I would go for the Hamilton. I have 6 of them and the quality is great. If you buy gray market you can make your dollar go very far.

Chaz, the Broadway has caught my eye as well. Oh so nice. I fancy the chrono. It's on my radar big time. How many times have I said that!!

Both are good watches. You cannot go wrong. However personally I would go with a Hamilton. Was one of the first watches I was looking at buying. The Seaview. But it's entirely up to you.

Bros:
Hammy vs Vic?
This is too perplexing a question this early in the AM.
Hammy vs INOX? Gotta muse on that one too!

Hammy playing it's A Game. But so is Vic.

ChuckW;2341098]Hamilton isn't known for dive watches


The Hamilton Frogman has a long and rich history and to this day have a very loyal fan base. Both the Frogman and Belowzero are exceptional watches and while Hamilton may not have a lot of different makes and models for divers...the divers that they do have to offer are amazing.

IMO just about any current iteration of Hamilton beats Victorinox to the punch.
However, the new INOX watches are beauties to behold (IMO of course)

Hammy has upped their game from the 1st Hammys (the 505 RR grade to be
specific) 505 was released for sale in late 1960's.Punchin way above it's class.
Ball RR grade watches too.
But that was then and this is now!

Just last month I was also looking to buy my first real watch, and in the end I decided to go with a Hamilton.

Could you clarify what prerequisites as a "real" watch ?

I was coming from a smart watch and before that hadn't worn a watch of any kind for 20 years, so almost any watch discussed on these forums would be considered "real" to me.
