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
