Hey everyone, thank you very much for the suggestions. After a lot of deliberation, I ended up ordering the Tissot Visodate.
I really like the clean aesthetic and vintage style. Thanks again!
500 is a very workable budget, and while some people are recommending Quartz, you have the option to go for a mechanical movement. The weight difference is usually negligible and by having a strap instead of bracelet, the weight will be more manageable.
I would recommend the Tissot Visodate. It's a watch that is frequently praised for its looks, and it holds one of the last ETA workhorse movements you can get on the cheap. It has classic styling and is very easy to read. Also, at 440$, you have wiggle room in the budget to get a black strap as well.
Hope this helps
What about a Tissot Visodate?
Not sure what you mean by the minute marker.
Have you considered the Tissot Visodate?
I'm getting married soon, and I'm thinking about purchasing a semi-nice watch to wear on the date and mark the occasion! This wouldn't be a gift; it would just be for myself - and I'm still a student, so I can't afford all that much. Recommendations outside of the newest buying guide for a dress watch in the sub-$1000 range would be appreciated!
Right now, I'm looking strongly at two options:
Tissot Visodate - Pretty classic.
Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece - I don't know anything about Maurice Lacroix, but I really really love the look of this watch. Given that it's twice the price as the Tissot for what I believe is still an ETA movement, though, I'm not entirely sure I can justify it.
Thanks very much for your help!

I'm looking for a <$500 piece, preferably with a simplistic (perhaps bauhaus) design. I've narrowed my search to the following five options:
I think the Kent Wang is very classy, however, I'm not sure about build quality/the fact they aren't known for making watches. Same goes to Tsovet. The Tissot is a safe option, just not sure about the logo.
Thoughts on these five and/or other suggestions are much appreciated.
Tissot Men's TIST0194301603101 Heritage Visodate Stainless Steel Automatic Watch with Brown Leather Band - $314
It's not really a higher tier, but if you're looking for a Swiss movement, I would recommend either a Tissot Visodate or something from the Hamilton Jazzmaster line. This one in black is my personal favorite, but there quite a few different styles and colors which all look really classy.
Here's an album of my Tissot Visodate if you want to see some more pictures: [link]
Like I said, I would put these watches on the same tier as the Cocktail Time, but there are people who really value a Swiss movement (even if it's ETA), so it's something to think about.
I bought it on Amazon. The seller that I bought it from (Teelys) was fulfilled by Amazon, so I felt it pretty comfortable with it. I originally wanted to buy it from Jomashop, but the delivery range was too long -- I send packages to my office instead of my home and I was afraid of it getting sent over the weekend.
I just did something like this so I'll just copy and paste, if you don't mind :)
"Some off the cuff ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) suggestions:
Seiko Cocktail Time This one is flashier than it sounds like you want but Jesus Christ is it beautiful..
Just to name a few!"
I'll second the Tissot Visodate. It's about $200 below your budget, as well. Use some of the money you're saving to grab a bracelet you like for it.
They make a black Visodate with a great Milanaise bracelet that I've always loved.
Tissot vissodate? Has dates on the dial. Will dip under $400 quite often, near 350ish
edit: maybe Seiko's cocktail time?
I've never been a huge fan of Roman numerals as I think that dress watches look nicer when they are a little more clean. The visodate is a little above your price range but is beautiful. A Seiko from their SARB line would fit the bill, or more specifically the Cocktail time. Hamilton makes great watches but many are well above your price range. If you look around you can find a few that are closer to what you want to spend. Good luck

Well if the budget is 700 pounds you can get into category of very nice watches with automatic movement no need for quartz unless you really want quartz.
Here are some really good autos in price range you set.
