    I need suggestions/alternatives

    Hi guys

    I need help finding a chronograph on leather. Sizewise we are talking 41-42 mm.

    To show you the type of watch I'm looking for here are some examples. My price range is max 10.000 euros.

    I hope you can give me some alternatives so that I can buy the right watch.

    Thank you

    It's 43mm but I don't think that would make it too big.

    I don't think I can offer a better alternative to the two watches you picked.

    Edit : I could only think of this as an alternative.

    I'll ask the obvious question: Why not a Speedmaster? Classic design, impeccable heritage, well known and well regarded, and well under your price target.

    I second this suggestion. If you are looking for the pinnacle* of a chronograph movement, look no further than an el primero striking 10th. Simply amazing.

    *I use this verbiage relative to the price point, and I acknowledge that the truest of true in this regard is certainly the Datograph.
