I'm hoping someone can help me out on a questions I have. It's time for the annual bonus at work at I've been looking around at some watches. I'm pretty much decided on the Swiss Army Airboss Mach 6, most likely in either white or black. (The blue is nice, but my Omega is blue and I'm not totally convinced of the red with black sub dials...). I've also found some retailers over in the US who have reasonable prices and will ship to the UK. All good so far
The first question is what is the lume like? My Omega is great, whereas I would rate my Oris' lume as poor (compared to the Omega). Could anyone place the Airboss in relation to these brands?
Also, it the white really white? My Oris Regulator is meant to be white, but has a fantastic off-whiteness to it. The pictures of the Airboss don't seem to be perfect white either, but I just wanted to see if someone could confirm this.
Finally, and the hardest question, is Swiss Army considered to be alongside the likes of Oris? Lots of people have Oris, but comparitively few the Swiss Army. I haven't seen much about them in the forums and only came across them by chance. The retail is around the $1400 mark and I can see them online for around the $900 mark. Would you consider this about right for the quality of materials/movement etc??
Sorry for so many questions but hope some kind soul can help
