This is not the most special or expensive watch in my collection, but I wear it every day and it never failed me. Simple and clean dial, rather small case, automatic movement and well.. that’s pretty much it.
I understand that this particular style might not be exactly what you would like to wear daily but I would suggest taking at the old Seiko 5 line. As much as I’m not a huge fan of the new Seiko 5s, the old ones are quite cool and inexpensive. What I liked about them is that every model was different so the dial, the hands and the case were unique. The new line of Seikos is more uniform. One case design, same hands and very similar faces. It is the color and the texture that changes… and to me that is not enough compared to the unique look of the old line of Seiko 5
