    Down to three....need help deciding.

    I'm stuck trying to decide my next watch purchase. All three are great options that aren't necessarily directly comparable. So I've noted a little bit about my thought process in choosing below. But I would greatly appreciate any input or experiences with any of these options.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Tudor Black Bay: Awesome watch and love the leather strap, but I already have two black dialed watches (speedy pro & Chris Ward c40 PVD).

    Rolex Explorrer II 16570: I like the GMT complication and white dial, but will be a bigger hassle to track down pre-owned (will go AD on the others). It's also the most expensive of the three.

    Nomos Tangente: Fills the the dress watch gap in my collection. However, I rarely wear a suit, so not a gap that must be filled....but I WANT one.

    It sounds like you want the Nomos most. I'd go with that thinking...

    The Nomos is a straight out dress watch. The Tudor a a straight out sports watch and the ExpII is right in the middle. Based on your use, do you see yourself needing more dress, more sports or something in the middle? When it comes to eye flash, the Tudor takes it. When it comes to most subdued the Nomos is it. And again the expII is right in the middle. Interesting match up.

    As for my taste, the ExpII is the one, hands down. That Nomos does not do anything for me. The Tudor is awesome as well and if I wanted a daily wear sports watch that one would be it.

    Rolex. If you have it on the list, you'll probably get it one day. The only way to avoid it is to not have it on the list at all.

    Rolex +1. Best in terms of resale value.

    I would definitely go with the Rolex. White dial adds variety to your collection, it is super versatile, and like others have said....if its on the list now, you might as well get it because it is going to stay on your list if you don't.

    Dunno - they're all very nice. Just fyi though you don't have to wear a suit to wear a dress watch - I wear mine with everything.
