Anyone?

Here are two threads I just googled up. You've probably seen them, but in case you haven't.

I don't have personal experience with either, so I will defer.

Yes.

Does anyone have a Christopher Ward Malvern Aviator? What do you think of it? All the reviews I've read seem really positive, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy one, especially as it's very affordable. I just wanted to see what you guys think.

I have been eyeing a grey market Omega, this. Any objections? Any other suggestions?

Not my favorite Omega but nothing wrong with it. I much prefer the Speedy Pro or Planet Ocean (42mm black FTW)

Nice, the midsize? A guy came into our shop wearing one awhile ago, it was quite nice looking and a good size for him (he was shorter, but a little on the chubby side). You could also check out the 36mm Aqua Terra for something more versatile.
