I was shopping for a 289 and then the AD showed me a 376.. Now I must choose... I have no gold watches and have been shopping for one.. Now the beauty of the 376 has confused me. What would you choose and why? Thank-you

If only all of my decisions in life were as difficult as this one.

Both watches are amazing, but I'd personally go with the 289.

GL - I'm sure you'll be happy either way.

Starting to lean towards the 376... When I looked at it in person the case was absolutely stunning in white gold...

this is a gold watch

the 376 is nice no doubt but since they launched the 448/424 I lost my appetite on it given the price for a simple 2 hands watch.

it tends to turn more and more yellow, then again that could look really cool given the brown dial and gold hands. If I was going for a gold watch though i'd stick with rose or yellow gold over white.
