Thian,
I hardly wear or even own dress watches, but this one is very important to me. My brother gave it to me and I had it on my wrist on many trips around the world. I abused it a lot (as you can see), and it's not even Japananese: vintage Omega Constellation, Calibre 751 I believe. Still running strong, but I hate to change the day and date, there's no quick way to do it.

Who's Peter? Maybe that is your name when you are incognito with your hat on? :)

Here's my favorite. SARB021. Although it is probably large by vintage standard.

Old question: what is a dress watch. The watches above look more like sport watches to me. ::)
The only Japanese watch I own, that I might call a dress watch could be this handwinder:


But following your definition of a dress watch, that would be one of my nicest ones:


Cheers,

Axel

[b]Love the story and the watch! I had inherited a Constellation from my Dutch stepfather, his daily watch from the 70s...he was a printer and hobbyist Mr. Fixit...so it was really wabi-ed. Had it restored here in Japan with new original crystal and crown!

I have some watches with no quick date adjust too....so sometimes I sit watching a movie and change the dates! haha!

[b]Well, we all know you prefer dials with no dates and number markers! ....and your huge collection will attest to that!
So you should look for this Japanese dress watch from the Dolce line.....caliber 8N41, 18ct gold, sapphire crystal.....

Vintage - My first dress watch given to me by my wife celebrating my first promotion at first job after graduating from Florida State University. It has run continuously for 28 years only stopping for brief battery changes.


Favorite current dress watch which is a grail keeper:

Beautiful, Thian!

Not exactly the dolce line, but I'm currently desperately waiting for my first Lassale to arrive (has been shipped 3 weeks ago - maybe hold up by customs).

Meanwhile I use this one to represent a dressy quartz (4110-5008):


Cheers,
