    Omega Dynamic Chrono or LE Targa Florio

    Ok everyone i'm reaching out with a REAL dilemma here.....

    I LOVE the Omega Dynamic Chronograph and i have to have one, seriously im just picturing it already.

    so the problem? Do i go regular version or Targa Florio LE from 99', probably not a unique dilemma to me. I've seen the regular version in person, and wish i could see both before buying but the Targa Florio is hard to find and i doubt i could see one without buying it.

    The Matte dial on the original is amazing, and the stylized almost Breguet style font of the numerals is a big huge plus for me and i hate that they are so plain on the LE. I also don't love that the LE has such bright lume on the hands and numerals it almost looks like its glowing.

    that being said the reverse panda dial matched with the red font on the LE is pretty amazing also....

    would love to hear the forums thoughts. photos from the inter

    thanks in advance!

    Although I’m usually a fan of panda dials, I think I prefer the original too. Considering you like the details on the original dial you may want to go that direction. The good news is you really can’t go wrong with either one. Good luck making your decision!

    That's true i do love those numerals and the matte black dial is just as cool as the panda..... im sure i would be happy either way but i'll continue to debate myself for awhile. O'm sure ill reach a decision eventually lol.

    Original looks hideous to me, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The limited is too plain, but if I had to pick I’d go for limited.

    I find that USUALLY, in watch world, the word "LIMITED EDITION" often means "We KNOW we can only sell few of these"

    I think I find the original - hate to say it - Timeless. Ha ha!!

    Although I DO prefer the non-chrono version of the Dynamic, but if I had to choose between the two, I say original will age far better down the line.

    Don't want to be too critical but I find these to be probably the most unattractive Omegas I've seen.
    To me they look cheap. Sorry.

    I had the non-chrono version. Much of the appeal was due to its quirkiness with the italic font and matching date wheel. I also love the yellow/black colour combo. That LE just doesn't have the same appeal. I also don't like how the sub-dials cut further into the numerals.
