I'd definitely pick the Carrera over the Omega any day. Personally. Two entirely different watch categories though.

Any reason in particular or just personal preference?

For myself I'd choose the Omega because it's understated, elegant and wearable for any occasion.

They are both excellent watch companies however and I've owned Tag in the past. The choice is really up to your personal preference.

Not really, it's just lighter and more exciting to look at. Feels like the Omega's design has been around for ever.

Which isn't necessarily a bad sign - why change an excellent design? I just love my regular Speedy Pro. Can see myself buying the Alaska though but not quite sure about white dials.

That's true of course. Josh220 should definitely try them out in real. Personally, I'm not too fond of both models posted. They look somewhat overloaded imho. And for me a Seamaster needs a Navy strap.

I just made almost this exact decision. I love that Tag, but everyone I talked to that knew timepieces said go Omega. So I did.

That's a beautiful watch you got there. The Planet Ocean is among my favorite watches, and I hope someday I'll be able to buy one of my own.

Thank you! It's my first Swiss Automatic and I'm very excited. I was pretty well set on the classic 300M Co-axial, but saw this one for just a little more and fell in love.

Big as in the length of the links/band or with a larger face (case diameter)?

Great watch! Love to wind it up every single morning. My only concern is the contemporary bracelet....it looked better before imho. But it's also one of few items that look actually better with a black leather strap and white seams. Going to get one this christmas probably.

You can always order extra links from any watch manufacturer. Find a watch you like and spend the extra ~$100 to make it fit.

It was given to me by my father, it was his favourite watch. I wind it up every single morning too, never miss a day

What are people's thoughts on Invicta watches?I feel like it could never hold a candle to my Carrera. But until I can afford my Seamaster, I'd like something with a steel band for occasions that the Tag won't do.

This is a pretty good read about Invicta and why they are so cheap:
