    White dial watches under $1500 similar in style to the Stowa Partitio and JLC Geophysic 38-40mm

    I really like the design of these two watches because they are versatile designs that are timeless. They are also not too formal and not too casual, so you can wear them with more outfits. The JLC Geophysic is way out of my price range so I am heavily considering the Partitio. I wondered if anyone had any other recommendations.

    I also wondered if anyone who owns the partitio could chime in on the size of the watch and how it wears on the wrist at 37mm and if you recommend the manually wound or automatic version.

    I actually just bought a handwound Partitio and absolutely love it. I didn’t have a preference in handwinding or automatic but was offered a great deal for a like new handwound from another member that I couldn’t pass up. I like the fact that I don’t have to shake it and the power reserve is true to around 40 hours and extremely accurate. It’s sits perfect on my 6.5 inch wrist and looks great with many straps. The Stowa strap is very well made, super comfortable and requires no breaking in. The lume is fantastic! Here’s a pic for reference:

    I’d also recommend the handwound. You get a better finished movement that way and a display back. Fun to watch the movement as you wind it. Stowa makes good watches and offers good VFM

    Hmm. White dial, under $1500, reasonably sized, little bit of lume... Why not a Nomos Club Campus?

    Although I love the Nomos value for money, it is a bit on the small side for me and the style doesn't speak to me as much

    There is also the 'Club Datum', which comes in at 38.5mm. Although if the design doesn't float your boat that won't be of much use.

    Hmm, I will think about that, do you know the lug to lug width of the datum? I noticed it doesn't have it listed on their site

    The Club Campus 38 is also a 38,5mm case... If you are looking at the partitio, the clubs are literally in the exact same size ballpark.
