    Tag Heuer Twin Time WV2116 vs. Baume et Mercier Classima 8462

    Hi everyone. I am new to watches (only have a Movado chrono for daily wear and timex digital for the gym) but wanted to get your expert opinions on the quality of the two watches. They are both similarly styled "dress" watches. I will most likely keep them on a black leather band and maybe occasionally switch to a brown. I plan on wearing this watch almost everyday (I wear a suit everyday except for Fridays), except for maybe the weekends so I'm really looking for something that will continue to perform and last a long time with proper maintenance.

    Here are the stats for both:

    Tag:

    39mm
    Automatic movement
    Sapphire (and sapphire on the back with visible movement)

    Baume:

    42mm
    Automatic movement
    Sapphire crystal, steel back

    Any and all info will be greatly appreciated!

    I definitely think the TAG carrera/twin time is much more attractive and interesting.

    +1 on the Tag Carrera Twin Time. Always liked that model. Simple and classy.

    I have always loved the Twin Time. If it was 41 or 42mm I would have already bought one. A tad too small for me though.

    Like the B & M, prefer their design, fit and finish to Tag. Suggest you compare both in-hand.

    I tried. Unfortunately there is only one authorized B&M dealer here in Charlotte and he didn't have it in stock

    Really want to know which watch uses higher quality movement/materials/etc. I really want this watch to last.
