    When you think about it, bought new and with no regard for historical significance, the Speedmaster Racing has better specs than the Moonwatch.

    Good price if the Racing is that cheap! I agree that the Racing has better (more modern) specs than the Moonwatch, but most importantly it fits better on my wrist being a 40mm.

    I'm choosing between the following watches:

    1. Longines Hydroconquest 41mm (L3730.4.56.5)
    Automatic
    Black dial
    $1,275

    2. Tag Heuer Formila 1 41mm (WAZ1112.BA0875)
    Quartz
    Black dial
    $1,300

    Leaning towards the Longines, since I'm hoping to get an automatic at this price range, but I'm more familiar with Tag since my dad is a huge fan. However, I've read that a lot of watch connoisseurs don't really consider Tag to be a very respectable brand (correct me if I'm wrong though). Given the steep cost, which one would keep its value longer and would get more nods of approval from watch collectors?

    This will be my first foray into fancy watches, and I'm definitely no expert on this subject matter yet. But I'm planning to keep this for a long time and maybe even pass it on as a future family heirloom.

    Not really open to buying anything pre-owned, so please avoid suggesting that route. No Rolexes and Omegas for now too, since di pa kaya ng bulsa! Hehe.
    For 70k would suggest to get a secondhand Omega - either Speedmaster Reduced or Seamaster Pro. These would fit your budget if you squeeze an extra 10k more.

    Not to mention that these watches surprisingly appreciate. I got my Speedmaster Reduced 2 years ago and price is now about 20-25% higher than when I bought it.

    Omega > Longines, Certina, Tissot, Tag, etc

    Speaking of flipping Omegas - this is quite a bargain, FOIS Speedy for 185k.

    Local mall here. It was around late 2012 so most probably phased-out already. I was impressed with the water resistance of the Timex worn by the late SILG Robredo so bought this in memoriam of him and timex hehe.

    Changed the strap though since it wasn't as durable.

    This is the hand-wound variant right?

    The Sub is a key choice for many but I prefer a different design - fliegers or chronographs.

    To those who may not know, Rolex and Tudor are from the same company. They also use the same movements.

    If fliegers and chronos are your thing, may i suggest the breguet type XXI?

    Flyback chronograph function? Check!
    Flieger? Check!
    Brand pedigree? BIG CHECK!

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
