You started with "I know", there's no need to explain any further to counter your own personal belief. :)

Is Movado and Taq HEuer the same type of quality? Both are swiss made. I know Tag has a more reputable name behind the watch community...but in terms of quality of the materials are both on par with eachother? Both brands carry watches from 1200-5k, with taq heuer carrying more expensive ones.
Movado is a fashion brand. Even the Movado you linked has a fixed timing bezel, which is practically useless. It's for looks only.

I would easily place Tag above Movado. There is a lot of hate against Tag in the watch community (almost Invicta level hate), but other than the Seiko movement fiasco I feel it is unjustified.

The general feeling on TAG is that they ruined a respectable watch company (Heuer).
That said, if you like it...it's your money and the watches themselves are fairly good quality however there's tons of options out there at that pricepoint.

IMO Movado are overpriced for what they are but thatis just my $0.02

Ok thanks, do you think movado are over priced because of they are more of a fashion watch? I mean Im ok with that but I am only worried about how much of the watch is swiss made compared to tag. or which out of the two brands lasts longer assuming I take care of the watch.

How are you guys finding the new at work nomos line.

https://www.nomos-store.com/en/Series/At-Work/

Comes in 39s now :0 I dig the red and blue bit silver back I don't know
Ohhh God. The only reason I don't own a Nomos yet is that everytime I get paralyzed by indecision. This is not helping.

That Metro Silver neomatk is sharp.

they are definitely just a fashion watch these days. TAG is definitely a step above in quality as their watches usually start around $1K and go way up from there, so they occupy a higher price range in general. I had a couple of TAG watches and they were well made, I would buy again based on that. I bought two Movados in my lifetime and they broke.
Honey, I can't go to bed yet. Somebody is wrong on the Internet!

I am happy someone mentioned this post. My normal watch I wear. I really wish I could find a decent royal blue w/ white stitching alligator look watch strap. I have ordered a few on amazon or ebay, but am yet to find one that was quality I was looking for.
