That's the same model I wear, except mine has gold edges and hands. Got it off eBay. smile.gif

I think that is ridiculous. A Submariner looks great under a suit or tuxedo. So does my Omega Planet Ocean 42mm.

While I don't agree that all metal bracelets are a poor choice, I don't think dive watches look good with a suit, and do in fact approach ridiculousness when paired with a tuxedo.  Though I think the Sub and PO are terrific watches in their own right.  Just my opinion / preference.  Some guys go sockless with a suit and think that looks just great, whereas I feel there is a complete disconnect in comparative formality.

+1. James Bond may do it but don't try this at home unless you have James Bond's looks.

Oh, I never knew the number referred to the size. I thought it was a model number.

Stowa Antea is the watch I wear with suits. That and Nomos are great choices and affordable within your budget.

Don't buy a quartz watch, you'll be regretting it in a year when you've expanded your watch horizons.

winders are a pain too. all the cycles and rotations oye..

A movado might be fun but OP's workplace doesn't read as "creative atmosphere".

You don't need a winder just because you have a mechanical watch.
