This is going to be my first Ball and I don't really need a dress watch. But the price is right and I think it'll look great on the Bond NATO strap. There is a USD100 difference between the 2 with the Glory being the cheaper one. Other than the date placement, I don't see any obvious difference between the two. Which would you recommend? Also considering the Fireman NECC though that's a bit out of budget. Since I'd be getting it from Gnomon, they don't have all the colours in the NECC range either. Any suggestion would be great!
