    My current watch rotation is mostly a Seiko SNZH53, an Orient Black Mako, and an SNZJ5.

    I'd been looking for more of a classic styled watch and while on the search ran across these watches: Junkers Bauhaus, Mido Baroncelli, and a Seiko SARB021

    However I'm currently leaning towards a 44mm Hamilton Viewmatic with a black dial on a brown strap:

    ATM my intention is a black dial on a brown strap as I think it's a very versatile watch... I'm looking for feedback, thoughts, and suggestions regarding this future purchase. Thanks!

    How versatile have you found the watch to be in terms of pairing with casual / business casual / suited outfits?

    From a versatility standpoint, you really couldn't do much better than the 44mm viewmatic. It is clean enough for more formal attire, but looks fine with casual. It is also highly water resistant and durable so you don't have to baby it. I would highly recommend.
