    Heuer or Bremont - Advice please

    Hi all,

    I am looking to get a new chronograph and have a few that i really like, but i have 4 main contenders - 2 are Tag's and 2 are Bremonts.

    1. TAG Heuer Carrera Cal1887 Chronograph Jack Heuer Edition

    2. Tag Heuer CALIBRE 17 Automatic Chronograph 41 mm

    3. Bremont Boeing Model 247 Ti-GMT

    4. Bremont ALT1-C/AN


    I have a retainer on the 1887 but to try the Bremonts i would need to go iinto London to try it on.
    Budget is around £4200. Depreciation is not a big factor as i dont plan to change it out, hence why i wanted a sort of timeless classic looking watch that i can wear day or night.
    Chronoghraph is a preference but not 100% essential, again the date is a preference but not essential.

    my biggest issue is to get the Bremont i have to go into London (from the Midlands) which i dont mind doing if its worth the trip? looking around the forums it seems both brands are like marmite. my fav looking watch is the Calibre 17, but the Jack Heuer edition comes a very very close second and has the 1887 movement!
    The Bremonts are nice looking watches and I really like the appeal of the brand. But are they that much better than the Tag's that i should attempt the M25 on bank holiday to get down to London to try them on?

    any help on making a decision would be much appreciated.

    I'd go with the Jack - great movement, 12:00 crown distinguishes it from other chronos.

    Jack Heuer Edition? Is there a Jack Bauer Edition with 24hr dial, too?

    I really like the old school vibe of the Calibre 17, and a month ago that would have been my choice. Two weeks ago I met both Nick and Giles English at BaselWorld and their enthusiasm and passion won me over to their brand. Today I would probably go with the ALT1-C/AN with it's classic/clean lines.

    #2 is the best looking. Love the black subdials on white dial.

    The ALT1-C/AN is a conservatively designed beauty and is way ahead of the others in that category. That said, the Jack Heuer's quirky bull head combined with the dial is my personal pick.
