    Decisions for Watches - Requesting your opinion!

    Hi all.
    I'm new to Watchuseek, and I've come to ask for your opinion as to which watch you would choose between the few listed below. I've searched high and low, and narrowed the choices to these few beauties:

    Candidate 1:

    Candidate 2:

    Candidate 3:

    Candidate 4:

    I guess we could throw in the Longines Heritage 1954 (silver version) in there as well.

    Would be grateful for your thoughts!


    Warm regards,

    Thanks camb66!

    Oops sorry I forgot to write the description down.
    No. 1 is a Claude Meylan 8524.
    No. 2 - the Eterna 1948 Moonphase chrono, 39mm diameter.
    No. 3 is the Longines Master Retrograde - L2.715.4.71.3 at 41mm
    No. 4 is an Eberhard Navy Master - saw it on Chrono24 but I'm not sure whether to trust the seller since it doesn't come with a "trusted seller" certification.

    Out of these I'd go for the Eterna.

    Why ? Because out of these candidates it is the most appealing.
    Kind regards

    Somewhere warm, preferably
    Eterna would be my unequivocal choice. Great dial, wonderful lugs, and you won't see too many other people wearing this great brand. :)

    Longines & Longines only.
    I like my money right where I can see it: strapped to my wrist.

    Re: Decisions for Watches - Requesting your opinion!

    choosing based on brand alone,
    Eterna and the Longines ~ great history, great watches and because I don't know the other 2

    but look wise ... can't say, they all look good,
    but for me personally ... either the Eterna or the Longines

    Eterna. The styling is just bang on. Plus I have always thought their brand logo and font was the absolute best in all of horology. It has that mid-century European luxurious look thst I strongly associate with the Swiss mechanical watch heyday of the 50s and 60s.
