I am planning to get an affordable dressy watch for both formal and casual occasions. No need to be a daily watch, but I will use it frequently for sure.
I have 3 candidates now but can't decide which one to get, hope someone can help me out.
1. Frederique Constant FC-710MC4H6
The price is good on this one if I buy from grey market, and it is an in-house movement with beautiful decoration. But I don't really like the big date wheel.
2. Christopher Ward C9 HARRISON 5 DAY AUTOMATIC
This one is an in-house movement too although I would like to see a better decoration on the movement. I like the design but I don't know why I keep thinking this watch is only for bankers. It is not available anyway, waiting to see some reviews.
3. JS Watch Frisland Classic
The design is perfect! However I still need to convince myself to invest such an uncommon brand. It seems that Frisland Classic uses Soprod A10 which I am ok with it, but for their Islandus model, their website picture shows Soprod A10 too, but the reviews indicate it is ETA2824. I sent an email to make sure if they use Soprod A10 on Frisland Classic, but haven't received any reply yet. Also there is no review on this one.
All thoughts would be appreciated.
