I will be buying my first serious watch soon. I have found two full set watches in very good condition. The first one is a Tudor Black Bay ETA with red bezel and leather strap. Asking price for the Tudor is $2500. The other one is a Corum Admiral's Cup Legend 42 Chronometer with a steel bracelet and the asking price is $1900. As Tudor is much more simple and $600 or 30% more expensive I am really in between because a Tudor will always be a Tudor and hold its value. When I want to upgrade this watch it will be much easier than Corum to do so. On the other hand Corum feels much better and looks more "luxurious". I really can't decide. I like the look of both. I love the red bezel of Tudor but also I love the fact that Corum is not a brand you see on many wrists(which is an advantage and a disadvantage at the same time). I know it will be very easy to service Tudor but I have no idea about Corum on that matter. What do you think? Which one shall I buy for myself for my 35th birthday.
