    1. Thin bezel
    2. Thin crown
    3. Tapered lugs
    4. Small case (32.5mm, to be precise)
    5. Train track markers
    6. 12 deck-style numerals
    7. "Extra heavy spade" hands*
    8. Manual movement

    How close can what the modern market offer come to 8 out of 8?

    I'm picturing something from Longiness or Hamilton but in ladies version.

    Stowa:



    Junghans:





    Rodina:



    But it does have a small subdial. And I actually like the subdial on this watch. It gives it a little minimalistic character.

    This is kind of close on the Dial, but not on the hands the Longines 1938:



    If you like the Rodina and you want a bit of lume an a lacquered white dial the Topper NOMOS may be the thing:


    Speedbird III:


    Stowa Antea:


    Stowa Partitio:


    And the Stowa Marine Automatik:


    This probably comes the closest.
