Per the title, Iím struggling with this decision. Figured Iíd solicit opinions and see where it leads. As always, thanks in advance for your input....and apologies for the long-ass post.
Brief backstory: currently consolidating and need an everyday banger. No double-duty or versatility required. Iím looking for the watch I donít have to think about when I toss on shorts and a tee and that brief walk to the mailbox somehow morphs into a trip to Home Depot and an all-day landscaping ordeal.
The meat and potatoes of my conundrum: the Damasko DK10 is nearly perfect. Itís everything Iím looking for....but while I like the aesthetics, I donít love the aesthetics. Itís just a wee-bit bland (of all the Damasko options, itís the color/dial combo I like best). Honestly, if it simply had applied markers (or anything to add some visual interest/depth) this would be a done deal. A petty gripe to be sure, but thatís my hesitation.
The Breitling Aerospace Evo is a watch that has always intrigued me. Itís got a cool factor that tickles my berries something fierce, and I love the aesthetics. My concern? That the titanium is gonna get jacked-up. Yeah, I know....itís a tool, donít sweat it. However, I have OCD tendencies (yes, professionally diagnosed...so donít nobody need to get riled-up by the reference). Folks say the watch is durable, but I canít find much info on what Breitling does with their titanium. Is it exceptionally durable....or even remotely comparable to Damakoís steel?
So thatís where Iím at....paralyzed with indecision. Any thoughts that might tip the scale? For what itís worth, Iím not really looking for alternatives here. While I like Sinn, nothing they offer appeals to me more than either of these.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
