    ADVICE: Seamaster vs. Moonwatch

    I went to my local AD today and asked about trading in a couple of watches (wanted to see if it might be less hassle then selling online even if it is a small loss). He said he would give me more on trade-in if I used it as credit towards a new watch.

    So I looked around the store and narrowed it down to a blue Seamaster (James Bond like) and a moonwatch (both on bracelet). With the trades, I could get the Seamaster for an extra $1000 or the Moonwatch for an extra $1700.

    I'm torn...

    Heart
    I might be in the minority on this forum, but I actually like the look of the Seamaster better with its brilliant blue dial and scalloped bezel. It also has an automatic movement with its advanced co-axial design.

    Head
    The Moonwatch is so iconic. I already have two divers (a Sub-date and a Breitling SuperOcean II), so the Seamaster might be a bit redundant. But the Moonwatch is $700 more.

    If you had the same choice, what would you do?

    Here are links for your easy reference:

    - Moonwatch https://www.omegawatches.com/watches...1130423001005/

    Tough choice. I think I'd go for the Speedy.

    Speedy hands down, but you're not me. The other route I would go is to flip the superocean (not a fan) and get the seamaster. That seamaster blue is something else.

    I'd prefer to go with my heart.

    Forget "iconic", and forget "redundant". Neither matters.

    You like the Seamaster better, and it's also cheaper? Unless you're trying to please someone other than yourself, that's your choice. Seamaster. Easy! :)

    With jewelry, always go with "heart", not "head"

    I do like the SuperOcean, but I can't flip it even I wanted to because it was a gift...

    I'd go with the Seamaster because I have a Speedy.

    It depends on if I felt the need to get the watch wet. If so, obviously the Seamaster. If not, I'd go for the Speedmaster Professional sapphire sandwich.
