So, I was at my local dealer today, looking at what they had to offer, and two pieces caught my eye:
Man, I just couldn't decide. I was also looking at the Carlos Coste:
To be honest, though, the Coste, nice as it was, was really too big. Not so much in diameter, but in height.
So, I'm torn between the two watches above. The TT3 has a funky clasp; not weak or cheap; just funky in its' design. I did, however, really like the diamter, which is 43.5mm. The TT1 Diver was sweet. Nice and hefty.
The dealer gives me a 20% discount because my company buys a lot of watches from them. I could get both of the watches for some pocket change under two grand.
If you were going to pick one, which would it be, and why?
Steve, this one is a no brainer to me. Oris is nice, good, even excellent - but Omega is a superior watch. (Just don't tell Houst-zin I said this).
My Omega SMP is the yardstick I use to measure all other luxury watches - sort of the industry standard of excellence. I have some watches that surpass my Omegas and many that don't, but the brand delivers quality, value and excellent fit and finish. The history is fun too.
Don't let a pretty red rotor turn your head.
