    Tag Heuer Aquaracer x Omega SMP

    I never liked these kind of posts but now i'm torn between two watches. I have the chance to get either a tag heuer aquaracer 500m ceramic or an Omega smp diver, no ceramic. Both would go for the same price.

    The Omega would win due to the brand reputation, but it is a 2011 watch and with quartz moviment. The Aquaracer is automatic and never worn.

    I'm really in doubt, and need some help, what would you do?

    That's my opinion also. I do own a SMP and it is a very nice watch. The finish is great compared to my other watches. Mine is automatic though. I know Quartz vs automatic is just personal preference but I would pick an Omega over a Tag if you take movement out of the equation.

    Generally in a comparison like this I would suggest the Omega; however, between these two, I would buy the Tag. A ceramic bezel, along with a sapphire crystal (I assume it has a sapphire crystal), will ensure that it will look new for much longer.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm im Brazil so the sales in US are hard for me, because the brasilian customs are hard on products coming from usa, and these two watches are already here, so i would not have to worry about it. About the tag, yes, it has a saphire crystal. The smp is in excelent conditon. I'm thinking Tag is the right choice right now.

    If the price is right buy the one you want. in this price range is not about your perfect watch or you would not buy either of these. All of us by cheaper beater watches knowing good and well , It is not our prize possession. If you can wait to buy the one you really want that rings all of your bells, Then I say wait.

    Buy what you like best but in this scenario it would be the Tag hands down

    Thanks for all the inputs, just decided to get the Tag, now it begins the waiting game until it arrives.
