Yes l know, you couldn't get two more contrasting watch styles but I think they are both great for different reasons. With a significant birthday coming up (65), I get to choose probably my last watch purchase. So please, please help me decide.
So the Seiko would be a sensible choice perfectly complementing my Seiko SKX007 and SARB017. Beautifully sculpted case and bracelet with a subtle dark blue textured dial with bold white accents. Classy and a real work of art in my view.
The Pan Europ in complete contrast is a bold, brash piece of American retro at its best - a sort of horological hot rod. Striking and fun with a great balance of red, white and blue elements.
Which would be a keeper? Is the 045 maybe conservative to the point of dull or the Pan Europ simply here today gone tomorrow flash. Movement wise I don't think there is much significant difference.
Grateful for views
