This may well be a little left field, but when I was looking for a holiday watch I found myself drawn to this: the MeisterSinger Metris. As long as I get to the airport in time (whenever they let me do that again) I really only need a vague idea of what time it is, so this rather relaxed and lazy single pointer works very well for me. In addition it has a date which I can actually read thanks to the cyclops, and it goes well with a variety of straps. Oh, and it is an automatic, has a screwdown crown and is 200 m water resistant. 38mm but wears much more like ca. 40mm.
RRP under £1500, but
