Hi guys, it's my first post on Watchuseek.
I have been reading the forums since some weeks ago, but I just got the urge to post today.
Got to tell you are an amazing community!
I have a dilemma about which one of these watches to get, the Stocker & Yale Sandy P490 or the Traser P5900
I love the simple look of this watches, so down to earth yet somehow outstanding, and the wonders of tritium at such affordable prices.
I think the Sandy has a swiss ETA mechanical movement, and the Traser has a quartz one. About the Sandy I don't care winding it manually or not being so accurate, and I will not care getting a new battery for the Traser after some years. But which one is more reliable?
I wonder which one has the best tritium vials? Heard somewhere that some P490 from the early 90's still shine like new, but I could bet Traser's tritium vials are top notch too.
I could get the P490 for $145 and the P5900 for $105 buying online, but at this price range, money is not an issue too, but the Traser's price is more attractive.
As a noob, I appeal to your wisdom as military watches connoisseurs. Which one should I get and why?
Don't know, maybe I should get both. Or maybe there is another one very much like them or better and I don't know it.
