So as the title states, I’m very close to pulling the trigger on a new Partitio (finally!!). I’ve been wanting one for a while now and I’ve had my sights set on the hand winding white dial with red seconds. I was drawn to the hand wind version because I don’t have one, however, at this eleventh hour I’ve started to second guess whether I should get the hand wind or the automatic. The fact that the hand wind comes with a display back isn’t a deciding factor for me (I actually think the solid back looks nice), but I do like the idea of a hand wind watch.
I have a small collection (Seiko diver, Tissot Visodate, and an older Seiko flighty), and I intend to wear the watch in the office on semi-casual days, and then on the weekends/evenings, splitting time with the diver and flighty (i.e. this won’t be an everyday piece). Considering this, would I be better off getting the auto over the hand wind, or should I stick with the hand wind version as initially planned?
I realize this is ultimately subjective, but I thought I’d get some input from owners before making the plunge. Thanks for any and all advice!!
