Look at the Timex Originals collection (specifically the early 1900’s, 1950’s, and 1970’s inspired watches.) The blue dial 70’s watch has shades of the Tag Heuer Monaco, and could be had for less than $60. And that’s “could” in the past tense. These things are tough to find.
An easier to find and perhaps slightly better looking option is the Timex T Series Perpetual Calendar. Simple face, textured crown, perfect low 40s mm diameter, and get a load of that sextant shaped contrasting day & date cutout. Gotta love the day window heading North/South while the date runs horizontally below. Looks like it fell out of the originals collection, but it’s in a different wing on the Timex Website.
*Warning: The white dial isn’t available on the Timex site, and they were at one point being fulfilled by Amazon. As of now it looks like it’s just a buy from a 3rd party through Amazon, which can get a little iffy. So be warned because, y’know, nobody wants to buy a… counterfeit Timex? Sounds weird to say, but still…
