If it's not a sport watch...
If it's not a tool watch...
If it's not a pilot watch...
Then what is it?

I know @ManOnTime has strong opinions on what classifies as a "dress watch," but that is the only category this one will fit.

With the central seconds and date complication this fits sport better than it does dress.

I'll debate.

Lack of lume + Low water resistance + polished case = more dress than sport.

50m resistance is 20m more than any dress watch needs. Also, 41mm.

I dub this a "spress" watch.

Haha! I think a spress watch is like a WFH outfit you don when you have a video call (athleisure-ish yet a bit dressy for the camera).

Like wearing a dress shirt and a tie with athletic shorts.
