Would love to find something with a leather strap without a second hand on it. Does anybody have any recommendations?

I thought this was going to be about amputees.

First post on here but I hope I can be of some help.

I haven't seen too many watches without a seconds hand but I do remember a couple. The Hamilton Jazzmaster Slim comes in 40mm and 43mm and there's also the vintage JLC Ultra Thin. I also think some Panerai models are without the seconds hand as well.

Nothing too serious...$200? I honestly wouldn't mind something in the styling of a basic Timex just without a seconds hand.

I mentioned this watch in a thread yesterday, so I wore it today:



Jaeger Le-Coultre Master Ultra Thin. My grail dress watch.

Exactly the style I want! However, a bit over budget.

A vintage Tissot manual wind thin without a sweep seconds hand SS in steel could likely be had on the bay for under $50. Solid 14K would probably go in the $250 range.

Vintage Audemars Piguet rectangular without SS can be had for around 1400 or so.

A Waltham Premier with a nice 21J Riverside movement vintage rectangular without SS probably under $75 in gold filled and around $250 in solid gold.

Vintage Girard Perregaux GF without SS probably around $125 or so. Solid gold, around $300.

Happy hunting!

Better yet, no minute hand either.
