    hey gang! which of these 3 would u choose and why? (not G-SHOCKS)

    OT(off topic)

    I have many Gs for the tough dirty work, so that isn't really a factor. Keep in mind I have a blingy Breitling already.

    I guess I want ur opinion on which one because I can't really decide! I have owned the chrono quartz aquaracer before and it was great. Dont know if I should get it again or one of the other 2 choices?

    They are all available in blk dials. Quartz or auto isn't really a deciding factor either. So , ur input is greatly appreciated. I know, I know the final vote will be my own but still value ur opinion.

    here are the 3 choices








    and here is the breitling I own now.


    I asked this vary question in the Tag forum aswell BUT thought ur opinion was just as valuable! Since this group is very Watch savy and WIS to the core!!!

    thanks guys and gals,

    Hi,
    take the Link - it's something special - mainly because of the bracelet. But it also got the best looks. The last one looks like a mixture between an Omega Seamaster and a Rolex SUB. The second one looks to "normal" (boring) and I don't like the red and green logo. The logo on the Link looks much nicer IMO.

    Greetings, Sedi

    You can disregard my answer because the only Tags I like are the Heuer remakes.

    The bracelet on no. 1 looks contrived, and when I look at the upper sub-dials I see a gas-mask.

    No. 2 looks disproportionately wide, and the hands get lost in the sub-dials.

    No. 3, as has been said, looks like a cross between a Sub and a Seamaster, but doesn't turn me off to the same degree as 1 and 2. It is also the only one with 'at a glance' legibility.

    I'm not sure that any of them are successful designs, to be honest, but if pushed would go for no. 3.

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    None, I would wait out for a Seamaster, I have TAG & Omega and the Seamaster is in a different league IMHO.

    I must admit I am not a fan of modern Tags.

    If you like chronos and have an open mind why not consider something like this. It is better in nearly every respect including build quality. It feels awesome on the wrist.

    Mitch i have to agree with you. Those tags just don't do it for me and that MRG looks sweet. especially the lume shot

    Thanks Q-6,
    No need to wait for a seamaster. I have had a blk dialed and a blue dialed seamater before(many times infact) I agree 100% in a league of there own for sure BUT I was wanting the softer lines of the TAG versus the more sharp lines of the Seamaster. The all brushed look is also a different look than the blingy Breitling.
