    That looks very nice. I was looking at a few SeaGull models to add a new watch to my collection until I can replace my Daytona.

    I'm very happy with it. And quite astounded with the quality. I mean, domed saphire crystal glass - front and back, genuine moonphase and chronograph, ivory dial with lovely details and the beautiful ST19 movement.

    And Sea-gull know that they are doing. They are by far the largest producer of automatic movements in the world. And of course they also produce a double tourbillon...which would not belong in this thread :D

    Does anyone have any suggestion for a conservative, dressier automatic? Preferably one that would look good on a leather band for a pretty formal/stuffy business environment? Ideally looking to stay sub $150.

    Nah, It's got the right design, but they don't look or feel as nice in real life. Kinda flimsy and plasticy when you compare it to a more substantial watch. I know you are looking for a simple design, but there are better ones out there that also do the simple design right. These quartz Bulovas feel like they came out of a Chinese factory and got Bulova stamped on them.

    Venus 175 knock-off, nicely executed. Always loved the V175. Been reading some good things about the Seagull. And besides, I am a sucker for a nice column wheel chrono...
