So I have been very close to buying a couple watches but somehow the deal always fell through. Then I go back to square 1 and drive myself insane

10 watches that are driving me crazy

This will also be my first nice watch and daily wearer

I voted 10. Why ?

Well I think for a "first watch" and a "daily wearer" the Speedmaster offers a lot to its owner:

a) epitome of a "classic" watch (design trusty over 50 years)
b) chrono
c) well known brand and even more known watch
d) fits suit and jeans, business and free time
e) value as well as recognition value

I saw number 1, a few days ago for the first time in the Breitling Catalogue, liked it straight away

Never get a colored dial as a daily wearer. Metal Bracelet more adaptable to variety of situations. Chrono handy to have. Next Question..

No. 8

Just because I think it looks the best of those choices.
Masculine without trying too hard.
Attractive with good wrist presence without looking too "bling, bling".
Tastefull without looking tacky.

10 - because I agree with Mike and his reasoning.

I voted for the 42mm PO because I really like mine, however you aren't going to go wrong with any of them as a first watch. But you do realize that this is just a start and you really should have asked which order you should buy them in.:-!

Omega PO is a great watch, but some people do not realize the bezel difference, the 42mm has much smaller teeth than the 45.5mm. Aesthetically, I think the 45.5mm looks better, IMO.

I had a 45.5mm PO, it was too big for me. Some people can pull it off, unfortunately I am not one of them.

Same with me, it is like a plate on my wrist. It seems to sit differently than other larger watches. Sold the 42mm and have no PO now.
