    Well using your own +/- rating the Speedy has the best positive balance on what matters to you. Also, it'll go over 2 days on a full wind, and winding it isn't really an issue. In fact,MIT is quite nice.

    Why not just save for one of your grails?

    All nice choices. Of those, my favorite is the Speedy '57. Then again, I already have a manual wind Speedy and like it a lot, and I rather enjoy winding it up.

    Can't help, sorry. Because I would gladly take any of your suggestions!

    Currently, I'm curious about this one, though

    Zenith! Is also on the list this year (have to see how the 42 works, else ill look for a older 38) but the 9300 speedy is also a great watch to look at.
