Also, this one:

Those are great, especially that one in the second photo. It's a good thing there isn't an AD near my office or else I'd have to go drool over their counters at lunchtime.

I'm looking to keep it under $2,000.

I think it's the dreaded face on wrist shot that is making the 57 look bigger. It's 41.5 iirc and I'm sure frills you would wear it well.

I like the 57 a lot but I prefer the dial of my 44 speedy personally.

Under 2k sports watch is where I am looking right now for my next watch. If used is ok, I would look at Longines, Omega and Tudor although they might push your limit slightly over. Several German brands including SInn, Stowa and Junghans can also be found new under 2k.

I got my 2254.50 Seamaster for a hair under $2k as my first watch, and I love it. Not a single bad thing to say about it.
post #42891 of 48312
2254 was my first recommendation as well.

I think the Longines Legend Diver could straddle the casual/ business line as well. Can most likely grab a new example of that for $2k or less.

Yup, should have composed that pic a bit better.  The Omega website says 41.5mm case size but as usual it depends on the shape of the lugs, how it sits on one's wrist, etc.  

 

But hey, if I can rock a DSSD I can rock this one. Hah hah.

 

The RG "Paul Newman" Speedy is really, really nice and understated.  Retail is in the mid-$20s, though, so at that price point, even considering discounts, it's competing with a bunch of other options.

Yes really nice, but at that price point I'd be purchasing something else.

I want to spend 2.5 k in a watch. I am considering Tag Heuer vs. Alpina for that Price, what Brand do you guys think is better in quality?

post #42895 of 48312

I don't know much about Alpina, but go try some on and figure out a couple of specific models you like, then it will be easier to compare.  Much easier than comparing brands anyway.

Pretty sure this was already mentioned but was also told at an Omega boutique last week that all pieces were spoken for.

 

That said, I'm sure there are lots of resellers so yes get one :D

All pieces have been spoken for.

 

Including, perhaps (I will neither confirm nor deny, till August deliveries arrive), the one "I spoke for," c/o the NYC Omega Boutique.

 

:fonz:

^^Haha!

 

Frilly, the Snoopy looks best on your wrist in terms of proportion and lug shape.  It at least deserves more exploratory pics...just for the sake of research and informing the common man, of course.

 

I'd take the '57 myself.  Very attractive.

 

 

If you get the Snoopy, get the DSOM to match it, for when you're being Batman.
