Tudor Fastrider vs Omega Dark Side Decision

Okay guys, I wanted honest opinion on these two watches and wanted to ask the pros “in the forum” on any experience with quality over time if any of you have owned any of these.
I have narrowed my next purchase to these two watches (wanted something in black) and wanted input on quality, wearability, and anything else that any of you could provide. I have tried both on and like them both. More than likely, I will try and get them preowned to save some bucks. What do you think guys and thank you so much in advance.

I'd actually choose between classics that you could own forever and that will outlast your change in tastes over the years. These are nice, but to me may be watches you will trade in a few years. I never think it is a good idea to trade, and think its best to really think about what you are buying.

For me, if it had to be these two brands, I'd go Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch with Hesalite glass and Tudor Blackbay or BB58.

Just sayin

Not even close in my opinion. The Omega is the one. The only consideration would be the cost and while you can get a significant discount on the Tudor you will lose it on a trade or sell. I own the GSOTM and really like the watch. Go to Omega's web site and pull up the watch you are interested in and go to the bottom of the page and look at the watch with the different straps. Very cool. One to look at for the all black look is the new Seiko LX Black. It is my blacked out watch and I have the other straps in the LX line-up on order. Trusted Seller DavidSW has a group of pre-owned Omegas in the style you are looking at up right now. Buy pre-owned and save 45-50% off retail. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

Omega by a mile and I’m a tudor fan. Ceramic kills any type of cheap coating that will scratch up over time.

Easily Omega.
It’s a whole different league to Tudor.

Those two watches are not in the same league.
