    Which watch should i buy ? Maurice, Raymond, or Montblanc?

    Hi Everyone,

    So I'm in a bit of a deboggle here, I'm trying to decide which watch i like the most out of the options below. Now i know that what i like may be different from what you like, so i suppose what im asking is for everyones opinion on Maurice Lacroix compared to Frederique Constant or Montblanc.

    To Following links and images are my shortlists;(not in any particular order)

    Montblanc Star Large Black Calf Stainless Steel Mens Watch 7249 (montblanc watch, nice but its QUARTZ?????? ridiculuous for the price IMO)

    Raymond Weil Maestro Mens Watch 2839-STC-00659 (Raymond Weil Maestro)

    Frederique Constant Classics Chopin Automatic White Dial Mens Watch 303CHE4P6 (Raymond Weil Chopin edition, i really like the case here, and since its limited edition would it retain more value?)

    Frederique Constant Black Dial Stainless Steel Mens Watch FC-330B6B6 (frederique constant )

    Frederique Constant Black Dial Stainless Steel Mens Watch FC-330B6B6B (same as above but with Metal band)



    2nd Hand potential buys from WUS:

    Nice Ray Weil Nabucco, this is a good price isnt it ?


    So any inputs, comments, suggestions would be much appreciated.

    IF you have another brand/model to suggest please do so. Im looking for an automatic watch priced at most at $1,700


    Thank YOU!

    Actually, you can get a Sports watch and a dress watch here! I would buy the Frederique Constant Black Dial Stainless Steel Mens Watch FC-330B6B6 (frederique constant ) AND the FS/ Raymond Geneve Weil Nabucco 3900-ST-05207 Swiss Made Automatic........cost you slightly under $1800 for both!

    Omega Ω Seamaster GMT 2234.50 (daily wear)
    Oris BC3 Advanced Day Date (tool watch but looking to sell)
    Casio Edifice EQW-A1110 Atomic Solar (for my eldest)
    Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic (for my youngest)
    Garmin Forerunner (when I start running again!)
    Casio Mudman (looking to just give away)

    Thanks Hammondo, actually thats not a bad idea and i did think of possibly doing that. though 1,800 is pushing it, remember 1,700 was pushing it :)

    That Chopin looks sharp. It might make my shortlist if I were looking for a serious dress watch...

    You're all over the map here: a quartz, a couple three-hander automatics, a moonphase, a chrono ...
    I think you need to do a bit more work on what it is you want. These watches are not really comparable from a functional standpoint.
