my first watch to wear with a suit - Page 3
If you have a bunch of them or don't wear it every day. Heaven forbid the crown is screwed tight after fixing the time.
a used one.
hmm like a non chronograph iwc 3-5 years old or vintage. I'm not super familiar with iwc but look for something called pilot but not "big pilot" or there are some plain ones that are named akin to vacation spots.
today I'm wearing an automatic seiko 5 with a leather strap. I don't think they are very expensive prob sub $500 like most seikos. Kinda looks like a rolex air king, which you could also prob find used in or at ur budget.
If you have a little wiggle room in terms of size, you can find the 41mm Baume & Mercier Clifton for around your budget
Also for a classic look, there's the Oris Big Crown Original Pointer Date at about half your budgeted price
I like the idea. Also a chrono. Maybe not for formal wear but for business. If you want something about you to draw attention, why not your watch? Understood this can come across as douchey (word?) especially if the watch is oversized but if done right....

+1 on Nomos
Given your price range, nothing will beat Nomos Glashutte. Unlike many companies listed in this thread, Nomos Glashutte is a manufacturer (it makes its own movements) and produces affordable watches of distinct minimalist design that is rooted deeply into the company's philosophy. Moreover, the watches are quite slender so you can easily wear them with a suit or a more casual attire.
And here is the best part: Because the brand is not as well known as say Omega, you can get pre-loved specimen for a song. Check out Timezone.com.
