Hi all,

I’ve been looking for a new dress watch in $150-$300 price range but also will look stand out on my wrist. I like classic design with Roman numeral, and 1 or 2 complications will be perfect for me. I just saw this new brand called Alvieri on Kickstarter and really impressed with their moon phase edition.




I really dig it, especially the moon phase edition. It is offered at $199. What do you think? Or maybe you have any other suggestions for affordable dress watch? Thanks.

The purpose of a dress watch is to NOT stand out on your wrist.

That being said a Boschett Legacy might just be your ticket if you can live without the moonphase? The Boschett is also a mechanical, if that matters to you.

I got what you meant. But I really like moonphase complication so I would prefer a watch with that complication. What do you think about Alvieri watch I mentioned above? or maybe do you have any other suggestions? Thanks..

I think the watch is nice looking and for $199 with a sapphire crystal is a deal, but I have a couple of questions, where is this watch assembled, and are you one of their representatives?

I just signed up for two of the Alvieri, so obviously I was impressed. Nice design; looks to be good quality;sapphire;very reasonable price. There's always some risk with a Kickstarter watch, but you wouldn't be risking much.

$200 is chump change to some, and an extravagance to others.

Adriatica also make some cool moonphase watches - check them out
Thanks for the recommendation. I've just checked it and Adriatica A8134.1233QF looks very nice. But I can't find the price. Is it on my $150-$300 budget? It is chrono and Swiss made. I assume that it will be hard to get in my budget.

I have one moon phase watch and I relly like the looks of the complication but the one thing I hate is when it has been sitting for a while and I want to wear the watch but in a hurry it is a hassle having to set the correct phase of the moon, the month, day and date.

Nothing wrong with resurrecting old threads, imo. I've been caught off guard not noticing the dead before, I better at killing a thread than raising one.

I had never considered that.
That would drive me crazy and find little wrist time, unless it was that particularly stunning piece you've presented.

Thanks I like the aesthetics of the watch but it rarely gets any wrist time for the reason specified.

I do like the quick set date features available today, even then I just prefer not to see a date on a dial, for the vast majority at least. Some seem to make the dial though, few they are (to me).
