All great feedback guys, and much appreciated. I am now leaning heavily towards this:
Fortis Flieger Professional Chronograph Automatic Men's Watch 705.21.11 L.01 - Aviatis - Fortis - Watches - Jomashop
Any feedback on the best place to buy? Jomashop seems to have best pricing right now, many of the other stores charge way more...
Is there much demand for the bracelet? I could take it off and sell it on eBay as brand new out of the box. Difference in price is only $100 and I have a brand new black pilot strap that will work perfectly on this watch. What would be a reasonable price to ask?
I agree with many of the comments, the case and bezel on the Sinn is very cool, but I like the dial, crown, heritage of the Fortis.
