I am new to this forum, and came upon it while I was searching some quality information about watches. I feel like this is the right place to ask this question .
I wanted to get a nice watch for a little while now, and I am about to make the move. I always wanted an Omega Speedmaster Professional. I owned a knock off (boo) when I was a student and today I have saved enough to buy the real thing. However, while looking at options within the same price range, I also saw a Baume & Mercier Classima Executive 8692, which I really like (probably one of the most elegant watches out there). Now, I know these are very different watches obviously, and wanted to tap your opinions.
Is the Omega that much of a step up over the B&M? Are they equivalent in terms of quality, lifetime value, etc?
