    Laughing Which watch would you choose and why?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking to get my first entry level luxury watch and I'm having a tough time deciding between the following. I'm looking for something versatile, which offers good value, with a strong brand, a piece that I can keep in my collection for the rest of my life. They are all different styles, but each one offers something that I personally appreciate, something unique, or a combination of factors that lead to a complete package. I can get my hands on any of them, for roughly the same price, give or take, which makes this decision all the more difficult.

    If you were in my place, looking for your first luxury watch, which one would you choose and why? See attachments for pics :)

    Grand Seiko SBGX263


    • beautiful finishing
    • fantastic quartz movement

    I hope you understand my predicament. They are all fantastic watches IMO, so I'm very conflicted :D

    Tudor Black Bay 41. Most versatile of your options, IMO.

    Either Grand Seiko or Tudor Black Bay. IMHO, they are classics today and apt to remain so into the future.

    Of what you have listed here, the Tudor BB41.

    Why? Because that's the only one of the bunch that would truly be appropriate for sport and business. The others lean too far in one direction or the other.

    I liked the Breitling, but I have a tendency to like divers, and in particular divers a little on the dressier side like the Omega Seamaster Bond watch. I prefer the utility of a dive watch timing bezel, and find myself using it quite a bit to time things less than an hour in duration, which is 90% of the things I am timing. I love the dial color and the overall understated look of the watch. You really cant make a bad decision, but my personal preference would be with the Breitling.

    I have to say BB41 too...

    Had it in hand a few weeks ago and it's very very nice. It's also a timeless design which is great for a first luxury timpepiece.

    BB but consider the 36. Imho 41mm is too much for this style of watch and I suspect the 36 will age better as trends change.

    If only it had the Breitling "wings" :( This is a big negative IMO

    I have a 19 cm wrist. Wouldn't the 36 be too small?
