I'm looking for a men's digital watch that is simple, slim and ergonomic.
I don't care much for style. For most of my life I've used a basic Casio F-91W
which has all the functions I need.
Yet I'm not entirely immune to occasional pangs of embarrassment around meeting tables, and I have to admit that while my watch is adequate, it's not something I love or that really reflects my values.
What am I looking for?
First, it has to be digital. (I know that eliminates 90% of the field of well-designed watches.) Second, my arms are skinny and I work at a keyboard all day. Chunky watches look ridiculous on me, and are uncomfortable when my arms rest on a desk. Even my little Casio is chunkier than I'd like it to be. Metal is out.
Third, I work in user experience and care about ergonomics. I hate how most watches compromise usability for style. I value legibility and comfort. I like how some sports watches have large numerals, large buttons, and are sometimes even angled to be readable at an oblique glance. But sports watches all tend to be as pointlessly chunky as 80s boom boxes. While style is not my first concern, I do care about attractive typography, visual balance and colour.
Finally, functions. All I care about is hours, minutes, seconds, date and day. Stopwatch would be nice but is not essential.
So, does a watch like this exist? I consider it so unlikely that money wouldn't be an object.
