OK, I've purchased 2 watches this year so far....Zixen and the turtle. Now I'm looking at one more for awhile. It will be one of the following...any input is welcome.

You've got some great options broken out there Greg! thumbsup.gif

I'm a big fan of the Kalmar2 (and H2O/Helberg watches in general). Love my Kalmar2 a ton, and while I don't have any experience with the ORCA line...the concept of being able to customize/modify different versions from the core is very cool IMO.

I don't have any experience with Certina in-the-metal, but they sure make a bunch of great looking options...seems to be a well regarded brand among WIS and that 2-register chrono is stunning!

Alpina is an underrated brand for sure, and you get a ton of watch for the money IMO! I'm a big fan of the brand and that 2-register chrono from their Alpiner 4 lineup is HOT! I would love to pick up either the 2-register chrono or the gmt version from that lineup sometime in the coming year for sure!

The NFW is doing the least for me out of this lineup, and I admit I have no experience with the brand...so can't be of much help. Based solely on design, it is dead last in this lineup for me...

You've got a tough decision ahead of you Greg!!!peace.gif

If you can decide between a 2-register chrono or standard 3-hander, that will REALLY narrow things down! ...especially if you are planning to go the chrono route. subtlelaugh.gif

I cannot argue with your logic Greg! thumbsup.gif
