Got a Omega Aqua Terra last year, and looking for another. Love the seamster 300m but also love to have a chronograph, what do you think is a good next buy?
Can't go wrong with either, but my vote is for a 3861 Speedmaster. Now, sapphire or hesalite?
I like sapphire over hesalite but the manual wind bothers me.
See, that's one of my favorite parts. Winding it each morning as I drink my coffee....
The Seamaster is beautiful, I just had issues with the helium valve and no taper bracelet....
I like the white dial as it looks special and seems to suit me.
Looks so good on the black rubber strap too....
They are all wonderful. My vote goes for the white Seamaster but it really depends on your wrist. I would try it first especially because of the helium valve. I have the blue version and have no problem with it but I know other watch enthusiasts have had issues.
love the black-white contrast and chrono has a textured dial so go for it
If manual wind is a problem for you, you'd have the same issue with the current gen Speedmaster 57. The previous gen (from 2013) is automatic, but it's also quite a bit thicker than the new manual wind version. I have that white dial Speedmaster Racing and even though I love the look of the watch, the black rings around the sub dials along with the size/design of the hands can help make it difficult to read the time at a glance.
White SMP (totally not biased)🤣
