    It needs a new strap. This one can go twice around my wrist. Previous owner must have been a giant.
    What strap would you choose for this watch?

    I really like that watch face. Just beautiful! Congrats! My first thought for a band was a dark brown classic band, not too thin or too thick, with a small grain in the leather and simple curved buckle, of medium bullk. But there could be many band styles to go with that watch. You just have to look at them or picture them and see what appeals to you the most and what would go best with the clothing you wear.

    Congratulations and enjoy this great watch purchase!

    Would choose simple, plain yet classy looking black leather, always versatile and understated, for the new watch strap.

    I had it repainted as it was in horrible condition. What wasn't horrible was the price. Lucky find.

    The watch itself is rather small so I'd see a finer buckle on black leather strap. Nothing crocodile like!

    Drool.

    I was looking at hard at an Omega yesterday, and almost pulled the trigger on a Hamilton Jazzmaster. Rolex stock was mostly forgettable, except for the stuff WAY outside my budget.

    Side question: I make 20 years with my company soon, and they give us a watch to mark the occasion... Thankfully without any cheesy company signage added to the dial etc. We are given 20 models to choose from. I have pretty much made up my mind on which watch I will go with. However, curious of your thoughts (brand-wise) what you'd look hard at out of: Tag, Ebel, Baum & Mercier, or Raymond Weil.

    I don't have the list in front of me but here's what I remember:

    -Tag: variations of the Aquaracer and Formula 1. One was a quartz movement and the others were auto's.

    -Ebel: 2 dress watches, small cases. Both are autos.

    -B&M: 2 leather strap watches. One a round face and the other rectangle. Both quartz.

    -RW: several variations, including dress and even a sports chrono. Mostly autos but a couple quartz.

    Sorry for the sidetrack, and lack of model information, but I'm mostly interested in thoughts brand-wise. I have an idea which brand I most respect but it's been a while since I've shopped brands.

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you very much for your response, Chuck. When I get back to the office on Monday, I'll post models to allow you more experienced gentlemen to weigh in.

    I'll go ahead and say that the three I was most interested in was the round case Baume, the Tag Formula 1, and one of the RW that looked like a dive watch (of sorts). I'd really never had a interest in RW but a jeweler told me that the guy used to work for Rolex and that he's building very high quality watches. I've no idea if that's true, as I didn't look up any brand history as of yet. All of the watches available to choose from are in the $1,800-2,500 range. So I'm assuming none of them sport an in-house movement. Thanks again.

    Great gift for 20 years!
    I’d go Tag followed by B&M
    I love my Aqua Terra but I wear my Tag Carrera Calibre 5 3x more. No the movement isn’t in house but they are built like tanks and so damn Comfortable. The Blue Bezel Aquaracer is really nice.

    If it’s an option check out Oris. They are reasonably priced, super stylish, well built, and very well respected.
    I like the 65 Diver and the Aquis.
    65 Diver
    Love the “retro” styling and it looks great with both the leather strap and bracelet

    Aquis wears a lot smaller than its size and has one of the nicest bracelets I’ve ever seen.
    Only problem is it has a weird case that’s hard to find leather straps for without going custom. I love the contrast between the black bezel and blue dial + it’s got an exhibition back that shows of its pretty red rotor

    If you go with the B&M these to stand out for me
    Classima elegant and rugged. The bracelet can be worn with jeans or a suit and imagine a brown leather strap on it!

    The Clifton Maybe not quite as versatile but it’s stunning

    You could also always ask them to max out and you will pay the difference for a Speedy ;-)

    That Baume Clifton is a beauty. I've had several Tags and I'm just a bit tired of them right now. Great watches. My first "luxury" watch was a blue Tag Kirium for my 7th Anniversary. At the time that 37 mm looked huge, lol.

    That blue Aquaracer is very nice.

    All of them are pretty equal brand-wise. They’re all upper echelon department store type pieces. I personally had a quartz aqua racer a few years ago and quite liked it. I also like the look of many of the B&M dress watches.

    Thanks for your feedback. And I get that too, about ranking. My watch collection is very small and likely pathetic to most, and all gifts except one (a Casio Rangeman that I got myself). It's mostly Invicta watches that my wife bought me (likely off QVC or from Costco), what I believe is a very well done fake Breitling auto, a classic rose gold Patek that was gifted to me when I got my first management job (it was my father in law's father in law's watch. Like how I did that?). The Patek rarely gets worn, as I couldn't replace it, and the Casio is my daily driver which works well in a chemical plant. And if I ever had to go off grid, the Casio would be a blind reach.
