Ive narrowed it down to two watches and i wanted to see what everyone thought. This watch will be a daily wearer until ultimately I acquire the funds for a new Rolex date just... in the future..sometime. . Anywho, after hours of research and forums scouring Ive ended up between the NOMOS club and the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Calibre 5 Auto. The issue is they are very different watches, and i'm aware that Tag isn't the most beloved brand on the forums, yet the new formula 1 has a decent automatic movement and feels very solid on the wrist. It's visually pleasing to me and seems as if it would be a great daily wearer due to its build and versatility. The NOMOS on the other hand is more in a league of its own with in in-house german quality movement for its price-point is something I've yet to find elsewhere. However, not having an AD anywhere near me I cant say how it feels on the wrist and can't comment on the "lug length" issue people seem to have. It also doesn't seem quite as versatile as a daily wearer, but it seems like it could be dressed up or down rather well. Anyways, thanks for the help guys let me know what you think!
