    That's the Monarch. Currently the only ones with the white dial I' finding have a gold case, if that's your thing. Jomashop has one for $164.

    And even less expensive option is the Symphony at $90. Maybe even less if you shop around.

    No American I know does.

    We call them FREEDOM NUMBERS!!

    (sarcasm)

    Anyway... As to non sporty with numbers, how about...

    Edit—oh. Your budget is sub $100.

    This Wenger Attitude isn't too bad but still a bit field watch. $80



    Casio (I have this but black dial) $15

    My favorite dial is the Timex Easy Reader with the full numeral dial. But I rarely even wear it because I prefer tougher watches. I usually wear sportier watches, but every time I look down at it, it looks too sporty/casual and I wish it looked different. I like vintage dials also.

    I really like some of the vintage Timex's but I don't want an older watch. I'm open to anything on the lower affordable end. Under $100.
    Thanks for any ideas.
    Why not an older watch? I love the vintage watches and most of my collection consists of the older watches. Just don't buy one that is super cheap. I got burned too many times doing that. But, everybody should buy the watches they like and I realize that vintage is not for everyone. Don't completely rule out Timex.

    What brand is it?
    It's a Poljot Strela. I don't think that model is available any more though.

    No, it's not "we guys" (whoever that is) that call them Arabic. That's what they're called. There's no such thing as American numerals. They were invented by the Arabs, and were in use around the world long before America existed (or was even "discovered").

    Some Korean watch brand Tisell got something that might look good. It's got a Miyota automatic so unfortunately it goes for around 210$.

    You may want to take a look at the Hamilton Jazzmaster Thinline Quartz collection.

    I really like that Seiko two posts above. The numerals are similar to the Timex.
