Looking for dress/tool watches, preferably metal watch straps.

For best cost effectiveness, I'm prioritizing pre-owned watches.

Brand in mind are
-Maurice Lacroix Aikon 42mm Automatic Blue Dial
-Longines HydroConquest 43mm Automatic Blue Dial

Wondering if there are reliable source for these 2 watches above, and the estimated pricing

Thank you

The Aikon is a nice piece in the metal, I'd say just drop by ADs n ask around for a dsicount. Now the thing is though, IINM it uses integrated bracelet system so swapping straps have to plan ahead n get oem. Hydroconquest also good choice, n I would suggest digging thru the sale section of thebforum to see if there r any available. Good luck on ur hunt  :thumbsup:
