I apologise if someone has posted this question before. I'm looking for vintage military/aviator style watches. The following are my preferences:
- Black PVD case
- Black dial face
- Brown vintage colour hands and markings
- Tan/light brown leather watch strap
I don't really mind if it is quartz but it would be nice if its an automatic(that would be very pricey =( )
These are the watches that I've found so far:
Bell & Ross WW1 – 92 Heritage (£2,200)
Bell & Ross BR-03 94 Heritage (£3,950)
Bell & Ross BR03-92 Heritage (£2,700)
Bell & Ross BR01-92 Heritage (£3,100)
Bell & Ross BR 126 Vintage Heritage (£2,950)
Bell & Ross BR 123 Vintage Heritage (£1,950)
STEINHART Nav B-Chrono II Black DLC (£702)
Timex IQ Men's Fly Back Chrono Strap - T2N700 (£124.99)
My favourites are Bell & Ross watches but of course those are far too expensive for my budget.
The most affordable option is the Timex T2N700 but there are a few flaws: the second hand doesn't align with the markings and the most annoying 1,3,6,8,9 mistake at the lower right of the watch. I cannot tolerate with the misalligned markings as there is no point having the second hand if the markings are inaccurate.
My only option left is the Steinhart Nav B-Chrono II black DLC, which is reasonably priced considering that it is using a Swiss Made automatic movement. However it is still slightly over my budget so I would like to get everyone's opinion on any alternative watches. Thanks in advance.
