    Breitling Super Avenger vs. Tag Heuer Carrera calibre 16

    I need some help in deciding between these two, as they both are watches within my price point of 5K.
    I like the Super Avenger but it seems like more of a fashion trend which will fade out with the big dial, thickness, and shine, while the Carrera seems as a classic time piece that will last.
    I tried both them out, and like both of the equally.
    need help deciding?

    I think you answered your own question. And I agree with you.

    I like Breitling but the very shiny chrome puts me off the standard Super Avenger.
    have you considered a Super Avenger Black Steel?

    Breitling Super Avenger vs. Tag Heuer Carrera calibre 16

    The SA is going on 10 years of production and is one of Breitling's most popular sellers. I don't think fashion trend applies in this case. It's an incredible watch but not for the faint of heart!!!

    That Breitling is way too flashy for me.

    some of the arguments/points i get are that the Carrera seems like any other ordinary watch, can't tell that your wearing a luxury/expensive watch

    Breitling is way too blingly, too big & too sporty. I hate drawing attention with my watch, blacksteel would be better choice if you had to get the Breitling. In this case, I would go with Carrera, more versatile and more of understatement.

    In some cases, that is exactly what the buyer wants.
    As for that Carrera, not a big fan. Other manufacturers do that style better and honestly, it isn't even a "traditional" TAG Heuer (or Heuer) Carrera style.
    Then again, I don't like that Breitling at all.


    If, as your post suggests, you do want people to notice your big expensive watch, get the Breitling.

    I like the Tag more that the Breitling, but I have to admit that neither really does it for me.

    If I were getting a Carrera chrono, I wouldn't get anything but an 1887. Better (and in-house-ish) movement, cleaner look, and just more classic in my mind.

    The Tag is one of my grails so I'm obviously biased. I also think it does a better job of pulling double duty aesthetically in both casual and formal settings than the Breitling. I just couldn't imagine that big ol thing shining out from under a tux jacket without looking out of place.

    If I had the money to have the Breitling as a watch to wear at certain times, it wouldn't be a bad option.
