I've been saving up for a graduation gift for myself (something in the 1-3k range), (last semester of graduate school, and studying hardcore for the comprehensive oral exam).
I've been interested in the following watches,
1.) nomos orion
2.) christopher ward c9
3.) longines heritage 1954
4.) longines flagship heritage
5.) maurice lacroix phases de lune
btw..my holy grail watch is the JLC MUT MOON 39. =)
What are people's thoughts, I'm leaning towards the orion. Even though its pricier, i appreciate the in house movement, and the smaller watch companies.
What would you guys pick and why?
I'm concerned about the nomos small diameter (35mm) as well.
