    $1000 Motoring Watch, part 2: Steinhart, Golana, Oris?

    Part 1 was inconclusive, and I've refined and updated my (re)search since. Here are the three I'm choosing from. All are automatic, all are about $1000 USD. Which would you pick and why?

    Steinhart Racetimer Blue



    Golana Swiss Advanced Pro 200



    Oris TT1 Day Date

    The Oris - it's an original design that I happen to quite like.

    I like the Oris here. It uses skeletonised hands properly for once!

    I though WUS loved Steinhart. I'm surprised there's no love for it in this thread.

    And why no love for the Golana? I can't find any good info on how their autos holdup.

    My reasoning is simply that the Steinhart is a fairly obvious "Tudor Heritage Chrono" tilted at 90 degrees. While the Golana is simply a Carrera. I'm not one to get too fussy about homages, and if a design really speaks to you - I say go for it. But, for myself, given the choice, I'm going with the novel design. It's an element of watch making that's just as important as (if not more important than) novel movement manufacture, and build quality.

    Yup, the Oris. Although the steinhart comes in at a close 2nd.
