For many years, I have used a Tag Heuer Kirium. In parallel, I acquired the elegant Tissot Couturier for business events.
Soon turning 35y, I am looking for my next bracelet watch for the next 10 years and I need your advise.
I have read through the forum, looked for multiple makers and concluded that the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra fitted my criteria ... but it is beyond my budget, even on the second hand market.
My criteria are:
- Diameter between 39 and 41 mm for my small wrist
- Height below 14 mm
- Steel bracelet
- Shower resistant = Water resistant 10 ATM (100m) or more with screw-down crown
I don't like to remove my watch every day and like to shower!
- No external rotating bezel
- Budget below $2000/1500
- somehow classy
- Date, Day and/or GMT
- curved sapphire
Out of my extensive search, I found only few alternatives:
Mido Belluna Gent - the most classy of the alternatives
Certina DS First - on the forum
Sinn 856 UTC
Victorinox Swiss Army Officers Mechanical
I also liked a lot those that do not fit the screw-down crown criteria
Certina DS 1
Union Glashuette Belisar GMT
Tag Heuer Carrera twin time
What would you advise ? Do you have a preference, an alternative ?
