one in the Affordable forum.

    $150 shipped from Amazon for a Chinese auto of this build quality and fit/finish, I am VERY impressed so far. Definitely scratches the itch for a Nomos Tetra. My wrist is 6.25 inches so it appears big on me but should fit more like a true dress watch on guys with bigger wrists.

    EDIT - here's my review to anyone interested https://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/fe...l#post47019865
