Fellow watch enthusiasts-
I have a bit of a tough purchase decision to make; I am rarely this indecisive, so I must seek the help of fellow collectors.
THE KNOWN DEFENDER: Seiko 5 Automatic SNKE63 ($59.99 shipped)
THE UNKNOWN CONTENDER(S): Golana Swiss Aqua Pro 100 / Aqua Pro 200 ($98/$122 shipped)
I think the Seiko is a great price for a 21-Jewel automatic, with a clear-back. But I also checked out Golana's site (www.golana.eu) and was impressed with the companies overall presentation and appearance of the watches. From the little I have been able to read about online, they seem to be worth the money. And I'm surely not afraid to pioneer a more unknown brand at the chance of making a great find.
So, what I am asking here is a simple "What Would You Do?"
- The Seiko 5 comes from a VERY reputable seller on eBay, but does not come with a box.
- The Golana's come from Ashford.com, offer 30-day money-back guarantees, and 2-year warranties from Ashford.
- This watch is meant to be my daily-use, trustworthy beat around- wear it when I work-out or go running, goes into the shower, maybe fall asleep with it on my hand.
Thank you for reading, I look forward to everyone's comments!!! :thanks:thanks
