    Numerals but not sporty looking

    Does such a watch exist that has numerals but is not too sporty/field-watch in appearance? Preferably a lighter dial, or at least any color except black. This is something I'm always envisioning.

    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.

    I don't know if it exists in your price range, but is this the look you were thinking of?

    I really like that actually. Even though it's more complicated than I was thinking of.
    What brand is it?

    I like just about any vintage Timex regardless of numerals. I like most of the Vostok dials so I will probably get another one even though they are very sporty.

    This Seiko SGEH75P1 for around $90 on sale and the Burei below it for around $40 (it's a Longines homage).

    Yes! I was looking for a Bambino but couldn't find anything like that.

    For my money I’d go with the Timex - they’re surprisingly resilient.
