I'm getting my first real luxury watch and I'm more or less set on getting a Fifty Fathoms (original, not Bathyscaphe) in black. But I keep flip-flopping between the 3-hand version and the flyback chrono. I prefer the aesthetics of the chrono version but I can't help but wonder if I'll end up regretting going this route. The watch's history is one of the major appeals for me and, in that regard, I understand that the 3-hand version is the choice of "purists."
Thoughts? Anyone own either version and regret their decision?
