    Chrono question/recommendation?

    I have a question on chronos...

    Can someone recommend a chrono that has the numbers on the tachymeter in a consistent direction? I HATE how the orientation of the numbers flip between 200 and 240 as well as 85 and 80 on most chronos.

    I want something with a date complication. Would prefer something between $1000 to $3000 online.

    My Speedy Pro has all the numbers oriented in the same direction. You can pick up a pre-owned one under $3k ... barely.


    Edit: Oops. Didn't notice you wanted a date complication.

    Yes, the Speedy Racing checks all the boxes too. Unfortunately, I already have an Omega and was hoping for something different... Otherwise this would be an excellent choice.

    A couple of Sinn options. The 144 (first picture) is about $2,500. The other is $3,500, but if you can find them slightly used that should bring it in under $3,000.

    The Tudor Prince chrono (or something like that) has a date and a tachymeter with correctly oriented numbers. Not sure on the price, but its an option.

    I still prefer the Sinn 144 above.
