    Recommendations for a new watch

    I am on the market for a new watch, not looking for anything extravagant but would like it to be "classy". I have a Rolex GMT Master II BLNR, an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial Annual Calendar and the previous generation Breitling Aerospace. I don't consider myself an avid watch collector by any means :). I would not want to go bigger than 42mm in dial size, preferably it is around 40mm.

    I am currently looking at the following so hopefully that will give you an idea as to what I am leaning toward, I am certainly open to other suggestions:

    1) Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar, 39mm
    2) Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Geographic, 39mm
    3) Zenith, El Primero, Winsor Annual Calendar, 42mm
    4) Zenith, El Primero 410 Limited Edition, 42mm;

    Welcome to the forums! Both JLC and Zenith are great options; I think it really comes down to whether or not you want a dressy watch or a chronograph.

    I like your suggestions already, but maybe also check out some IWC?

    I like everything on your list and while you may not consider yourself a "collector" you are building a nice collection. IWC is a good reccemendation for similar model types. I really like the Winsor and the Geographic. Happy hunting and welcome to the forum.

    Considering what you have right now, and out of the options above, easily the JLC Master Calendar. Not even a doubt. It is different to the others, more dressy, but still casual enough for smart-casual appearances. I would go even further on the dressy side with the JLC moon and drop the dates.

    1 or 2 are my suggestions. Both brands are great, but I personally like the look of JLC you have listed up.
