Choosing a watch

I would like your advice in selecting a watch.  I am choosing between two gold watches:  the IWC Portugese with the seven day power reserve and the Vacheron Patrimony Contemporaine Self Winding.  I understand that they are two different watches and my question may be a bit analagous to asking a wine lover if I should buy a first growth bordeaux over a California cabernet but I thought I would ask your advice.

Both are gorgeous watches. To me the answer lies in what type of watch are you looking for primarily; dress or more sporty. The IWC is more sporty to me, while the VC is more of a dress watch. Good luck! Jacob

Hello and welcome on the Lounge, The Vacheron Patrimony Contemporaine Self-winding, is to die for. Best regards, Berny
Hi and welcome, I feel the IWC would look better in steel as

it is more sporty, however the Patrimony Contemporaine is such a phenomenal design that I would say go for the VC

... for sheer understated, uber-cool, smile-knowingly-to-yourself sophistication... go for... the VC.

Hm. I know only one way to solve such kind of problem. I offer to buy both of them. If you decided to buy only one watch I suggest to define what kind of work do you have, what is your business style. If you need to use intensive and agreesive style, more sprorty watch will fit better IMHO.
welcome to the Lounge :-) (nt)

I find the RG Patrimony to especially beautiful

If you were thinking of them both in WG I'd consider the Portugese more but since you're looking at it in RG I'd have to say the Patrimony. But I advice you to follow your heart and pick the one that appeals to you the most! Please do post pictures of whichever watch you decide upon! Kind regards Martin

Many thanks to all of you who offered your opinions in response to my question.  I decided upon the Patrimony in yellow gold and it is lovely.  I adore it.
