    On the fence aobut a couple of watches, gearing up for a new purchase!

    I posted a little while ago in he dive watch form that I had a hard time deciding between a few watches I liked, well I am still in the same boat but with a new contender.

    My choices in no particular order:

    Tudor Pelagos
    Seiko MM300
    Sinn U1
    IWC Aquatimer 2000 (black and yellow)

    and now....Omega PO 8500 45.5mm (local AD giving me a great deal)

    sorry no pics.

    So, I can pull the trigger on any of the first 4 at anytime, but am a bit short for the PO, would take me another 1-2 months or so to build up the funds for the PO, or I can sell something off.
    Each of the watches above has something that really draws me to them, yet they are very different and ideally I would love to have them all, but I can get only one.

    Which one? Help

    Great group to choose from! My choice would for sure be the Omega since it would be an exceptional all around watch with great resale value. The Sinn would be my second choice. Since I mainly only wear watches around 42 mm dia., the Pelagos would be my only option here....... Of course, I would rather go for the 42.5 mm PO.

    After trying on the U1 for the first time I really loved it. With the non polished case its extremely versatile with bracelet, rubber, leather or a serious combo of natos. I really like the Pelagos but no way for double the price of a U1

    I like the Tudor because it's the most versatile. It can be dressed up and down and worn in most situations.

    I would save up for the PO, assuming your wrist size/shape can handle the diameter. The IWC comes in second place (with the same caveat about your wrist), but the black/yellow version doesn't appeal to me.

    PO #1, IWC #2 and U1 #3. The PO has a great movement and great wrist presence.

    For me it'd be a toss up between the Seiko and the Tudor.

    The PO is a beautiful watch but I find it far too large at 45.5mm.

    The 45.5 PO is perfect on my wrist, but so is the Pelagos and the IWC. I have not had the opportunity to try on either the Sinn U1 or the MM300. I am not huge on flipping so most likely the watch will be a keeper.
