I have finally decided on buying my first swiss watch and chose Mido Commander II Chronograph. To me it seems like a good combination of classy and "young". But here is where I am stuck: There is the normal commander II which are still produced by the manufacturer (M014.414.11.031.09) and are usually available in shops. Because of friends, I can buy this piece (new) for about 1300€. Then there is the limited version (M016.415.16.051.00), where only 950 pieces exist in total an since it cannot be ordered anymore, it would cost about 2150€. I like both about equally, even though the metal strap of the normal version feels amazing and I always wanted one with metal strap. The main difference is that the limited edition has the chronometer certificate, leather instead of metal strap, general design and of course that it is limited.
In your opinion, is it worth investing 800€ more in the limited edition (reselling value)? Is the movement of the normal version without the certificate less reliable, even though they are both ETA 7750? Even though I only read good things about Mido, they do not seem to be too popular so I am not sure if value will increase significantly in the future. What are your experiences with Mido?
Thank you very much in advance.
