This is my first post in the forum. I've been reading many posts from this forum over the last few months but this is the first time I got to register (always hate to register new acc and hate to use FB account to log in too) and post a new thread. I've noticed all the posts and replies from forum members are very nice and informative which I couldn't find it in any other forums. For my background, I'm not a watch guy. I know some knowledge about watches but just kinda on and off on the watches world. Personally, I like the brand Longines, Omega because they are the first Swiss brands I ever known when I grew up. (too bad Longines doesn't have enough popularity as it should be - who doesn't love the tagline from Longines :"Elegance is an attitude"). I like the timeless, simplicity style so the watch can stay "in style" over the years. I also love the retrospective style of the 60s-70s. Dive watches have all the criteria that I want a watch should be. I'm not a watch guy so I'm not looking to collect many watches (maybe in the future when I get richer :D). Currently I only have a Suunto Core to use for my hiking, camping (I take landscape photos so I've been out to the wild a lot).
OK enough for my BS. I really like the Longines Legend Diver. My budget is $2000 and less for a watch. My dilemma is that I never bought any watches that expensive. And I'm still decoding the justification of its price. The recent purchase is the Tissot Le Locle as a gift for my dad. So right now I'm stuck with the thoughts of "to buy- not to buy". Luckily, my local AD made me an offer for that watch a price which I can't refuse (fits my budget well). Please don't ask me to buy cheaper different brands watches with similar look to the Legend diver :D. My question is, can the legend diver be the every day's watch (with both dressy and casual occassions) as I want it to be my "the one" watch and wear it everyday for another 10 years (at least)? My everyday is mostly desk diving. :D
Thanks so much for reading my long post :))
P.S: I'm also interested in the Tissot Visodate and thinking of getting one of these in the future. Really love the rich history from those "classic" watches.
