I've narrowed down my upcoming purchase to two models that were recently introduced at Baselword 2013.. the seamaster aqua terra 15,000 gauss anti-mag or the speedmaster 57' blue face.
Although quite different, both look great to me and have many similarities...great in-house movements, 41.5 mm size, display case backs and water resistance with screw down crowns (greater 150m on the seamaster). Both should be introduced later on this year and my local Omega dealer says the price should be similar on both.. 5.5 to 6K.
Would like to hear everyone's opinion on these 2 models...pros/cons, if it was your money which one would you get? which one better overall for every-day wear? which is better for formal AND casual wear? which do you think has a more timeless design that will age better?
The plan is to keep this watch for many years with no interest in selling, eventually passing it on to my son. This will be my daily workhorse until I can afford my grail piece, the Patek Nautilus! (I hope! lol). Thank you for everyone's input!
