Gentlemen, good morning!
Available to buy a watch, I have $300.00 dollars.
Do not ask me why, because even I know, but I do not like watches ORIENT and SEIKO. Thus, by elimination, among the best manufacturers of watches and machines, left me only CITIZEN and Tissot.
I have registered in this forum, because of this question: Should I buy an Eco-Drive (solar) or a PR100 (quartz)?
They told me, many of my colleagues: "The Eco-Drive watches have better machine, therefore: They last for many years to more than the PR100! Plus, you will not spend on batteries and maintaining." So, what they said corresponds to truth?
Regarding the TISSOT, the PR100 is the only option; while the CITIZEN, there are several models of Eco-Drive line as option... All of them within the amount available and all of them are chronographs and with sapphire glass. This is: both, the PR100, as the Eco-Drive line watches, are beautiful and with similar characteristics. The only difference, the only causative factor of doubt and indecision, is the machine: Japanese vs. Swiss.
What should I buy?
Aesthetically, I would choose the TISSOT; but with regard to quality, whose definition is the most important, relevant and significant to me, I have no idea which one to choose.
The suggestions and recommendations, I will wait anxiously.
P.S.¹: Here are my options: BL5400-52A / AT8011-55E / T0494101105301
P.S.²: Forgive me the grammar mistakes, I'm not American. I am Brazilian.
