    Omega De Ville (blue Orbis version) vs IWC Portofino Chrono (blue Laureas version)

    Both are blue watches for the charity. Which one would u choose? I'm more inclined to IWC for its more elegant/stylish design, and it also seems younger.

    I'm not familiar with both brands, can anyone help stating the pros and cons of both watches for reference? Thank u for your help.

    I'm going to go the other way and say De Ville for sure. The dial, especially in blue, fascinates me and I love the classic details. Also, the chrono dial and the day date on the IWC is far too busy for my taste - in a dress watch at least. And, for me, those are dress watches!

    After I get my "for sale" list emptied, I'm going to seriously consider a De Ville. Please tell me more about the charity aspect. :)

    Hard choice. The current De Ville is more unique with the co-axial movement. Are the case sides sapphire too?

    Obviously this is a subjective question but I am very partial to the Omega De Ville. It is a timeless design in my eyes and I prefer non-chrono's personally.

    Arghhhhhhhhhhh - I so don't want to go against the IWC as I am a big fan of the brand. That said the De Ville is a great looking Omega.

    De Ville - just!

    Love (and own) both brands. It would be a very difficult decison for me too. But I would say...well...if I must: De Ville.

    The Orbis, the boutique can't even stock them, a beautiful watch and I am not into dress watches but that is exceptional with the art deco cues
