New to the forum but have silently read through posts during my research process on which watch to get. I recently decided to purchase a new watch to take some of the wear and tear off of my daily (and really only) watch, a vintage manual wind Omega De Ville and to have another option depending on my attire for the day.
I have looked a number of options from several watchmakers but have found myself liking the Baume et Mercier options below. I can get each for approx $1300 (USD), new. I was hoping to get some opinions on what people think in terms of styling (flexibility to be worn in a business or casual environment), general looks, or experience with the watches themselves. Also, would these be considered a good deal at this price?
