this is my first post here in the world of HAQ-watches. I need some help deciding between these two watches.
I have read most of the massive thread regarding the Conquest VHP and the comparison with the DS2 and the old VHP from Chris01.
I am leaning towards the Conquest VHP and can get it for a pretty good price, but I have some doubts and I could also get the DS2 for less money.
Is the finishing on the Longines (case) a step up from the Certina or am I just paying for the name (/movement/marketing) here?
Regarding the movements I am wondering if the new movement (L288.2) really is a step up from the ETA 251.264. The specification is a bit tighter within 5 seconds and it at has the GPD-system/ perpetual calendar. It seems from the VHP thread that it is a bit luck from the draw and the right wearing pattern that the watch will be within these specs though. Additionally it has no jewels and I am concerned with the longevity of the movement (I know jewels don’t mean = quality but still).
Am I missing something else?
Thank you everybody, I wish you a happy new year!
