    Dress watch battle: Omega De ville Prestige vs FC-710?

    Ok, it would be nice to hear your opinions. Looking to purchase a nice simple classic dress watch at a reasonable price (the JLC can wait....plenty of time for that). So torn be tween two choices for everyday wear with my suits.

    Option 1: Omega De Ville Prestige:
    Simplistic timeless design, good size (39.5mm), fairly slim, reasonable price (pick up cheaper at duty free), reliable. But I have already have an Omega, no clear case back and old school pin buckle strap.






    Option 2: Frederique Constant FC-710
    Different style to what I already to possess, deployment strap, very stylish and dressy but a bit chunky at 42mm, though it wears small.





    I have heard opinions of the FC on here but what about this particular Omega-any experiences or wristshots would be welcome. Both are at the same price point btw.

    Current:
    Omega Planet Ocean
    Zenith Captain Winsor Annual Calendar

    I can't speak for the FC but I handled a Prestige a few months ago and it really is stunning.

    De Ville Prestige is a beautiful watch - I looked at one a few days ago. But for me I would pick the FC 710 - It's just a far more interesting dial and crown.

    I'd vote for the Fred. Constant. It's a beautiful watch with a far more captivating dial and an attractive movement to boot! As for the De Ville, I've always thought it was the plain jane of the Omega lineup, sort of like how I've thought of the Datejust in Rolex's catalog. (I realize the Datejust is a classic, famous watch that tons of people wear . . . but it just seems to me that the heart of Rolex is the Submariner and the Explorer, the same way the heart of Omega is the Speedmaster Pro and the Seamaster.)

    There's no way I'd ever chose the FC over an Omega, especially the Deville, ESPECIALLY for the same price.

    Hands down the Omega is the best looking of the two. The FC has just a bit too much eye candy in comparison.
