    Tutima. I'm a sucker for PR. Big date is an additional plus.

    Between the two, I'll choose Tutima. The complications on the dial makes the watch stand out. Not sure I'll like the domed sapphire cristal though.

    Guys, thanks for your feedback, although seems like the preference is split between Ball and Tutima. Why is it so hard to choose? :(

    I have also been offered a pre-owned, but in excellent condition, Longines Master Collection (L26694786) for $1300:

    Well, Longines very well may be my favorite brand.....but out of the original 2 you mentioned it would be the Ball for me without a doubt.

    I prefer the look of the Ball out of those. Also not a fan of those big date modules that they stick on ETA's with the numerals on different levels.

    This may help on the Ball. It looks very nice on a honey colored strap:



    I will note what you have pictured is about a 3 year old model that was replaced in 2011 by the 60 Second II I have pictured. The case is a little smaller than the current (40mm not 41.5), but otherwise similar with just the date function. These may be older watches so you may have to factor in that they may be due for service.

    With the Longines in the mix, Longines all the way. Otherwise, the Ball. I don't care for big dates at all or PRs on automatics.

    Longines of those 3 :)

    P.S. Of course, if you can stomach the additional service cost for the movement. From what I've read, the chrono module is pretty much unserviceable on that movement and needs to be sent back to be replaced, right?
