Minimalist watches aren't known for having a lot of complexity. Day dates are uncommon. Moon phases and GMT functions are both non-minimalist in nature.
However, there are a few minimalist chronographs with dials that are simultaneously busy and clean. We'll go through that in more detail later.
The Bauhaus School of Art was a Weimar, Germany-based art, craft, and architecture school. Although it was only open for 14 years (1919–1933), it had a lasting impact on architecture and design.
The Bauhaus School's motto was "form follows function." In essence, a thing had to perform what it was supposed to do first and foremost. Then, the style and flair could incorporate as long as it didn't interfere with the purpose.
Those Bauhaus rules continue to inspire many watches today. They're plain and straightforward while also being easy to read and understand. Numerals, typically printed simply dials in the Bauhaus font—intended mainly for the school's own needs such as letterhead and correspondence—can be found.

SWISSMATIC TISSOT AT ALL TIMES
The Swiss-made every time from Tissot delivers a lot for your money at a meager price. This simplistic beauty is powered by an ETA Swissmatic watch with a 72-hour battery reserve that is amazing for the price. It is a simple design except for the date complexity.
One of the watch's most exciting features is its display case back, which is unusual for watches at this price point.
BAMBINO V3 GENERATION 2
The Orient Bambino could very well be the most excellent affordable Japanese-made minimalist watch on the market. The V3 Generation 2's clean, minimalist design and excellent dimensions demonstrate why it is the reigning champion.
