    The Sinn.

    The B&R is a modular chrono, the Bremont is 7750 chrono with a register deleted and the day indication deleted, the Sinn is a 7750 with its full complement of registers and day/date. The Sinn has the nicest movement amongst the three and doesn't delete functionality for the benefit of style.

    The one Mike suggests is great (for a modular movement chrono), but it is also in an entirely different price range....

    Hard to beat the Sinn for value - quality, stylish, strong resale and relatively rare.

    I do like the Bremont though... but hard to justify for the money.

    Love the day and date, as well as the look.

    Personally I prefer the The Bell & Ross BR 126 Chrono based on appearance but i think the sinn would be the best value and function for the price.

    The Sinn.

    Other than the value angle which has been bandied about (with which I fully agree), it just plain looks better than the other 2.

    The B&R looks a lot nicer in photos than it does in real life and the Bremont, while nice, isn't something that really "pops". Especially when you factor the price in.

    Cheers.

    I don't know enough about the B&R to make the call accurately, except that I'd agree that they don't look as nice in the metal. IMO. Speaking of accuracy- how well-regulated are B&R watches? All things considered ( and based on what I *do* know about the watches ) I'd pick the Sinn. But my favorite is the Bremont. COSC. It's got the super hard case, superior crystal treatment, display back, and overall best physical presentation. But it is pricey.

    Sure are some smart posters on these boards. You got some great responses.

    You are overpaying (a lot) for either the Bell & Ross or the Bremont. Frankly I think they suck.

    Sinn is the superior watch for less money, this is a no-brainer.

    But, if you are considering dropping $5k for the Bremont, you got a great response from the person who linked the Glashutte, which, for a few more $k, is a tremendous watch, they are really beautiful, quality pieces and in my opinion destroy the B & R and Bremont, Glashutte fit and finish is superior in every way.
