    Can you make top 5 of these 4 watches?

    So, I do have these four watches in consideration, but I just can't make informed decision without your help :)

    Would you please rate these four watches in your preferred order and add one in any place of the top witch you would think as contestant?

    Any comments why you choose particular watch for first position would be appreciated.

    Longiness HydroConquest automatic
    Archimede Sporttaucher 60
    Sinn Pilot watch 104
    Steinhart Ocean Two
    ...... ...........

    1. Sinn
    2. Archimede
    3. Longines
    4. Steinhart

    I don't know if it would be my "Topper" but I would also look at the Oris Aquis. <anyone see what I did there?

    1. Sinn
    2. Longines (that particular, old model in the picture with raised lume dots)
    3. Archimede (I just generally dislike four o'clock date and crown and those small red numbers somehow don't catch my eye very well)
    4. Steinhart (I don't like the brand in general and that design does nothing for me: don't like the hands, the bezel...)

    Since you already have a couple of Germans on the list, I'd add a third - Damasko DA 46 (borrowed pic). No bracelet though.

    Longines, a handsome, quality watch.
    Sinn, many forum members rate it high.
    Christopher Ward, own a C-60, good watch for the money.
    Archimede, looks nicer than the Steinhart.
    Steinhart, your choice, not mine.

    I'd definitely place the Sinn first.

    Is this a trick question ?...not sure if it's:
    A. You missed a comma. Or
    B. You placed yourself in the first person. Or
    C. The double quotation marks suggesting irony.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste .

    A. Sinn
    B. Sinn
    C. Sinn
    D. Sinn

    You also might look at the Sinn 104.

    Seriously, I don't have any hands-on with the others, but I have with the Sinn and it's an absolute jewel. Just stunning.

    Topper is a forum sponsor and Oris dealer.

    Just get the Sinn - end of problem.

    I recently handled the Longines Hydroconquest and to be honest I wasn't blown away - it felt very average

    All four of those are really cool.

    Deep down inside, which one do you want us to choose? I'd be willing to bet that there's one you favor just a little bit over the others. Whichever it is, pick that one. There are no bad choices in your group.
