    Help me choose my next watch!!

    Hey there first post so greetings from Virginia,

    Currently shopping around to purchase my second watch and my first Semi-Luxury Watch.

    Currently I am wearing my Orient Mako Pepsi Bezel as my all day everyday watch and am looking to upgrade. Budget is approx 1k and a must have is swiss made. I am looking for this watch to be my new everyday so must be versatile as well as attractive.

    Currently I am looking at these three between my top choices...

    Hamilton King Scuba Automatic $500

    Tag Heuer Formula1 Automatic $1200

    Obviously the price points are different, but does anyone have experience with these watches who can give me a little guidance as to their pros and cons?

    Other suggestions are welcome so please give me your input. Im looking to get this watch for life!

    Thank you

    Even if it were the most expensive I would pick he SS Hamilton. This one is no contest to me.

    I don’t think that Elvis80 is very versatile....

    Personally I’d get a Sinn 556i (Its German, not Swiss but a quality watch).
    id also much rather an Oris Aquis than the Formula 1 or Hamilton Scuba.
    ten13th and sloopd06 like this.
    • Seiko SARX033
    • Oris Aquis
    • Rolex Daytona 116500
    • Rolex Submariner 116610LN

    I agree the ventura is not that versatile. The aquis is not one i have looked at, how does its quality compare to the tag?

    When considering Hamilton (or other Swatch brands Tissot, Certina, Mido, etc) be sure you realize which movement is in the actual watch, as you can be surprised with recent changes in supply of movements.

    Some have longer PR with lower beat rates.

    The Tag Heuer. We could get into why, but as far as I'm concerned it speaks for itself.
    Jaeger LeCoultre, Rolex, IWC, Omega, Breitling, Zenith, Longines, Tag Heuer, Rado, Seiko, Casio

    ive looked at the elvis before, but its just odd with the rubber. also its a diagonal springbar placement so you cant use 99% of the straps you buy 3rd party. swapping straps is half the fun of watch collecting.
    for around 1k i think you can do a bit better. a used TAG aqua racer is kind of the best of both worlds between the hammy and TAG F1. a longines hydroconquest is also nice.
