    I think you'll be happiest with the Chopard.

    The obvious question, at least to me, is: Do you want a chrono or not?

    I like the non-chrono better. The power reserve made to look like a gas gauge is kinda cool.

    Non-chrono for me. It has enough of visual interest to not need the extra dials.

    Tachometer? Tachymetre? Tachymeter? Ick! About as useful as a slide rule, and since there are only 3 people left on the planet know how to use one and none of them actually has a use for it, this is a no brainer. Just say no to the dreaded "tachometer"!

    I've never heard of Chopard, but I wonder if they do a tramtrack or a railway version, as well as the car tyre version here.

    Keeping that theme in mind, it wouldn't make sense not to go for a chronograph, since everything else about its design is rather racy (red, stark and sporty looking).

    Somehow I prefer the less cluttered face without the chronograph. It seems to be easier to read in a hurry. Maybe the chrono has too much going on for me. I hope it's at least
    a 42mm face, otherwise it will be even more crammed and hard to read in a hurry...!
