    Wich one of the Professionale, single time zone, GMT or chrono? black? waffle dial???

    Been eyeballing these 3 and I'm in a great hurry to choose 1 before I miss out but I'm so indecisive. Size wise I'm guessing all the same except for the chrono being a bit thicker? I've read about the fantasticly build case on many occassions, never seen 1 in the flesh though...
    Any thoughts??
    Best regards,

    I have owned a standard Pro, a GMT, a GMT Waffle, and currently have a Crono Waffle. I couldn't decide either, so I guess that's how I ended up going through them all. I have the bracelet on the Crono and I wore the standard Pros on BC rubber and the illusive Pro bracelet. IMO, the standard Pro models are nice strap watches, but they transform on the bracelet if you can get it. The Crono is a serious chunk, and I really recommend the bracelet to keep it balanced. The Crono is awesome and completely unique, but you'll definitely feel it on your wrist. Of the non-crono models, I think the standard GMT was my favorite. You can't really go wrong though!

    Hard to tell because each available is unique, thing is crono or not, now regular pro no my cup of tea just for the flat screws.

    Top for me Pro crono waffle blue, Pro crono wavy black, Pro waffle black, Pro waffle GMT.

    Pro waffle without doubt for me, first blue then black. Next up is the power reserve model, though that seems to be a very rare beast. Would love to get my hands on one...

    I have the Pro GMT waffle dial and I love this watch.

    That said If I had to choose one Pro model at this juncture, I think I might opt for the chrono.

    The Pro Chrono remains one of the most identifiable, distinctive chronos in the world.I recently noted that I have moved away from chronos over the past few years but if I felt I needed to own at least one chrono, it would be difficult to consider any other but a Professionale.

    Torromoto...not trying to veer off subject but...has anyone ever seen a 2012 Pro Titanium Black Bezel Crono live and in the metal? Did they even produce it? There are pictures of the Pro gold crono + black bezel (which I do not like too much)but I have never seen a live picture of the Pro Titanium...

    I don't need a chrono function myself, so I would never choose a chrono over a plainer, simpler dial. That said, my personal favorite is the black dial yellow accents "RM" power reserve version--love the color scheme. Second choice would be the yellow dial regular Pro--normally I don't like yellow dials, but this one is quite special--a true beauty. I think the regular black dial is too plain, and I don't like waffle dials--I'd rather have some sort of sunburst pattern if they are going to give texture to the dial. Be warned though, it is a big watch, and wears big--I have 7 1/4 inch wrists, and though I can pretend it fits (and I did pretend quite a lot), it ended up leaving bruises on my protruding wrist bone (as did my 44mm Panerai)--the main reason I got rid of both the Pros and the Pams. Good luck in your search.

    Really like the Ti w/black bezel shame that there is no ti bracelet.
