I really like blank faced, black watches. The problem is I'm having a hard time searching for them because I don't know the proper keywords. Does anyone know of any watches like the two below, or could anyone suggest a proper keyword when google searching this type of minimalist watch? Many thank-yous in advance.


----Movado Men's "Sapphire" Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch----



----GUESS Watch, Men's Stainless Steel Bracelet G95374G----



I also really like this cheapo Marc Ecko watch - just something about it that I can't put my finger on.

----Marc Ecko Men's Watch E95012G1----

Ugly watches, I'm afraid.

Better your finger than your wrist.

I have the same watch, but kept the original tan canvas strap. It's been a great watch, and you dressed it up nicely! A few of the favorites from my collection below: Vintage Citizen Automatic Chronograph Seiko 5 Superior Automatic Vintage Enicar Automatic Vintage Bulova Accutron with the 218 Tuning Fork movement Ball Engineer II Roman (sorry for the different sized pics, some I've taken and others are from the seller)

Obs, did you ever wish you had chosen the larger diameter Nomos Club?

Trying to decide.

I have a very similar watch, from the 1930's -- it belonged to my grandfather. I also have an Extra-Fort (steel, time and date only) which was given to me a few years ago by my parents. Eberhard is an underrated maker, I think, even though they just use (modified) ETA movements. I think they did introduce a few interesting patents, though.

Yes, the watch is in fact a 30s re-edition - and the name is the incredibly shitty "Replica".

Please, show your Eberhards!

Crappy iPhone pic (just noticed that I need to adjust the date!) of the Extra-Fort:



The 1930's one is at home, can't remember if here or in Italy. I'll try and take a picture in due course. The lugs are much smaller as I recall, almost like wires. Both the glass and the back of the case can be opened, and the inside of the case is signed.

37mm

Yes, the Calatravas all seem to be increasing (while the movements stay the same size). It's a shame.

That's a gem - thanks!

Nope, definitely not. The 38.5mm version is ideal for my (7 inch diameter) wrist. Like all Nomos, though not to the extent of the Tangente types, the Club wears large compared to its size - and don't forget the lugs are very long on this perfect wristwatch.
