    Decisions, decisions...

    Hello everyone... So, i got myself into this unfortunately situation where i fell in love with two watches but can only purchase either one of them.
    The Tudor black bay black and the Longines pulsometer.


    And to further sweeten the deal, my dealer has offered me $2700 for either one of them.

    So now my questions is... For the same price point, which one would you get and why?


    Thank you.

    Both excellent Watches.

    Which one do you prefer wearing on your wrist?

    Which one do you actually prefer?

    It is really up to you.

    These are very different Watches.

    I own a Black Bay in Blue and wear it more than my other Watches.

    I have owned 3 Longines Watches and for the money, they are excellent.

    The Longines Watch that you have presented is a very interesting Watch.

    If you intend to wear your Watch out Diving, etc, the Tudor is definitely the way to go.

    Is the Black Bay on a strap or bracelet? If bracelet that's an incredible deal. Either way the Black Bay wins for me!

    I have owned several classically styled chronos and a couple of doctors watches and still have a couple kicking around in the box. I do enjoy them. The Longines for me has an issue with the length of the lugs and width of the pulsometer, with that much room they should have included an asthmometer as well. The mono-pusher is really cool though.

    In the end I find classic chronos and specifically doctor's watches are best in at least a medium sized collection, they just aren't daily wear watches in my eyes.

    The BB black has a terrific big crown/gilt sub vibe that I find compelling and is a much more casual watch and think for most people it works in more situations. I see it is a better choice for most people in most situations.

    I am not going to vote (but I bet the BB wins a landslide) because I see them as too apples and oranges and simply should be chosen by ones lifestyle/fashion buying the one that fits the best.

    Dear Dantan,


    Thank you for your valuable input.
    I have always been attracted to vintage style watches.
    I will be using the watch as a daily beater, both in casual and office attire.


    I like the longines pulsometer becase of its complicated-looking unique dial.
    While I like the tudor black bay because of its matte black dial, as well as the slightly elevated markers.


    On the other hand, diver watches are pretty common out there. And I quite like the new ocean one vintage DLC from steinhart, so I was wondering would it be a better idea to get the longines pulsometer + steinhart diver or just purely get the tudor black bay...


    Ah, tough decision for me...

    The Black Bay, simply on the premise that it can be worn in many more situations

    Black Bay! Like posts have mentioned above, it can be casual or dressy.

    If you need the water resistance, the Tudor. If you don't, the Longines as it is a classier and more intersting watch. You can always add a Seiko Monster later for casual duty.
