i would suggest you gents divert some of your watch budgets towards prescription eyeglasses.

My eyesight is just fine for everything else.  You may not have a similar issue and that is fine.

Any ideas on a thin ( <9mm) automatic dress watch?

 

Alternatively, a thin quartz dress watch?

I'd go with the black dial. I personally think white/silver dials look better with a simpler dial design.

What diameter and price range?

Max Bill Junghans or Stowa Antea maybe.

Black it is, thanks guys. Was also debating the 38 vs 42 but tried it on this morning and 38 was just too small for me, 42 seemed a bit big but casual watch I guess

AD would not budge on retail pricing whatsoever ffffuuuu.gif

Didn't as it would have came out to $626 with tax, vs the $389 at Jomashop. Prefer to buy in store as it's easier if any issues but can't do that big a price difference

I would go silver. IMO looks better for casual and for little formal.

Funny thing: after reading your previous post I jumped over to Jomashop to check retail/Joma's price. I'd have a hard time paying retail when it can be had for $389 delivered. That's 2/3 the price!

I guess the negotiating is done on higher end watches: the subs, navitimer's, reverso's, etc.

Yeah my thoughts exactly. I don't mind paying extra for shoes at LeatherSoul say since it's resulted in discounts on other pairs that shouldn't have been but this was not worth it. Don't even know if I will really use the watch much

]I have seen both those watches and they are very nice.
The only problem was the price range is pushing in to plus $1000 range.

A 38mm - 40mm is the size I want.

Dumb question but I'm planning on putting a shell nato onto the watch and was wondering if I needed to buy new spring bars? Or can I use the ones with the original strap? And if I need them what thickness is best?
