    Tradition Date or Heritage Spirit?


    I'm looking to buy a watch for $1100-$1400 (or rather the UK/EU equivalent as I'm UK based).

    I've my eye on the Tradition Date Automatic and the Heritage Spirit Automatic, because:
    1. I prefer to buy a watch on a bracelet
    2. These are really the only Montblanc options I was able to find within budget

    I think the Spirit looks better but I love the 'proper' Montblanc logo on the crown of the Tradition.

    Any thoughts which would be better and/or whether I should look at any other Montblanc options?

    NB. I would in all honesty prefer an automatic Omega Aqua Terra or Speedmaster Professional but that is well outside of budget and if I were to buy second hand I'd want something mint.

    I prefer the Spirit between those two.

    I know, old thread but it's still on the first page of the forum. Did you end up getting one of these OP?
    I tried on the no date Spirit yesterday and while I usually prefer slightly larger watches for my 7 inch wrist, this one at 41mm was just a bit too large for a dress watch. I found the 39mm version with the date at 3 o'clock on leather with the rose gold indices to be a stunner. You can get the all stainless version in your price range grey market but I wasn't able to see that one. This may be one of the few cases where I would go for the nice alligator strap over the bracelet.
