    Speedmaster or Longines Big Eye

    I am torn between these two, head says Longines, heart says speedie, I have tried on both and really liked them, but a £2k difference between them cannot be overlooked (that's the head talking), but it's a speedie (that's the heart yelling).

    I could ask the same question on the Longines forum but as I am hearting the speedie more I was wondering is there any reason (other than monetary) that I should choose the big eye over the speedie. I am looking to buy new as I want this to be an everyday wear (in rotation with one other) so am dreading buyers remorse.

    I expect most will say the Speedmaster, but Carl will say the Longines no doubt

    If the heart says Speedmaster then keep saving. Will be cheaper in the long run.

    Everyone knows Speedmaster as that is an iconic watch, but what is Longines Big Eye?
    Is there Small Eye too?

    I have to admit the Longines Big Eye is one of the best looking classic chronograph I have seen these days. However, the Speedmaster in itself is an icon and definitely a handsome piece too. Go with the heart for these kind of things, because even if you go for the Big Eye then your heart will keep tugging at you saying you should've gone for the Speedy, or you will start to think that the Big Eye is "second best" and start looking at it's faults even there arent any.

    I just looked it up having no prior knowledge of the big eye, but its beautiful. That said, if you're getting a 3-dial chrono, I'd lean towards the history and allure of the Speedy.

    Re: Speedmaster or Longines Big Eye

    Both are beautiful watches, and I don't think there is much difference in the quality or the finishing between these two. However, if you heart wants the Speedmaster, then keep saving for that. I find that settling for a cheaper substitute will often end up costing more in the long run, as you'll likely sell the substitute at a loss to buy what you wanted in the first place.

    Speedmaster, no question about it. The big eye is not even in the league.

    Speedmaster- a classic must have watch in most watch collectors collection. From Omega - the speedy and seamaster are probably the most iconic watches in the omega brand - just like the daytona and sub from rolex.

    Speedmaster. I want to like the big eye but hate when numbers are cut off by sub-dials...
