From those choices, the Tudor.

The "Omie" isn't a "Speedy" which makes a changie. I like that DeVille, you never see them.

The Tudie - sorry, Tudor - is a hair too big for the style I reckon. Overall, the size is OK if you have bigger wrists than average, and it's thinner than the other Black Bays. But I don't think the dial design works at that size.

The Solo is a bit too small for its thickness.

The SInn is just a bit odd.

I'd pick the Omega.

Looks like the Tudor's already sold - it would have been my choice. I don't like the looks of that Omega, the Bremont's boring. That Sinn, on the other hand, looks cool.

The Omega PR, naturally..I own 3 of them and like them very much..if you don't jump on it, I may as I don't own the white dialed version..this is the older model of this PR, btw, and is the version which first drew me to these DeVille PRs...I would offer $1,800 and agree to pay $1,900..

Cripes. The dial work on that Bremont is so sloppy it looks like it's not worth anywhere near two grand.

Tudor here.

None of the above.

The Omega would be my choice but me/myself/I needs more contrast between the hands and dial. Blued hour & minute hands would be perfect for that watch imho.

Sinn is too busy, even for me. Bremont and Tudor are boring. Omega all the way, it makes me want to live in a castle.

The Omega, because I really enjoy long powerful lugs.

I am not seriously looking at any of them, the point was/is to see what different folks thought about a variety of choices in the same price range. So far, it seems like a toss up between the Omega and Tudor.

The Sinn. I mean - unlike Svaglic, I consider this as being a very theoretical situation, where You either spend the money on one of these, or otherwise You will be shot. Because in reality I would never spend any money on any of them.
The Sinn is special. All the rest look like "Daisy Miller at 2K".
