    Can you help me choose between these 4 chronographs?

    Decisions, decisions...

    Rolex Daytona (Used)
    IWC Portugese (New Ref 3714)
    Omega Speedmaster (Vintage Pre-Moonwatch Ref 105.012)
    Heuer Carrera (Vintage Ref 1153 Cal 11)

    Prices aren't as much of an issue since they fall between a small enough range.

    Love to hear y'all opinions. I know they are no way apples to apples here, which makes it more likely for me to pull my hair out.
    Current: (In order of acquisition)

    1. Rolex Submariner Green Dial & Bezel "Hulk"
    2. Grand Seiko 1st Gen 6146-8000 Gold Cap
    3. Nomos Zurich Weltzeit
    4. Cartier Must De Cartier Vermeil 925

    Next?

    Even though all chrono's, very different styles.

    The Portuguese is a dress watch, 2 vintages and Daytona.

    Whilst all are nice, the other 3 can be had at a later date.

    Without a doubt, the Rolex Daytona is tops!

    Another vote for the Rolex. I have owned five over a long life and not one of them has ever had a problem of any kind. True, they need routine maintenance, but so do all mechanical watches. Read up on the company. They are worthy people who make a superb product.

    For some reasons, I was expecting you to rhyme... I've been up too long. :)

    I actually haven't spent much time with a Daytona. Looks like a trip to the AD is in order.

    Mikey, thanks for the good pic here:

    I have a green sub, so good to see the pics of them side by side. Any reason you picked the white dial over black?

    The gold on black didn't make each other shine for some reason..black was too matte dull..and the gold kinda faded in...
