    Help me choose my new purchase between Breitling, B&R, Omega & TAG... PLEASE!

    Hi everyone, haven't posted in a while... but I'm wanting to purchase a new watch around $3,700.00 or under and have narrowed the list down to these. I'm not a fan of bulky watches or complicated dials and prefer bracelets, so these are all similar in design, but can't make a decision and keep going back and forth as all of these have their pros and cons, so I desperately need help. OPINIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! I want a watch that will not depreciate too terribly and a piece that is of the highest quality in the price range. THANKS FOR THE HELP- I really don't want to regret my purchase afterwards...

    Bell & Ross BRV2-92 Date 42mm - $3,200
    Pros- sharp design, sporty but sharp and can be dressy as well, Price
    Cons- won't hold value, doesn't have the heritage of the other brands

    TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 Day&Date 41mm - $2,700
    Pros- really sharp design, low price!
    Cons- design too plain?, won't hold value, scratches easily

    Breitling Aviator 8 Date 41mm - $4,310
    Pros- robust but not too big and still classy and elegant
    Cons- dial a bit underwhelming, price out of my range a bit

    Omega DeVille Prestige Coaxial Date 36mm - $3,850
    Pros- Better brand & movement than the others
    Cons- Too plain, 36mm is too small, underwhelming

    For that money you can get an unworn Rolex OP 36. That would be my choice. After that I’d find an Omega AT.

    I already have a 2016 34mm OP Air King Blue Arabic dial, Aqua Terra is a good idea tho but a bit out of my current spending range.

    It won't be a popular option here, but I like the look of the Tag best.

    The Breitling or Omega will "hold" thier value best % wise... but overall the Tag you will be out the least amount when/if you flip.

    Out of those you have shown, I would go with Breitling or Omega simply because they are chronometers. Just my opinion. Also my opinion, at $3700, you could look at Tudor and IWC.

    A Grand Seiko SBGA285 will hold its value very well and run you $3700

    I think there are a few other options too, e.g.

    - Tudor BB36
    - IWC Mark, 36 or 40mm - grey or used

    Of your choices, I think the Breitling looks the best. It would be a slam dunk if the numerals were applied. If we're allowed to go off script a little, I second the GS suggestion, whether automatic or spring drive.

    So you say a con of the 36mm Omega on your list is that it’s too small but yet you own a 34mm Rolex? Hmmm
