Interesting dive watch Mr. Moo.  Thicker than a DSSD!

 

Bams, it sounds like you are settling on the Zenith.  Is that what your heart is set on?  You have a Longines, why no continue to look around?  Go to something like prestige time, swiss luxury, or the finest watches and look through a ton before deciding.  Those sites tend to have a ton with decent stock photo type pictures of each.

 

In other news, my fiancee said she had the GMT engraved with our wedding date on the back of the case.  I cringed a little but it is a piece I was not going to get rid of anyway.

I lucked out my fiance knew I was quite the watch nut and knew the only watch I'd ever get engraved would be a Reverso, so my Explorer 2 survived the engagement period unscathed.  But since this watch is a keeper its not really bad, hopefully the engraving is is simple and just on the case back.

I was at the tailors today and saw a PP 3712/1a and a rose gold Lange 1 Daymatic at the same time. I nearly fainted.

But were the TAILORS wearing those timepieces?

Do you have any recommendations for a good time piece that is around 2-300 dollars, with a leather band and a more minimalist size? I'd prefer a sapphire crystal if they are used on watches in hat price range, as I have a tendency to scratch my cheap athletic watches. Thanks!

post #24641 of 38523
what type of watch you looking for, dress, sport, diver, chronograph etc?
post #24642 of 38523

More on the dressier side. I have a Luminox that I use for sport, but it really doesn't go well with work clothes.

Seiko 5 has a bunch of "dressy" options. The Seiko SARB017 or Seiko SARB071 may stretch your budget a bit, but great watches. 

post #24644 of 38523
there are quite a few Longines dress watches that would be within your price range.

edit: wrong suggestion, misread question. seiko and citizens
