I am a devotee of the dress watch. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate all types of watches, but there's something special about the elegant simplicity of the dress watch (I would say "timeless," but that's not a good descriptor for a watch). It's the archetype that most speaks to me. They are available at all prices, and look good with all sorts of attire.

I am one of the Dress Watch Desperados, and I hope you join us.

Special thanks to @Mediocre for the idea for the thread.

I have always been a stainless steel sports watch guy. Never had more than a couple watches in my "collection", a diver, a chronograph mostly.

I recently cut my teeth on a smaller vintage dress watch. It disappears under a dress cuff, and I actually find myself wearing with with more casual dress as well. It kind has me thinking of adding another dark dial dress watch to my small collection.

I wouldn't say either one is pure dress - especially the Seiko with its day/date - but they're the closest I've got right now.

Gorgeous pieces everyone! I've experimented with GO Senator PanoDate, blue sixties, PanoLunar and also ALS 36 mm YG 1815, 38.5 mm RG 1815, 40 mm WG 1815 and WG u/d. While I appreciate dress watches, over time I've learned I'm just not a dress watch guy. So these days, this is the closest I will come to that category:
