My 10 year old Citizen Eco Drive is starting to develop niggles, and as a result I'm looking to replace it (or relegate it to a sports/beach/gardening watch until it dies). As a replacement I'm looking to buy my first mechanical watch, and after a fair bit of research I've narrowed it down to 3 options, though I'm a long way from being an expert in watches!
The brief is a dress watch that will be worn every day, but is not too dressy for weekends (changes in straps is an option to help this). I work in an office so the watch won't be exposed to any rough environments. It's probably worth noting that this will likely be a 'watch for life'. The 3 options are:
1. Nomos Orion (manual wind, 35mm dial). The photo below is an example on my wrist of the 35mm size, though I'd probably go for the version with the blue hands. Looking around on the internet, I could pick this up for about £1,150.
Pros: Cheapest of the 3, clean design, likely lowest service cost
Cons: Most understated of the 3 (could be a pro or con),
2. Montblanc 4810 Day Date. A local AD has this for around £1,900.
Pros: The guilloche effect is lovely, automatic movement, design stands out
Cons: Possibly a bit dressy for daily use, lack of brand kudos
3. Omega Deville Prestige. More difficult to get discount on RRP, but I've seen it online for around £2k.
Pros: Omega quality, coaxial movement, classic style, looks very classy
Cons: Most expensive of the 3!
Any suggestions on which to choose and why would be helpful!
