    Choosing a chronograph

    I've finally added a chrono to my collection. Ultimately I think I'd like the zenith el primero, possibly an omega speedy pro. For now, I was able to acquire this tag heuer monaco cs2111 and it us definitely a nice, sharp looking piece and very comfortable. It'll do until I get the chrono I'm really looking for. Just a quick pic below to share. Looking forward to wearing this one!

    I just don't see the point of adding a stop-watch to a watch.

    Why not? It's a hell of alot more useful than a moonphase, or a day/night indicator.

    I think it's there to justify the presence of two additional side buttons on the watch.

    Beautiful piece man! But why didn't you get the speedy; it's about
    the same price used; not to mention the history

    Re: Choosing a chronograph

    I like the look of a chrono probably moreso than the actual functionality personally. And I was able to get this one at a deal that was too good to pass up. Guess I'll hang onto it for now and see if I still have the desire to go dor the zenith or speedy
