I‘m hoping someone can help me out with my decision.
I have been ready to purchase the Jeager Locoultre Navy Seal Alarm watch after much research. I have always wanted a JLC watch as they are known for their excellent craftsmanship and complications.
In the last couple of days though, I have come across many who talk very highly of Blancpains Fifty Fathoms watch. The problem is that I have not been able to see or try on any of these watches in person. I have only seen photos and read comments from both companies and these specific watches.
Unfortunately where I live, there is not a dealer whom carries either brand,but I will be traveling in the next few weeks and that is where I would be ableto see and try them on. The only thing is that the JLC NSA are starting to sellout from authorized dealers and the one dealer that I have been talking to only has one NSA available with the black articulated rubber bracelet. In order for them not to sell it I would have to leave some money down and they will hold it.
There are things I like from both of these watches.
From JLC I like that it’s made of grade 5 titanium, the large clear numbers,the alarm feature, the crown locking system, the hand made in house movement and the way it looks on many different straps, especially the articulated rubber bracelet and of course the fact that It’s a JLC.
From BP I like the bezel and the fact that it has luminescence. It looks classic and like you can wear it more elegant as well. Other than this I don't know much about this BP watch.
Which watch would you recommend and why?
By the way I don’t really wear suits only on very special occasions but I do like to dress up some. For the most part I dress down, coach and play sports.
I really appreciate any information you can give me that will help me out with my decision. Also if there is another model or brand you that you would like to recomend please do so.
