i hope you are able to help, I have just joined.
my name is Mike and I am in my early thirties, living in the NW of UK looking for advice about a good watch for me to purchase. I have previously had a number of watches which I have bought and then sold due to purchasing my first house (Omega Seamaster, Tag Carrera etc). Now that I have a ball and chain around my ankle (I.e. A mortgage and all the bills that go with it!). I am looking to buy myself another watch but a relatively small budget of between £250 and £400 GBP. I need a watch which will be equally suitable for smart formal wear and also sport/leisure (sailing,clay shooting etc)
i had a look at the Wenger Commando SRC chronograph 70893 in Orange Wenger Commando SRC | Heinnie Haynes and it's a solid watch and seems very well built. It's just a little too sporty looking for works I dint think it would look right.
i have also seen a Victorinox I like the look of, but want to get your opinion of a) the brand, is it a solid watchmaker with a good reputation, and b) any opinions on the particular model I like the look of. http://www.victorinox.com/ch/product...Classic/241496. I can get this model for £320 GBP, it's normally around £400 GBP.
I am also very much open to recommendations, so please let me know of other models in my price bracket which you feel represent a good option for me.
Your help is very much appreciated.
