Can you suggest an elegant yet simple watch for a professional woman?

I'm trying to find a watch for a friend that is elegant but simple (so no diamond-encrusted cases). She is a professional woman with classic, simple fashion style looking for something to wear to work. Her one stated dislike is two-tone watches, like the ones that pair stainless steel and gold. A bunch of us are planning to chip in and her husband is planning to subsidize this purchase, so money isn't a big deal - he suggested something roughly between $500 and $3000. I don't know anything about watches - I'm still wearing the Timex I got fifteen years ago, so I don't even know where we should be looking!
Right now we're considering the Ebel Classic Wave
. Can you suggest any other watches? Related question: the Ebel website says not to buy Ebel from any merchant online in no uncertain terms. Does anyone have any opinions on the advisability of purchasing nice watches online?
