First (Luxury ??) Mechanical Watch

Hi all, I am in a deep dilemma. I intend to buy my first mechanical watch in the next 2-3 months. I am not able to decide between the following two: 1. Henry Archer Nordso 2. Christopher Ward 12 steel case and bracelet Kindly help me decide which is the better watch. I know there is a price differential. Let price not be the deciding factor. I would prefer suggestions based on factors other than price.

I only chose B, because I never heard of the other brand.


Yeah, neither qualify as "luxury."

Hehe. Hence the ??. However for a person who has been brought up on $30 Quartz watches my whole life this sort of qualifies as "Luxury" for me.

It's only recently that I have begun to appreciate the beauty of Automatic watches. Hence my first watch has to be a beater which I can use on a regular basis.
