« on: November 13, 2018, 07:10:58 AM »
I’m currently looking at Longines master collection moonphase. What more can I wish at this price?

Rm6.5k i suggest you go for function instead of branding.

Also depens what watch you have now.

Suggest that if it is your first mechanical watch,  safe bet is to check out any Seiko running a 4R movement. You can opt for a Cocktail time if you prefer dressy or a multitude of choice of divers which are arguable more versatile.
Either can be bought for under RM 2k.

Save the rest and see how much you enjoy mechanical watches first.

Then if the bug bites, continue saving so that you can enter a whole different world at around the RM12-15k mark. ;)

Or you could continue to feed the beast and get 2-3 Seikos.

There are lot of forum bros here who are experts at Seikos who can provide even further advise.

Seiko ticks all the boxes.

All made in house
Rich history
Mechanical movements
Wide range to choose from (divers: turtle, urchin, sumo, samurai, monsters.  dressy: cocktails, presage   solar: Astrons)
Comparing with rm6k swiss watches such as Ball, ML, which uses non in house movement, make a nice casing and sell at premium price, I would choose seiko.)

Another good choice is Junghans (very original design) or steinhart if you are ok with homage.

Personally, I would suggest a Tag Heuer Caliber 16 for that price range. A really beautiful watch and demands a good following and resale value. 7750 wont let you down :)
