Suggestions for Next Watch

Here is the current collection.

Panerai PAM 320

Omega Speedmaster Sapphire Sandwich

Omega Planet Ocean 43.5 Blue

Omega 120. This is a small watch (36mm) that I seldom wear due to the size but has great sentimental value.

In the past I have had several subs and sea dweller. I am not interested in any rolex watches.

I have had the Omega 300M, the 2500 PO, a couple 8500 POs, and a few different Aqua Terra watches.

I really like the Omega Racing White, but as you can see I have several Omegas, so thought of trying something different. I don't really have a dressy watch but seldom wear more than business casual. I have narrowed it down to these, but open to other suggestions.

My taste and experience in watches is similar to yours. I recently added the new IWC Pilot Spitfire Chronograph, and I'm having great difficulty peeling it from my wrist.

Of these two I’d pick the JLC. I have owned both brands and JLC is Superior. I would recommend seeing the JLC in person. Their stainless pieces with silver dials can be difficult to read. Not enough contrast between the hands, dial, numerals, etc. The internet photos are not a good representation of the actual contrast and colors.

I sold a JLC MUT Master Moon. Could not easily read dial. Silver hands on white face.

It is a beauty. Not sure I want a traditional flieger, I do like some of the Portuguese line. I'll look at IWC a little more.

Thanjs for the tip. That worried me also, even in the photos. I will not be making any decisions until the ADs are open and I can see them in person

Yes the IWC are beautiful! I also think it is time for some Rolex in your collection though. Good luck!
