    My first "luxury" watch: Bvlgari vs Nomos vs Longines vs Oris?

    Dear all, I finally saved up 1000 Euros to purge on my first "high-end" (to me) watch. Ok, they aren't really luxury, but just 2-3 years ago I thought Fossil watches were expensive, so I've come a long way. :)

    One problem: The case diameter has to be <37 mm because my wrist is below 6" (I'm a guy). This means that unfortunately most of the popular go-to great watches would be unfit for me. Usually only those labeled "unisex" would fit my frame.

    My general preference: old-school dressy slim watches >> sporty watches. The watches that I currently wear the most are a Junghans Max Bill 34 mm hand-wind and a Seiko tank-shape dress watch.

    I've narrowed down my options to 4 watches. Their prices are all within 950 - 1150 Euro from a trusted dealer. I would appreciate your help for choosing the most bang-for-the-buck among them. Thank you very much!! :D


    1) Bvlgari Assioma AA44S (used, but just had a service and is in good condition)

    I expect that you will still like the looks of the nomos in 10 years.

    Go for the Nomos. Such a sexy watch. Clean lines and timeless.

    If you can grab a new Nomos Ludwig for 1000 Euros that would be my pick.

    Tough choice between the Bvlgari and the Nomos Ludwig.

    If you have a chance to own a Bvlgari at a price agreeable to you, then go for it. You can always add the Nomos Ludwig to your collection later on down the road.

    I would pick the Longines first and the Nomos second. The Oris looks too common and the Bvlgari is not to my taste.
