    Longines Master Collection Moonphase Chronograph OR Omega Speedmaster Date Chronograph?

    Hi all,
    I plan to get my first watch and based on my budget, I've shortlisted Omega Speedmaster Date and Longines Master Collection Moonphase, I'm planning to get either one but I can't decide on which. What do you guys think? Should I get Longines with the nice dial,chronograph, moonphase,full calendar, transparent case back, etc. or the Omega with the basic chronograph look but with a higher market brand positioning than Longines?

    Longines. IF I were going for a Speedmaster, it would be the original recipe.

    Dunno. Not massively keen on either I'm afraid. Let's see how many posts before someone recommends the Speedy Pro.

    Yes. AND THAT'S NOT A REC GEOFFBOT!

    If your budget gets you to the Longines MCM, I'd consider the Longines St. Imier as well.

    WOW...agree again with what he suggested. That is a beautiful Longines.

    No question between these two that it would be the Longines. I think that particular watch challenges for the "most beautiful" title in its price bracket. If you were putting it next to the speedy pro, it may be a different story.
