    Tag Heuer vs. Baume and Mercier

    Two of my friends have been arguing about what watch company makes better watches based on prestige, clasp, case, movement...ect. I tried to explain to them that there are several watches that stand out from the rest...example- B&M Capeland S XXL and Tag Aquagraph...just to name a few. They didn't care about my rational explanation to the situation, and instead demanded that I ask someone elses opinion. So PLEASE give me your opinions, so I can get one of them to be quiet.:thanks

    Really, arguing about this? No one can win an argument based on opinion. IMO, both are nice.

    Your argument is the correct one, it is rare that one brand can be described as wholly superior to another brand in the same price range. Comparing the individual watches is better.

    IMO it's hard to beat the prestige and quality of Seiko in any price range <$10k.

    I find the two brands different. B&M is more of a gress watch and Tag is more of a sports watch. My take is that B&M has a little more prestige.

    Don't know much about B&M, but Tag makes a great watch.

    Re: Tag Heuer vs. Baume and Mercier

    im a big fan of b&m its got class and its made in GENEVA!!!!! i perosnally think B&M is a better overall brand then tag. i also think B&Ms quality reflects its price unlike tags. i think tags price "tag" (no pun intended) reflects its advertising, i would like to see it in longiness price range (a couple of hundered dollars less). all that said, if this was 2 decands ago then i would have a different opinion because tags use to build tanks! (with stand everything)

    doesnt matter if i think B&M is better cuz the general market (none watch enthusiest) know TAG (as a brand) to be a much better and will probaly persive tag as the better watch. so if your looking to buy a watch to upgrade your image, then i would stick with TAG because there is not point trying to explain your watch to a latent audience.

    I just recently purshased a pre-owned B&M Capeland. once I put it on I fell it love with it. The watch has the prestige and the looks is sporty and I can wear it with just about anything.

    Excellent pick up. Many people consider the Capeland as the best watch B & M has to offer. Great looking pix
