Hi everyone, shopping a nice automatic watch for the wife. My priority is versatility (this will be her everyday + going out watch) and style.
I was set on the BALLON BLEU DE CARTIER WATCH 33 MM, STEEL, LEATHER (https://www.cartier.com/en-us/collec...ier-watch.html)
... but then I stumbled on a number of longines which look great, are automatic, and are significantly cheaper. So the decision process has gotten significantly more difficult! Would love to hear the opinions of folks who either have any of these watches or were faced with a similar decision.
Longines Primaluna Stainless mother of pearl + steel + diamonds (https://www.longines.com/watches/pri.../l8-111-0-87-6)
Longines Primaluna Stainless mother of pearl + steel + NO diamonds (https://www.longines.com/watches/pri.../l8-113-4-87-6)
Longines Dolcevita Stainless steel https://www.longines.com/watches/lon.../l5-757-4-71-6
Granted, they're all quite different but at the same time fit the versatility requirement. Note that the Cartier would be with the leather band, not stainless steel.
