    I'm looking for a watch to wear for biz casual and sometimes with a suit Which of these two do you like better in terms of looks and quality? I have relatively small wrists and forearms

    The gevril is brand new for about $550; the LaCroix is used for about $850

    Gevril

    I like the lacroix. The gevril looks even cheaper than $500!

    I'll go against the grain and say that of those two, I prefer the Gevril. I've never been one to go for watches with multiple dials, and although I usually like a black face on a watch, I don't think it works with that Lacroix. I like the Gevril's simplicity.

    Of those two, the Gevril looks far more formal then the Lacroix. The Lacroix looks like a pilot's or diver's watch with all those dials and is not the sort of watch one should wear with a business suit or in a semi-formal situation.

    I too prefer the simplicity and easy elegance of the Gevril over the clustered complicated look of the Lacroix, which I personally think looks awful with the black face and 3 dials.
