    I would be looking at what movements are in them . My guess would be the day/ date has a different movement.
    Around that time Tissot and Omega used their own movements as well as Lemania movements in some of their chronographs .
    They all look great.

    All three are a ref. 44594, since the day-date variant did not have a separate reference number.

    Correct! The first two (from the left) are from 1970/71 and are fitted with the Gay Freres bracelet. Date only uses the 784-2 auto movement and the day/date has the 794. The third one (on the right) is later and from 1972, it has the longer Tissot stamped 8823 bracelet and a hexagonal bezel.
