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!
