    Longiness vs Raymond Weil

    Hi there,
    I am trying to choose between these two watches and right now I am fairly stuck.

    The longines watch I am looking at is the HydroConquest.
    https://www.longines.co.uk/watches/h.../l3-742-4-56-6

    The Raymond Weil watch I'm looking into is the Tango.

    I have my hamilton khaki king as my daily driver and I'm wanting something for special occasions. Also, if you don't think any of these are good, what other watches are there for the similar price.

    Thank you.

    For "special occasions", definitely the Tango. The HydroConquest is more of a sports watch than your Khaki King despite its higher price tag; don't let the cost of a watch change its visual appearance in your eyes.

    But maybe your "special occasions" include snorkeling at a seaside resort, so the Longines would be better. ;)

    Have you gotten a look at the Maestro line, too? We picked up the automatic black dial Maestro for my dad for his upcoming wedding anniversary (and they don't list the black dial on their site anymore... dangit...). Great style at a great price. It's like this one except swap the colors; polished hands and indices, and black textured dial:

    Out of those i would go with the Longines since it's an automatic. I don't know what it is but something bothers me about Raymond Weil watches. I would check out Oris @ Jomashop https://www.jomashop.com/oriswatches.html. Also Baume & Mercier.

    Maybe you don't like the name, Raymond.

    The thing with Raymond Weil is that a lots of people have mixed reactions of it. I'd rather have a watch that competes with a tag and is well respected.

    Oris is a bit out of my price range, I don't want to spend anything more than £900

    My natural instinct is to go for the Longines but because you’re after something for special occasions I would get the Tango.

    Having sold RW for 4.5 years, it gets my respect and TAG doesn't belong in the same paragraph; maybe a footnote.

    I went for the Hydro a while ago, for its price range, can't really beat the quality. 3 sizes for you to choose from, so you'll likely to find the perfect one.

    Mine is blue dial, 41mm auto.
