    Yes, another this or that

    I want to buy something a bit outrageous in the format of a dive chronograph. These are the two I am considering. Which do you like better (I realize most of you probably dislike both) ....

    Roger Dubuis Easy Diver: Magnificent detailing and finishing, among the best offered today. Uses the manual wind Patek Philippe calibre 5070 built by Roger Dubuis when he worked for Patek. When he left Patek, he negotiated an agreement allowing him to use this movement in his own watches. The movement is to be eliminated by the new owner Richemont, and as a result this watch is being heavily discounted. The time is right to pick one of these up with this magnificent movement.




    Clerc Hydroscaph Central: I know nothing about this watch. I suspect the movement is a base ETA with a Dubois Dupraz similar to the Tag Aquagraph. This watch is only available new and costs the same as the heavily discounted Easy Diver above.

    Does it say "just for friends" on the back of that watch?

    From these two,I like the clerc
    "Sports activity watch" and "just for friends" kinda kill the easy diver for me..no matter how good the movement is,the appearance is simply too much for me..

    Not a fan of either, in fact I rather dislike both, but if I had to choose though it'd be Roger Dubuis... Don't mean to be rude... If we all had the exact same opinions on everything the world would be a pretty boring place!

    I suppose the Clerc Hydroscaph Central looks better... I don't think you should pay 10k for the first one...
