I have finally made a decision on my second watch. It wasn't an easy decision. I debated purchasing a Rolex Sub and a Rolex GMT Rootbeer and pairing it with a brown leather strap. Then I debated Panerai but finally settled on a decision I am quite happy with.
This afternoon I am purchasing a Omega Speedmaster Professional with a black alligator strap. I may also purchase a light brown leather strap as well. As a toddler in the watch admiration society, I thought it was appropriate to purchase a manual wind watch that is fairly priced.
I fear I am in trouble...as this new watch fascination of mine is not a cheap one.
I would buy the bracelet version, then add a strap. I believe it is a $100 difference now, upfront. Omega bracelets are not cheap. I believe the one for the planet ocean is $1,100. I assume the Speedy is around the same. so it REALLY makes sense to purchase it now.
