    Watch for our 10 year anniversary

    My wife and I will be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary this year and I would like to get her a watch to mark the occasion. Based on my reconnaissance, she is looking for a black dialed, rectangle watch on a bracelet. No diamonds please as she does not like the "bling" look.

    She is flexible about quartz vs mechanical, but I assume quartz would be easier for her. I would like to stay below $3k if possible but we can vary up based on the watch.

    This is a great community and I have enjoyed reading the various threads throughout the year. Thank you in advance for suggestions.

    How about Citizen AR3040-56A or AR3045-52E

    Excellent brand, reliable and I think it's a beautiful gift for her.

    There are so many great ladies watches but the black dial really makes this a tough one. Is a black dial an absolute must?

    Probably not what you are looking for, but this Bell & Ross is black, rectangular and on a bracelet.
    The watch on the photo has 39 mm in diameter, they also exist in 42 and 45 mm (so you can get a matching one).

    Here are a couple of quartz options.

    On the less expensive side, the Hamilton Ardmore.

    And at the upper end, the Baume & Mercier Hampton Model 10021.

    I was going to suggest the B&M Hampton 10021 but slipstream8 beat me to it. It seems to check all your boxes.

    The B&M was the second watch that came to mind. The first: Longines DolceVita:

    I am the founder and president of the Anti-Bling Institute, but even I like diamonds when they're done right. Longines does it right:

    Both are in your price range even at straight MSRP.

    The Cartier Tank would fit in terms of proportions. It instantly comes to mind as a great choice for a woman's watch. It does not have a black dial, however.

    I really like the Longines. For something a little different, how about this Sinn 243? It also comes on a bracelet but the best picture I found is on the strap. Picture borrowed from the web:
