I'm in the market for a manual wind watch. There are two fairly different watches I'm looking at - the Montblanc Heritage Chronometrie in gold, or Omega Speedmaster. I plan for this to be a daily wear watch.
I've always wanted a solid gold watch and the Montblanc is the first I've considered at it's price which I can find in the gray market. I've worn a small gold tone dress watch that looks very similar as a daily wear in the past, though I'm usually the only one with such a formal watch in my usual polo and jeans/shorts. I'm not very style concious but giving it a little thought now as I consider these watches. What are your thoughts on a watch this dressy in casual clothes daily?
I've never had an in-house movement which draws me to the Omega. I've never worn a tachymeter/chronometer as a daily wear watch so that's a slight hesitation for me here, although I do like how it looks. Anyone with positive or negative experience after getting first watch with tachymeter?
Any other manual wind watch in the $1-3.5k range to consider? I have given Panerai some thought, but it's a stretch on my price range - may consider a preowned but haven't given them as much thought as the two above.
