    Wink 2 WATCHES - What would you have - perfect duet

    I'm feeling like 8-10 watches sitting in boxes while I wear one is wrong.
    Wrong on many levels but I'm not going there
    So I've decided to do some soul searching and find what I really need / use
    The requirements are few.. Price max $2000 but more comfortable @$1000
    Well made / good mov't / good value .

    A. Everyday wear ,for me work is casual attire so many styles fit the bill
    I choose sport / dive style for function & duarability . Those in the house at this point
    Seiko Sumo, Sinn U1 , Sinn 556i ,Longines HydroConquest ...also looking at Seiko Shogun
    Interesting thing is I've determined that 40mm is really my favorite size & Sumo & U1 are larger
    But feel / fit well on my [7" ] wrist ?? ..
    Longines is new guy in town and becoming a favorite due to size -39mm
    Bracelet option is a must for the E.D. watch & rubber option is nice

    B. Casual Dress .. in the house are Hamilton Intra-Matic & Nomos Club .. Like 'em both
    wear small great under long sleeves , keep time well & look classic Club being more casual
    May get more wear , Hamilton looks better with suit [very rare event for me ]
    Needless to say their are some other straglers in the watch box
    Help !! Can I get it down to just two ?
    OK maybe we can make an exception 3.. one more can't hurt

    Longines Legend Diver and Tissot Visodate?

    I'm sure Domo will come up with a suitable pair of Seikos...

    Sinn 556i
    Hamilton Intra-Matic

    Don't understand the desire to have two or three Watches. Have 3x that amount of Casio G-Shocks alone & have dozens of others. And none of them are going anywhere.

    Depends on the week.

    Re: 2 WATCHES - What would you have - perfect duet

    For me, if I had to keep it under $2k/each, I'd probably keep my JS Watch Co. 101 and get a Schaumburg diver. Alternatively, I might go Nomos Ludwig and an Oris diver.
