Muhle-Glashutte makes an interesting Moonphase. More sporty than dressy.

Not going to weigh in on this specific question, but will share that I prefer a manual wind for my dress watch for the exact reason you mentioned. I wind it every day, so that it's ready when I need it to be. Then again, is it really that hard to set an automatic dress watch when you decide to wear it?I’m sure this has been discussed, but I’m wondering how heretical it would be to opt for the Tank LC with quartz vs mechanical? I really like the yellow gold and think it might be nice to have a watch that - given it won’t be a daily and I like it primarily for its design - is just always going and enables a much wider service interval. Or… should I just get the mechanical in rose because, well, because it’s just a better movement? Thoughts?
Narrow margins of difference are the backbone of this thread, though, so...yeah?Not going to weigh in on this specific question, but will share that I prefer a manual wind for my dress watch for the exact reason you mentioned.

Nothing better than a communist poet lamenting Lenin's death to write ad copy that Rolex could use 100 years later. The copyright is almost certainly expired. But until the AD has a Rolex GMT available, I guess I will continue to be part of the Richemont trash attached to the side of the (Rolex/Patek) craft.
Aren't you going to law school for fun? If Foo could survive law school in a Big Pilot, I think a Doxa will be OK. Apologies if I am remembering the wrong poaster.Does anyone have experience with the Doxa 600 collection - wearability is my concern, as it’s a chunky 14.15mm thick.
On the shortlist for a bum about watch for Uni.
Your comment caused me to google it and learned they test the water resistance with additional margin, so 50m is almost more like a minimum. All this hand-wringing about the rain or washing hands with the Speedy (at least a recent one) by Internet dorks is unbearable.I just wish the WR was a little higher for a daily wearer. The new ones, with the METAS certification, I would feel more comfortable with.
I actually thought the 1861 speedmaster was WR to 3 bar, not 5 bar, so I kind of take back my comment. I will stick with my comment re: the 5226.
Whether you end up practicing law or otherwise, you’ve got a talent for understatement. And fine taste In watches. If I recall you were also looking at that gorgeous Tank Normale with the bracelet. Good luck in your studies. Upon passing the bar or whatever it’s called in your jurisdiction, you can gleefully join the ranks of the many degenerate lawyers on this thread. Most of whom seemingly don’t work very hard. And I don’t even frequent other corners of this forum.Yup, that’s me.
