Happy early father's day to all the dad's out there!

My lady has been asking me what I want for father's day and I am really struggling with coming up with anything. At this point in life we make enough money to buy the reasonably affordable things I want, so everything left is just expensive... you know like a new Tesla Model X

I got to thinking, I haven't gotten a new watch in some time, and I had been saving for a Glycine Airman (Purist), but I've lost interest since Invicta took over. That money has since been spent on other "needs," actually.

Well, I'm thinking I do want a new watch. A Pilots watch. I want your help, my fellow WIS!

Specs:
- Eco or Kinetic quartz is fine, or Mechanical (auto or hand wind).
- If Mechanical, No day or date complications (keep it simple).
- 24-hour would be awesome, but here are few in this price range I'm interested in.
- GMT hand would be nice to keep track of another time zone
- I'm not big into Chronographs, so that is unnecessary.

A few I like, am not tied to, and/or are out of my price range. Maybe this will give some idea on taste.

Honestly, I've wanted a Blue Angel since I was a teenager.

I'm looking for something interesting, can be business casual appropriate, and casual appropriate.


... the other thought, just get another G-shock with analog dial that can handle the kids and activity.

My son in Finland is about as gaa gaa as one can get over his
Blue Angels. Me? Dial is waaay too busy IMO!!!
I have 4 Citizens. None with busy dials.
"Never the twain will meet" sez Samuel Clements.

Son's beater is a Suunto, Finland's watch.
