I've been recently looking for a new watch and I can't find one that I truly like (in my price range). However, I remember going to Tourneau one day to look at an Oris, and this watch caught my eye. I tried it on and liked it instantly. I especially love the simplistic styling. However, I thought the price was high considering it's a house brand and Tourneau is notorious for not giving discounts. Fast forward to now, and while browsing on Toruneau's site, I noticed the price on their watches had dropped a few hundred dollars from what I remember, making the watch a much better value.
Here's my dilemma, I have not heard too much about Tourneau's watches, good or bad. I wanted to get opinions before I go to the store to check them out again. Does anyone have any experience with these? Also, what is the general opinion on manual watches? I own automatic watches but do not know how I feel about have to wind my watch. This may be a problem because the 44mm in the style I like, only comes in manual.
EDIT: for reference, the 44mm is $1,800 and the 40mm is $1,950. I know I can get $300 off both of those prices.
Below are pictures of the watch I am referring to.
And the 40mm Automatic that I also like.
