New to the forum (and in fact, watches), and grew an instant attraction/fascination with the Type XX look from the 50s. But with the Breguet far out of my price range, I began looking for alternatives. The Sinn 103 was the obvious stand-out. I have to say, it's gorgeous and I love it. But before I pull the trigger, I just want to be certain there aren't better value alternatives out there.
Now, during my research, I discovered the Eterna Airforce III Chronograph. It has the same Type XX style dial but with a stainless steel, brushed bezel. Anyone familiar with this model? Is Eterna on the same level as Sinn as a brand? It looks quite handsome and can be had for under the $1k mark.
If one can have the Eterna in excellent/mint condition for $900, would anyone take that over a similarly condition Sinn 103 for $1500?
Thanks for your help! (sry no pics as I'm typing all this outdoors on the phone)
