Default Need help in decision making

Hello everyone,
It been a long time since I have posted on the forum. I have been mostly busy in trying to market my new Automotive detailing business. I hope everyone is well and I hope the forum has gotten more popular.
Now coming to the point. I was think of buy a new watch, here we go again lol, and while searching I came across two watches that peaked my interest. First one is frederique constant healey man challenge limited edition, the second watch is the Edox Delfin original day/date and the third one is Reymond Weil Freelancer. Both will be costing me $645. The first one is used. It had alot of fine scratches one the sides and one the back, which I think can be removed with a silver polishing cloth and I do not know yet if it has box and papers and the other two are brand new.
Now since I have never used Edox and Frederique constant, I have used Reymond Weil before, so I want your opinion on if they are worth the cost.
Here the pictures of the watches

Hi Abdullah, welcome back! The only brand I can attest to from ownership is an Edox, I have a moon phase Les Vauberts automatic and it is arguably my favorite watch (out of 18 or so). The craftsmanship and finish is superb and itís the only watch that never needs time adjustment directly out of my winder. Hope maybe it helps a bit. All three of your picks look beautiful. Good luck on a tough choice.

Thank you for insight. It does help me in how I view the company because since you are using their product and you are a watch freak too

Of those three watches... I'd be all over that Edox Delfin. That's a sweet piece.

Grab the FC and the RW quickly I say, provided they're the real deal.

FC full kit in good shape regularly fetch around $1k plus, a hundred or two less without B&P. The RW was retailing around the $750+ mark.

So you might be in for a potentially excellent deal

Interesting...... It does have alot of fine scratches all over the case. I am pretty sure, not 100%, that 90% will go out

Hey Abdullah, it's beyond cool to see you !!!

It hasn't been the same around here without you to be honest.
But am so happy that everything is going so well there, and that
we get to figure which of these showstoppers might be best to join
your collection sir.


Truly had no idea you could get any of these watches for such a
fantastic deal. So am shocked in a really good way, and say heck
yeah, they seem worth it !

The Frederique Constant is something you, or we just don't see
every day, and would be a terrific addition to any collection. Then
the Edox takes your breath away, and that's just from your pic !

The RW even adds a Tourbillon personality into the mix. ..They are
all extraordinary imho !

Wishing you not only good luck, but great luck, and hope you have
just the best time deciding on all of this.

So so awesome to see you sir !!!

I was waiting for your in put Atomic ... How are you? I hope all if well on your side.
I am also leaning a little towards to constant and the Edox ..... Reymond Weil is also a beautiful watch but a little on the thinner side for my taste but I like the brand....
Well on Monday I hope I make up my mind and introduce a new baby to my collection

Am doing alright on this end sir. Thank you !

Hope all is terrific with you, and yours' there as well !
Once again, it's just great to have a chance to talk with

direction you go. Or win win win actually !!! Any one of
them would be the perfect choice actually. So really think
you will be happy with whatever decision you make.

Hope you keep enjoying, and a BIG congrats ahead of time !

The Frederique constant does not have any box or paper etc I just confirmed that.... Only the watch is being sold. The other two are brand new.
