I really like this watch I saw at a local Birks store
Here's a Link to it. BIRKS AIRMASTER™ Collection, Chronograph Stainless Steel and 18kt Rose Gold Watch, wi... | Birks
It's retailing for around 1400US/CAN. Searching on the forums I found that the watch has a Ronda 4220b movement (I dunno)
Am I getting ripped off here? Apparenlty, the ETA quartz movements are better. On the plus side, Birks promised to replace the battery for free for the lifetime of the watch. Hooray!
Just like to get an expert opinion on this piece and whether I can find a black face chrono with a solid quartz movement or even better a good automatic movement for cheaper or the same price.
I've searched on Jomashop and the only thing that comes close to the look are some Maurice Lacroix's, Longines' and a Raymond Weil or two. But factoring in customs and taxes, they go for 3-4K, which is beyond my price range. Also, when I look for these watches locally, they're very hard to find and are priced around the 3-4K range anyways. TAG and Omegas are beyond me as well.
Your help is much appreciated.
