    Help... What watch???

    Any ideas? I want a good looking classic everyday watch and really like the styling of the marine watches. I have around €300-€400 to spend.

    I like the laco navy 42 watch, for the heritage, but I think it looks a little too simple... And not keen on the date window. Has anyone got any other alternatives?

    Thanks
    Phil

    Archimede has a great line up, pilot & classic styles. Made in Germany & reasonably priced.

    Thanks... Yeah I like the face and blue hands on the Archimedes deck watch, that's €550... €200 more than the laco, is it worth it? Hmmm

    The Stowa Marine would be a solid choice. It does have a date window, but its very subtle. 479 Euro (without VAT), which converts to €407, right on budget.

    That's almost perfect... for the money, not sure on the missing 6 though. Just been on the stowa website, the next model for €700 euros is perfect! Typical... But I think I could lose a 6 for €300!
