    German Manual Wind Dress Watches

    Hi watch lovers.

    Iím looking for a German mechanical dress watch thatís manually wound, under 40mm, and under 7k USD.

    Iím aiming to build a 3-watch collection covering Swiss, Japanese, and German watchmaking. I recently came across the Sinn WG Meisterbund I and fell in love with that piece in both of its forms: Rose gold with white dial, and white gold with anthracite dial, although Iíd lean more toward the rose gold piece. Itís a manual wind machine Made in Germany.

    Do you have suggestions or thoughts on this?

    Take a look at the Nomos Orion family of watches as another possible option.

    This is the second post I've seen in this vein: looking to build a 3 watch collection from Swiss, German, and Japanese. The entire thing strikes me as a bit strange. It's as if you said, "I'm looking to build a 3 watch collection from watch brands that begin with the letters C, K, and J.

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the reason for exactly 3 watches, and why one from Switzerland, one from Japan, and one from Germany? Not trying to troll, just missing the point. But as noted, this is the second time I've seen this type of request, so I suppose it's a thing...

    Prahasaurus, as Iím sure youíre aware, meaningful collections follow themes. And for me, I wish to own three watches in my collection, no more than that, each fulfilling a particular purpose. Thereís also the reasoning that these 3 different regions seem to be driving innovation the most in watchmaking right now. Iíd like to own something symbolic of the efforts put forth by these different regions of watchmakers, according to my tastes.

    It so happens that I own and truly appreciate a Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36, which is an automatic watch. I consider that my everyday watch. And for the advancements theyíve brought to the watch world with quartz, Iím drawn to Seiko. More specifically, the Grand Seiko 9F GMT movement in their sports collection. And finally, Iíd love to own a German dress watch, considering that I already am aiming toward something sporty from Japan, and a daily from the Swiss. Something more formal would be agreeable to add, and complete my collection.

    Iíd have loved to pick something more field-focused and rugged, but the GS would fill that need, and as I already aim on having a quartz and an automatic, I figured a manual wind would offer solid enough differentiation for me to appreciate all my watches for their qualities.

    Also, Iím not so wealthy that I can afford the top of the line examples from each region, but I still believe I can find watches that are still reliable and represent the craftsmanship of each region without fail.

    Thatís my reasoning.

    Meaningful collections follow themes? I guess Iíve been doing it wrong all this time. I just buy what I really like. Wait, can that be a theme?
