Hey fellow dive watch dudes,need a recommondation if okay.want to dip my toes into the boutique divers market and these two have surfaced as prime contenders in the 500.00 range which is my budget.used to be a big MKII collector but they seem to have gone upmarket and honestly would pick up a used blackbay instead.
the Steinhart specs look like great bang for the buck with an ETA elabore' grade movement and strong date mag which I need.fit and finish as well as a fat beefy crown are def a turn on.
however the modern Nacken with its snowflake handset and 9015 engine and what looks to be solid build quality seems like its also a good daily driver.
both seem to hold their value and I have never handled either in the metal.
I might be leaning toward the GMT on juby but not sure.do the powers that be have any input as to which would be tbe best choice.any imput would be greatly appreciated and thank you.
