Completely clueless on the subject and would appreciate suggestions. Basically I'm looking for a durable and refined watch with a minimalist design. Something with a date indicator would be great though. I couldn't care less for movement engineering as long as it is accurate; and the cheaper the maintenance, the better. Outer designs and looks would be the main concern. So far I'm most interested to Movado but the consensus from the previous threads suggests that there are better alternatives available. Something from harder metals like titanium or tungsten carbide (like Movado Valor's) would be interesting too. Any advice, or alternatively directions to helpful threads from some timepiece forums, would be much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.
