Looking for advice and your imput on the following two watches. Im in the market for a nice "dress" piece, mid market range and am torn between the classic styling and co-ax benifit of the Omega Prestige vs. the unique styling of Longines Avigation (Type A-7).
Ive had both watches on the wrist, both look good with a cuff despite the massive size differences.
Question is I already own a couple of Omegas and the co-ax has its good and bad days. Im yet to own a Longines, is their take on an ETA modification any good? Is the prestige too classic?
The A7 will make a nice addition to my collection and lends itself to be worn formally or casually. On the other hand, the Prestige will be my primary dress watch.
