Hi everyone. Looking for some opinions please.

Recommended Posts

Greetings everybody

I’ve just joined this forum and would love some thoughts on my next purchase. 
I currently own a Rolex Datejust which I bought new in 1998 and an Omega Planet Ocean, which I purchased new in 2010. I’d like to add to my collection and have seen some cracking prices for the Omega Speedmaster (Sapphire Sandwich) and the Chopard Mille Miglia XL 2016. I don’t know much about Chopard, but the looks are appealing to me. The Speedmaster, I think, speaks for itself.  
I would welcome anyone’s thoughts on these please. 
Thanks in advance.

I sometimes feel like abandoning the familiar classics in favour of something a bit different but although the Chopard is undoubtedly a fine watch, it just doesn't appeal to me aesthetically in the same way as the Speedmaster. The Chopard is a big watch yet even with that 46mm case, the dial seems choc-a-bloc... It just does not have the elemental feel of the Omega - a watch that remains sublime; giving neither too much or too little.

Thanks for the welcome and replies. I’ve just found out I’m being made redundant so have put the purchase on hold. I have decided upon the Omega though. Cheers

Sorry to hear that and I hope things work out. Excellent decision on the Speedy, though.
