Looking for an everyday watch in next month or so. I’m looking at Omega Aqua Terra, IWC Mark XX, Tudor Black Bay (new meta cert), Longines Zulu Time. Thoughts?
Ideally want Rolex Explorer II but that would take forever given the no supply right now.
If the rolex is what you want, go second hand....
I guess I’ll go to an AD and find out how to get used Explorer II most up to date specs as possible. Do you know if they are still above retail price?
Longines Hydroconquest. Similar look to the Explorer but even more stylish. A fraction of yhe cost too.
They're listing new on Chrono24 for ~$11k. But, those are listings that haven't sold yet! So, I'm sure you could negotiate down from there. Not that much over MSRP at that point!
Can’t go more everyday than an AT.
I would chose between Omega AT or Longines Zulu.
I like the look of the Omega especially of it's movement but at the end in relation to the price the Longines gives you so much more.
So I think Longines is little ahead of Omega.
Oh wow I had now idea they were so expensive! I could buy two GS Snowflakes for that price
That’s true. Omega does have a great movement though. What do you think about the IWC in comparison? I don’t really need the GMT function on the Zulu but it looks better than the new conquest to me
Get the Rolex. It’s what you want, accept no substitute.
You can get the Rolex with a couple month wait but you can get it at the secondary market. The premium is not like some of the other hype models.
The 8900 movement has a jumping hour hand that will give you easy traveling capabilities.
