I'm looking for an inexpensive everyday watch with specific characteristics:

analog

white face

"white" metal (brushed aluminum, silver, stainless steel)

18mm lug size

Something along the lines of a Timex Weekender or Easy Reader, or in the range of Timex, Casio, Seiko, Invicta, etc.

I know this seems backwards but I got a nice NATO strap as a gift but none of the watches I currently have are appropriate for it. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on it but I'd like it to be nice enough to be worn to an office job (though mostly invisible under a shirt of jacket sleeve).  Not looking for showing bling; looking for classic, timeless, subtle.

I know this is ultra-specific but, if you have any ideas, help a brutha out.

Thanks!

I've been consistently impressed by the Seiko 5 series.

This is an 18mm lug, automatic movement.

Nice! Thanks!

I agree. Seiko 5's are great watches at a pretty affordable price.

Check out Orient watches.  Lots of different styles.  High quality movement for a reasonable price.

try a vintage Seiko. or spend a bit more and look for vintage Omegas

Nato bands also look best on divers IMO

What Would You Do?

Let's say you're a freshman in high school. On your first day, you meet up with your counselor for the first time with some other kids with the same counselor. You do some ice breakers and you learn a little bit about each other. Suddenly, you notice a Nebraska Cornhuskers lanyard that your counselor is wearing and since you are a complete idiot and from Colorado, you strongly condemn the Nebraska team (and it is warranted because, many Nebraska fans are extremely annoying, and because you are…See More
