Hi chaps. Just come back from holiday overseas and I have managed to lose my wristwatch. So I am looking for another. The trouble is that what is available is overwhelming. I tried looking at a watch forum but again the range of topics is overwhelming. Maybe someone can chip in and help out. Part of the problem is that I do not know the lingo so what follows will be a bit clumsy. My preferences are:
Quartz movement. I would not consider a mechanical or automatic watch.
It must be easily legible - more on that topic to come.
I do not want roman or arabic numerals.
Must have a second hand - or is that a third hand? Also I don't like the look of those tiny second hands.
Preferably no date, and certainly no day of the week function. I think these are called 'complications'. And what is it with these watches that have the phase of the moon?
Face should be high contrast. My last watch was a Citizen 'Work Watch'. It had a dark blue face with stout white hands.
Prefer simple hands. Hands that are arrows or look like a skinny leaf are not to my taste.
I think the general style I am looking for is a Dress Watch. I am not too fussed about that, but it has to look good as I have to deal with signing and witnessing documents. It will be visible to clients.
Leather strap or at least the ability to change the strap.
£: 100 or so. Maybe more if the right thing came along.
Is that too much to ask? Any help or pointers in the right direction would be great. Remember, I know as much about this as you know about 15th Century Indian rope dancing. I did have a squiz in the local jewelers. So I think I am going to have to shop online. TIA
