    Baume et Mercier 8591 or Longines Master Collection

    I'm planning to buy my first automatic watch and I've narrowed it down to either the B&M 8591 or the Longines Master. Which do you think is the better buy. Also any other recommendations?

    Welcome to the forum!
    First off, the Master Collection IS A COLLECTION, so you'd have to point one out.
    I'm a fan of B&M's (a lot of the people on the forum don't like them), so i'm waiting for the Longines for the comparo.

    I own several watches from both brands, and the B&Ms are better finished (not that the Longines are in any way poorly finished). IMO B&M is better finished than my Omegas too
    Beyond that, the modular chronograph movement in that Longines is a deal-breaker for me.... expensive & difficult to service. I had one in an Omega... Never Again
    Sylistically, both are very attractive with the B&M being "cleaner" and the Longines more "classic".

    Neither ... if it was a heavily discounted B&M Capeland/Hampton or a Longines Heritage Conquest/Silver Arrow/WWW/Flagship, I might consider it.
    Collection:
    A few of this and some of the other ...

    A. Tang: I would choose the Baume et Mercier. I love their fit and finish.

    Thanx for all your input, I'll take it in consideration when I finally pick a watch

    My Longines; not the same model but in the same lineup - the ETA base since I already have a 7750.
    I love the classic look as compared to the B&M but enjoy both.
    A couple of pics. maybe an alternate.
