I've been in the market for a 'dressier' watch, as the only really decent watch I have at the moment is the Tag Aquaracer.
I was recommended the Marine and I fell in love with it instantly, it's an absolutely stunning watch.
I have a few questions, most of them probably ridiculously stupid, but I'm not a big watch buff.
Why can't you get the same second hand subdial on the automatic that you can on the original? I love that feature but would prefer the automatic.
And on that point, am I right in thinking the original model is the one which needs to be wound everyday and the automatic is the one which doesn't have a battery? (Told you I'm not a watch buff).
What is everyone's preference between the matte and polished case?
I also like the idea of having my initials and a date engraved on the watch, is this likely to decrease the value of the watch as an investment though, or does it not make a great deal of difference?
Lastly, how does the watch look on the wrist in terms of size? My wrists are quite big and while 40/41 doesn't seem especially small, I've seen a couple of comments on the forum saying they were surprised that it looks quite small.
Thanks for any help and I appreciate your patience dealing with a newbie and a watch novice!
