    Hi and welcome to the forum. I personally think your Chopard MM is the better watch but it's your decision - you've gotta go with what you like.

    Attention all n00bs! This is how you do it!

    Welcome bubito, that's a good first post. You added pictures, and didn't ask for a comparison of TAG, Rolex, or Omega to any other brand. 2 interweb points for you.

    Aesthetically, I prefer the Chopard. It's closer to my comfort zone in size, I really like panda dials (white with black subdials), and the bezel & strap go with it well. While there isn't much that's awe-inspiring about a Valjoux 7750, it is a proven caliber. I'm not much for the Swordfish - never liked the goggles - but it is a nice watch quality wise. I think there are a couple threads about Graham in this forum and the High End Forum. Try searching either "Swordfish" or "Graham" in both places to see what has been previously said.

    Bubito9512, I would not let go of the Chopard. IMHO, the Chopard is a watch that you will not look at 6 months later and say, "Why did I buy this?" which is what I think of all Graham watches. But it is your wrist and eyes ...

    Grahams look good, but from what I've seen and read, they don't have the chops to back it up. Dive watch style and 30m water resistance, fashionably oversized cases (and I wear 44mm most of the time, so I'm not a small watch guy); they appear to be British versions of U Boats. Fashionable, sure. But better than your Chopard? I don't think so.

    I call those Grahams, the Bug-Eyed-Sprite. Keep the Chopard.

    I think Grahams are ridiculous looking and are basically fashion watches. They will be out of style in a few years, if not less. That Chopard is much, much nicer.
