I am looking for my first "fine" men's watch. My grail is the GO 39-41-14-22-04 panorama date, but that is just fantasy for now.
Instead I am trying to find a good first substitute that:
- has a black or gray dial
- date complication
- display back
- auto or manual
- <=$2k USD (good used is fine)
I have found the following options that might work:
- Alpina Alpiner
- Baume and Mercier Clifton
- Longines Conquest
- Ball Streamliner
Which would be the best choice in terms of reliability and quality? Thanks so much for the advice.
