Enthusiasts,

I am in search of a possibly perfect "dress" watch. It seems that I have a problem in which I invent in my head what I want and then try to hunt it down. Sadly, I rarely seem to find what is in my head. A personal problem I know. Anyway...

I am looking for a White dial, blue font watch. In a perfect world features may include: mechanical (autos are great too), expedition back, day/date and a power reserve indicator.

These are two of my absolute favorite watches in the world that I do not YET own.

I truly enjoy looking up new watches and learning more about them, so any close suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for giving a gander and any time spent replying.

Please forgive me if I refer to the case back wrong, this is still a new and vast world. Showing my green side to the world I guess. It is the best term I know.

For mechanical being an auto. I differentiate the two in my head. One needs a good turn and the other is natural.

As for the kitty? That's why I am taking all suggestions. I typically pay for what I search. Not search for what I want to pay. If that is rational at all. Some journeys just take longer than others to fulfill.

Ideally no more than a couple to a few thousand. I just picked up my first serious watch, a Sinn 857 UTC (which was huge to me), but I know it is only scratching the service to others.

Exhibition or display back. And yes auto is mechanical and handwinding is mechanical as well and both need to be wounded.

Yours sounded really cool though - For next time it's called an exhibition back, or just display caseback. :)

How about a Davosa ?

Goes for silly money , but can be found for reasonable - I love this watch and have a couple in the same range , but ownership of this one has eluded me so far

Or maybe take a look at some Epos - EPOS - Artistry in Watchmaking - Swiss Made Mechanical Watches

Two really strong showings from the get go. I am also starting to look at chronographs, so that was a nice surprise. I am always amazed at the speed of the forum.

Thanks for a little education too.

Hmm, I've been looking for less expensive/easier to find alternatives to the UN MM Chronometer. Some really great suggestions in this thread, I'll keep an eye on it.
I love this watch, but even preowned (when they come up) are a bit out of my range at around the $4k mark.

There's also this version, with blue applied indicies.

Longines Power Reserve or Longines retrograde. The markers are black but the hands are blue. Sorry, no pics as I write from the phone.

I have the Ball B&O you posted. Great watch. The Sinn someone posted is high on my list and that Dornbluth is very nice. Can't lose with any of those.

Mido and Epos also make some nice white dialed models that are not overtly expensive as other options too.
