    Omega AT alternatives?

    So to paint with broad brush strokes, I have always really liked the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra series of watches. Really enjoy how to my eye they can be dressed up or down, just enough colour to move away from all the black/white/grey in the mens watch world without being over the top or garish, wear nicely on just about all straps etc., useful enough WR that I don't have to worry about swimming with it and so on.

    Where I am going with this is - I don't have a huge knowledge of various horological brands. So I defer to the WUS general society - who are the AT competitors out there? Both at the AT price point, and others - I don't have the disposable income to just walk in and drop the cash for a new AT but with a bit of time and saving might one day treat myself...in the meantime lay on me the alternatives out there from all ends!

    I would take the money you do have to spend now and imagine you found a deal where there was that much off a new AT. Keep it aside. Save. It may take a while but when you buy it will be all the more worth it.

    I wore a tissot for years while saving up for my first luxury watch.

    I didn't research too deeply regarding water resistance. Personally I trust BALL. I do think their style and quality can fit your need. I do like BALL over Tag Aquaracer for sure.

    With their quality, you'll also will have a price break too.

    Yeah thats essentially what i am looking at doing. This is more to find watches of a similar ilk - more to learn about similar options out there as much as anything!

    BALL Marvelight is beautiful too. Kinda like Explorer.

    It’s a bit of a saturated market for those types of watch, but among those where the cost is of the same order of magnitude and where the quality is in the same ballpark-

    Rolex OP or Explorer
    Grand Seiko - any non diver
    Tudor Black Bay 36
    Damasko with an in-house movement
    Zenith Defy

    Re: Omega AT alternatives?

    My guess is that the question of something similar to the Aqua Terra in terms of looks and function, but lower in price, would rule out Rolex, Grand Seiko, Tudor and Zenith--and with an interest in having a bit of color, Damasko would be ruled out as well, despite their colored seconds hands options--still an otherwise pretty bland watch with not real ties to the AT. I would suggest a watch just as good in terms of accuracy and build, with some color options, and a look similar to the AT, would be one of several Ball watches, such as shown above--but there are more--check their site out--can't think of a better match myself, nor a better bang for the buck.
