    Question 36mm-40mm, clean, white dress watch + colorful NATO strap suggestions? <$500

    Hi guys! I've developed something of a pattern in my watch taste recently: relatively simple white-faced watches, generally 40mm and under, paired with colorful NATO straps. I wonder if you guys could suggest other watches that might appeal to me?

    Here's what I have now:

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions I get here. On my wish list right now are the Beijing ZhuFeng/Everest and Seiko SARB031.

    No, but I could suggest you some decent straps for them...

    All under $50, L-R:
    Poljot (USSR); HMT (India), WUS LE White Pilot and vintage Janata; DongFeng (China)

    Not forgetting my 60s/70s Benrus (about $100)

    and the $5 Timex (70s)

    Personally I prefer these vintage one piece nylons to NATOs

    I agree with the HMT suggestion, they make great dress watches, as they are simple, small and thin.

    Also I think you may your smaller than/greater than symbols backwards.

    + 1 for the idea of a SARB035.

    He asked for suggestions greater than $500. None of these suggestions come close to that minimum.

    With respect, cak, from his original post he seems to have got his greater and less signs backwards

    FC Index Auto, 40mm and on sale at Joma for $445. Seems a bit to classy for a colorful NATO pairing though :/

    Yep, indeed, I typed greater-than when I meant to type less-than. That's what I get for writing this at 2:30 in the morning! I'm interested in smaller (<40mm) dressy white watches under $500.
