    Off Topic post My first watch (1k vintage spirit)

    Hello! I am looking for my first watch... have been here for awhile and learned a lot but still feel like I need a bit of help. I am looking for vintage style watch desirable with domed crystal. My budget about 750 EUR ~ 1000 $. So far I am between Junghans Max Bill and Longines Conquest Heritage. I like both so could you please comment on the build quality and nuances of these pieces? Longines used to be very respected brand but for exmple Tissot Le Locle I bought for my brother came in poor packaging and looks like the brand concentrates very much on China market. Do you think Longines is being affected under Swatch group the same way? Also what about the movements? Does Junghans use exactly the same ETA movements or are there some differences in the same calibre lets say Tissot Longines and Junghans movements? I am thankful for any info and if you have other alternative in your mind please feel free to share...

    Conquest Heritage L1.611.4.75.2


    Max Bill Nr. 027/3500.00

    Junghans is what I voted. It's so beautifully simple.

    This is a first, three watches that I like all in the same post.
    Unfortunately, they are each examples of a particular style so all three should be bought.

    This one is truly a coin flip.

    I saw the word vintage and couldn't help but think Omega Speedmaster 3510.50
    especially at your price point for just a bit more.

    Longines is and has always been a respected brand...no doubt about that.

    Of course no thread is complete without a ''Speedy Pro'' recommendation...
    I choose Max Bill, I don't like the date layout of the Longines.

    Cheers, Dan
    Current collection: Tissot V8, Steinhart Ocean 1 GMT, Seiko Orange Monster, Epos Jump Hour, Seiko SARB 065, vintage Glashüte, Vostok Amphibia, BALL Trainmaster Eternity, Seiko Bell-Matic, Limes Pharo Moonphase
