Long time lurker first time poster here.
For my next watch I'm after an everyday watch. While there is limited diving at the moment there is at least plenty of swimming for exercise 3-4 days a week. This watch has to go from the pool to work (in a suit) and be able to travel a couple of times a year.
I'm deciding between an Oris Diver Date (steel bezel) and Longines HydroConquest – pics straight off the website. Any obvious advantages for instance over one movement from the other? My other watches are an eclectic bunch, a Maurice Lacroix dress watch, Oris Great Barrier Reef LE (I wear my watch on my right wrist) and a Citizen Eco Drive. Each one I bought for various reasons which made sense at the time. Now, I'd like something both robust and a little nicer in some cases, which will take a bit of a beating long term. Hoping to pick up something in an end of financial year sale and I'm going overseas soon so that will help with the GST.
Pros and Cons - your thoughts please. Other suggestions welcome.
Thanks in advance,
