So im starting to really get into watches.....and I want to take in all that I can learn so I have a question...I am in search of a new timepiece, and Ive narrowed it down to
Bell and Ross BR03-92
Oris williams F1 - 45mm with metal bracelet
Ernst and Benz
I notice the jewel rating of 25/21/27 etc....the higher number is better right, but what exactly does it mean?
OK - so I went into the EB shop where they actually make the EB brand, its in Birmingham MI. The plus with the ernst benz is that if i want a new face say in a year - they told me i can come in and they will change the color, no charge....how cool when you get bored huh!? I think the watch is made elsewhere but they do some work locally and there were 12 watch makers in house, very cool operation! I guess this family (cant remember name) bought the company some time ago when one of the people there helped with a design that really took off.
Oris - love the crown/casing/etc....fits nice, quality seems tight but its similar to a hamilton I have.....
Bell Ross - odd fit but love the unique element, not sure how the quality compares i think this is where i saw the 21 jewel rating but it seems the BR is well respected...
What to do what to do! I am leaning towards the bell and ross honestly!
helpppp folks :)
