I've owned many quartz watches and even a few automatics over the years, none of which was very good and all of which were only a few hundred dollars at most. I'm looking to buy a decent watch that I can wear for years to come.
- steel or ceramic case
- steel bracelet
- preferably chronograph, though not necessary
- >= 40mm, <= 43mm case diameter
- black or blue dial
- reputable and Swiss brand with Swiss movement
- <= $3,500
My top candidates right now are:
Omega Speedmaster 40mm Date $3,500
Longines Conquest L27434566 41mm $2,750
Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph 42mm $3,200
My favorite is definitely the Omega. What do you all think, and do you know of any other watches that fit all of my criteria?
