    Which PR 516? Heritage T071.430.16.051.00 or T044.430.26.051.00

    This has also been posted in the Tissot forum. Hope it's OK to post it here as well.

    I was set to price out and purchase The Heritage T071.430.16.051.00;
    Official Tissot Website



    when I read another thread discussing T044.430.26.051.00;
    Official Tissot Website



    Now they are very similar, to say the least, but the T044.430.26.051.00 adds a bit of the diver look that is very smart. I haven't seen this one in the flesh yet, but I just wondered what you all thought. Technically they are both pretty much the same except for the bevel and the T044.430.26.051.00 being a little wider and a touch slimmer.

    Just wondering which you all like better. Am I missing something that would make one of them the better watch?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    That's why I included the links. They go right to Tissot's site with pics and specs. I've never tried posting pics directly before. I"ll give it a try and see what happens.
    It was easier than I thought.
    Thanks, Larry

    I'm just bumping this one time in hopes that someone will have an opinion to share.
    I'm very interested in your thoughts.

    GL for me. It's closer to the original and the newer 516 is a poor interpretation of the original, IMHO.

    They should have stayed with this one:












    For me, every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did, and I get the sweats. I go in and start working. I'm not sure where I'm going - if I knew where I was going, I wouldn't do it. Frank Gehry

    So Ohmegah, if you were to chose between the two in my original post, which would it be?

    As I said in my post, get the GL.

    I like the diver style more so, cuz I have a thing for that look.
