    Dilemma on what to choose GMT II batman or Tudor Black Bay Burgundy red

    This is my first post on this well read forum, I would like to send my warmest regards to all the members. I want to buy myself a new watch, its about time, what I need is a daily watch which i can wear with my suit formally and as a sports watch informally, the Tudor Black Bay Burgundy is simply a beautiful watch, but my only issue with it is i would have wished that they made its bezel ceramic. My other choice would be the GMTII batman, I have to say that the GMTII black bezel is gorgeous, but my issue with the black bezel is that I have 3 colleagues at work that I see on a daily basis, and they all own a black submariner that they wear on every single day, and I wouldn't like to be the fourth person wearing a black bezel rolex to match them! I dunno it would look awkward and it would seem like im copying them in what they wear, therefore the batman GMTII is my choice, but would you guys see it as a watch to be worn in formal occasions with my suit, or do the two colors have a more informal perspective? If any owner has pics of his batman with worn with his suit please share them with me.

    One more thing, i live in D.C. and a friend of mine is going to Geneva next month, price-wise is there a difference? Thank you! looking forward to see your replies.

    Gmt all the way and don't get it from Geneva... You'll pay higher price. If you want to follow convention a sports watch is not good for formal occasions you'll need a simple gold watch for that. If you can't afford another 15k watch for formal occasions you can get a dw watch on leather.

    What do you mean when you say a formal watch? Do you mean to wear to work, or at a black tie event? If it's to go to work in a business suit, then either of your two options are fine.

    As dilemmas go it's a toughie. The BB is a lovely watch but the Rolex is a clear winner. Don't bother with Geneva as I understand that decent prices are like hens teeth over there.

    Personally I wouldn't wear BLNR or Sub with business suit.

    You didn't mention about your current collection, but starting from scratch I'd consider two pieces. Just thinking that price of BLNR would probably get Oyster Perpetual (or Explorer 1) and Black Bay.

    But if your heart is after Batman, then it's better to go that way.
