No date, no complications, time only watches. Post your pics or faves here!

Hey all, after 3 decades of watch ownership I've realized that my favorites have been the simple, time only watches. I currently have a Sub 14060 as my beater. Looking to expand my collection (and get rid of my other watches with complications) so I'm open to suggestions for other simple watches.

Post yours or your favorites here if you have them.

Canít get any simpler than the Date Only. Who really cares what time it is anyway?

I also like a time only watch. Something about the simplicity and look of the dial.

How do you like your 7027 ?
I've been thinking of getting one and I'm on the fence.

You should get one! The Tradition line best represent Breguet, IMO. It is 38mm, measured bezel to bezel, not 37mm as advertised (they probably measure the coin edge case.) Wears very well. It is also well-priced on the pre-own market. A lot of watch for the money (relatively). The only potential drawback: dial is small. I still have good eye sight :-) and therefore it is a non-issue for me.

Then there is all the details about the Breguet signature design elements in this watch, from the star wheels to the shock absorber to the frosted dial/movement plate

Thanks for your thoughts. It's been a model I've been eyeing for some time. Think it definitely represents great value on the grey market.

Seriously, what a great thread. I love to see the range of designs for a non-complicated watch (although some entries here are actually complicated...).

You caught me there; I tried to sneak those two in! But I did withhold this one though. At least the front side qualifies :-)

With a Reverso you get my pardon!

By the way, you have a lovely collection, congratulations.
