I am looking to purchase my first proper watch and I have narrowed it down to two styles, although they are different in styles could someone provide a rough guide on which one is the more prestigious (if any), and some thoughts on the styling of both. My aim for whichever one I choose is to replace the strap with a brown alligator one.

Clifton 10052 automatic watch for men - buy Baume et Mercier

Baselworld 2010: Maurice Lacroix Pontos Day Date | Perpétuelle

Also could I have some guidance on the overall brand image for both Baume and Maurice, is one generally thought of as better?

I did look at spending a bit more to get the Clifton full calendar with a blue face, but thought at 43mm it would be a bit too large for my 6.5 inch wrist.
I personally love ML and would go for the one you got pictured in a second. B&M does have it's place though. I love some of their Capeland series. My opinion, ML is higher on the rung though especially their Masterpiece collections some of those pieces are stunningly gorgeous. My understanding the Masterpiece collections are all in house movements. The ML Gravity is amazing but I am attracted to those pieces outside the norm. Another is the Lune Retrograde Limited Edition gorgeous.
