    Longines vs. Tag Heuer vs. Mido vs. Ball

    Stuck deciding on which of these four to get. Any thoughts?

    1. Longines Masters Collection L2.628.4.78.6
    2. Tag Heuer Carrera WV211B.BA0787
    3. Mido Baroncelli M010.408.11.037.00
    4. Ball Engineer Ohio 38 mm NM1026C-SJ-WH

    My own thoughts...All seem like classic designs. 1 and 2 are at the same price-point and I have seen them in person. 1 seems like it carries a better finish and is more dressy and classic than 2, which seems more modern.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to see 3 without unscheduled traveling. Unlike 1 & 2, the mido does proudly proclaims itself as a chronometer and has a AR (flat?) sapphire crystal.

    edit: I've dropped the Tag for having luminous hands but no lume on the hourly indices.

    I really like the TAG and the Longines. If you want a simple one (as it seems) go with the TAG. But have you thought about the other more complicated models in the Longines Masters Collection? This one for example: L2.673.4.78.3 - The Longines Master Collection - Watchmaking Tradition - Watches - Longines Swiss Watchmakers since 1832

    I really like the MIDO, very classy and like you said, has the chronometer

    Whatever you decide, enjoy =)

    Clearly, the Mido is the best value.
    Collection:
    A few of this and some of the other ...

    AR is Anti-Reflective coating which is beneficial as is the chronometer rating. Check that the others don't have AR, it would be an important factor for me. Visually i like all 3. The Tag might be a bit more versatile, i.e. slightly less formal.
