    My vote would be for the Longines Legend Diver, just because I love the vintage look of the watch.

    A SOH at $1500 in good condition is a steal!

    Second the Legend Diver. I'd pull the trigger on one myself if my wrists could handle it. I fear there would be some overhang on my 6.5" wrists.

    I second that. And if you do, check out one of the forum sponsors Topper Jewelers for these LLDs. I just got one from him, and Rob is lovely to deal with as always.

    I would go with the two Steinhart watches. I think you get more for your money than with your other options.

    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel,
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down."

    I would choose the Longines Legend Diver. It is such a gorgeous looking timepiece. I like the vintage look and an internal bezel is a unique addition to a collection.

    I'd go for the Breitling as the SOH is one of my favourite watches but the Longines would also be tempting.

    Thanks all, a diversity in opinions is not making my decision simpler....


    But maybe if two dogs are fighting for the same a third one runs away with it....

    Any alternatives?
