    I like both models, which one do you prefer? Also, which of the two has a better design?

    Tag or Breitling?

    I hate TAGs really, and I'm someone who's quite interested in watches. I feel like they're way too commercialized and that makes them look cheap and sellout to me, not a respectable swiss brand. I mean when you buy one a chunk of the money you're paying for it is going towards the massive advertisement bill, you're certainly not getting what you pay for with one of those.

    I'm not sure about Breitling yet, like the look of their stuff but you should research re-sale value and things just to get an idea of their worth.

    I think the one on the right looks more appealing however if you are planning to spend that amount of money on a watch, do look at Patek Phillipe watches Or hublot as i think they are the most eye catching and best looking watches on the market.

    Patek would be well above this price range wouldn't it?

    OP I would look at Omega, they're on the same league as Rolex and this sort of price range.

    If you're actually looking at buying a legitimate watch at that price point, look at the Omega speedmaster.

    Yeah I definitely agree, TAG seems to carry a fashion rep more than anything. Thanks for your input. also, are you a bracelet type of person or a leather strap? I much prefer the leather strap.

    Patek can be very expensive, I also like Hublot as well. Maximum that I would spend would probably be 6k.

    I have seen quite a few lovely Omega watches. also, I dislike rolex watches purely because of the image they portray. (Drug dealer image)

    You must be a fan of Omega? I'm pretty drawn into the leather strap Breitling if I'm honest.

    Yeah I think the overall design is lovely but I'm edging more towards the other one now.

    Yeah the design is sharp, simple and effective.

    Really? I actually love the white threading on the strap.

    There's something special about Omega's tbh.
    I don't like the white stitching on the Brietling, it looks gaudy.

    Each to their own I suppose, I think it ties in nicely with the watch.

    What's your opinion on Cartier watches?

    dunno, but I'd assume they're a 'fashion' watch and not worth the money

    I like both steel straps and leather straps, was thinking about switching between them on a watch every few weeks.

    Have you thought about getting an omega instead? Breitlings don't hold their values, even the limited edition ones I've read so it makes me think they're a less respected watch brand.
