I had been saving up my Tesco clubcard vouchers (UK supermarket loyality offer) for the past couple of years with the intention of converting them in to Goldsmiths vouchers and purchasing an Omega Planet Ocean when I had eventually saved enough. A recent change to the terms of this offer (vouchers being devalued by 25% if not converted this month) means that I have had to cash in early. I now only have around £1250 of Goldsmiths credit which is seriously short for my original plan. One of the conditions of using these vouchers is that you have to pay 100% of the list price when making a purchase. This means that to get the PO I would have to put in over £1100 of my own money, something I do not really want to do right now.
So I have had to rethink and try to find something closer to £1250. I don't mind putting in a maximum of £500 myself but I think that's my limit. I have looked at their site many times and currently have come up with the following options:
Quartz Omega seamaster
Quartz Omega Aquaterra
Automatic Omega railmaster (at a push)
Quartz TAG Aquaracer 500m
Automatic TAG Aquaracer 500m
I really want an automatic and would have prefered an Omega but I have to be realistic. I do like the look of the Aquaracer 500m but don't understand the point of the odd looking magnified date (I cannot think of a situation ever occuring where I might need to be able to see the date that little bit closer). I would appreciate any feedback on my potential selections or any other suggestions in this price range as I will have to make a choice fairly soon.
