    Watch suggestions for simple clean 3 hander

    I'm looking for a simple, clean, highly legible three-hander. Would love some suggestions.

    I'm looking for something dressy, or vintage, but would consider sport as well. Want reasonably thin (say, around or under 10mm). Hand wind is good because it means thinner. Mid range in price is preferable, i.e. not super cheap, but not as high as an Omega or Rolex.

    I love the Junghans below, but at 37.7mm it's a little small. Looking for around 40mm.

    So any suggestions would be great.
    Cheers,

    I'm not sure what your price threshold is but you can pick up a used Omega AT 2500 for under $2k.

    That Junghans looks great. Do not be put off by the apparent small size. Due to the thin bezel, it will probably wear a little larger.

    Hello from a fellow Sydneysider!

    Your criteria is actually quite difficult to match, thin watches are typically dress pieces and so are smaller than 40mm.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre has one but it may be above your budget:

    Master Grande Ultra Thin Small Seconds in steel. Its an auto, but is only 8.62mm thick.

    Nomos has the Ahoi, which is 40mm in diameter and 10.5mm thick:

    And for something quite different, you could also consider the Eco Drive One:

    39.8mm wide but only 3mm thick!

    Hope those help.

    Maybe something from the Epos Originale series? These are a mix of auto and handwind. The handwinds are all under 10mm (the ultra thin blue dial is under 7mm), the autos under 11mm. They're between 38 and 41 mm case size, and generally come in multiple dial colors/case finishes.

    Nomos was the first (and only) option that came to my mind upon reading your question - but I see that others have already suggested that option. Still, that Junghans looks great! A WWII-like design, but enlarged a bit to a more modern ~38mm size. Wouldn't mind one of those on my wrist...

    Check out the Ebel Classic 100 line, Baume & Mercier Clifton and Classima, Nomos, Laco Classic, and as was already stated above, the Junghans will probably wear slightly larger than the dimensions note.
