    Help Deciding: Oris Aquis v. Tissot Seastar v. Glycine Combat

    Hi all - can you help with the pros and cons of the following watches? I am looking for a daily wearer when I am with my little kids that could take some abuse if needed and not scratch too easily. I am leaning towards a ceramic bezel with rubber strap for this purpose and don't want to spend much more than $1000 USD. Thanks for any input!

    I'd ditch all three and get the Longines Hydroconquest instead and put it on a rubber strap. It works great as a daily wear watch and you can use the bracelet if need be to dress it up.

    Not as much of a fan of the newer version with numbers all around but thats an option as well.

    As for pros and cons, biggest con with the Aquis is proprietary straps. Its a real nuisance and gives you zero options. Its also chunky and not that easy to wear IMO.

    The Seastar is not quite as nice as the Aquis or Longines and I had a blue one that I sold in a bit cos I just didn't get a great vibe from it, but I think this is the newer version with 80 hour power reserve which is a really nice plus. The negative to that is the choppy movement of the second hand due to a lower beat rate. If you like a smooth sweeping second hand, you will not like this.

    Glycine is an under the radar type brand, not many people here have one or talk much about them, they make a good product though, but I would still not rate it on par with the Aquis or HC.

    I would also go with the Aquis but on a steel bracelet.

    I know where you're coming from as I've got little kids too. Get the Glycine. Primarily for the thinness of the case. At 10mm and the shape of the caseback, the watch has a very low profile on the wrist and it's very comfortable to wear. This will keep it from snagging on the little fingers, toes, noses, and ears.

    The Tissot is out. It would be a race between the Aquis and Glycine....I kind of like the Glycine at the moment.

    Not sure I understand why that Oris isn't already in your wrist. Oris pieces carry fit and finish several notches above its pay grade and in my opinion is a better buy than the Tissot and Glycine put together.

    I like Tissots - but that's pretty stiff competition.

    It would be a runaway if the Aquis had a regular strap/Bracelet fitment. I'd still go the best price between the Oris and the Glycine myself because of that.


    But- I like C Ward C60 for that kind of money - primarily because of the color options -
    that lovely 'wave' dial can be had in black, blue, or white
    and the bezel can be gotten in black, maroon, forest green or blue.

    I like the white/blue but check 'em and see which one (if any) call your name.
