Best Watch Dial Sub-$500

Good Evening, 

I love dials and I am looking for recommendations of the best dial for watches under $500.  I'm open to any style but would prefer not to get a dress watch.  Thanks in advance.  The community here is amazing.

Perhaps a seiko samurai or orient sun and moon?

William, perhaps one of these:

This used to be under $500, now just over, but can be had for less if you can find someone selling. Baltic Bi-Compax Blue Gilt

Or how about the new Lorier Neptune IV, currently for preorder. You have to see this one, or at least watch some videos to appreciate the dial.

Image

Or if you want to go mainstream, the Seiko Matcha dial is stunning at it’s price point.

I love this one. It is the PaulinXAnordain Neo. Great way to get an Anordain look without 2 year waiting list, for a little more than $500.

Lastly, cannot forget about Brew. You likely have to sign up wait for the next batch to be released, but I love the Brew Metric.

i never own one of these but for a non dress watch w a pattern dial or color dial it looks nice for 500 usd.

most nice dials are in dress watch category though like the seiko cocktail or enamel dial.

The #boldr venture earth has a dial made of recyled titanium.

The Seiko cocktail time has beautiful dials at that price. Some are quite dressy, but some are more subtle.

Brew metric for sure I have the retro and it’s entrancing at sub 5

however if you can find one any studio underd0g watch will smoke all others for dial in the price point (my avatar for example)
