I am new to collecting watches but have already started my collection with a Marathon SAR (cyclops) and other SVA watches but want to make my first $1,000+ purchase/investment and would like simply to hear what everyone thinks.
Situation: Prior military with all my watches in this theme and I would like a watch (automatic) that is versatile (casual and business attire) and that is a well respected proven brand.
I have narrowed it down to these three choices:
1. Fortis B-42 day-date (blue hands)
2. Fortis B-42 official cosmonauts
3. Lum-Tec Super Combat B
All are auto/mechanical but there is one tempting alternative choice:
4. Quartz Omega Seamaster
The quarts is the issue at this price....
So anyone own any of these or have any opinions to share I appreciate comments or even possible alternatives (would like to stay around $1,500) thanks and best site ever!
