    Which one would you keep?

    The assortment needs to be culled and the culling starts now.
    Which one would you keep and why? I already have made up my mind but maybe someone will change it

    Re: Which one would you keep?

    I like both and would be happy to own either in my collection, but only if they came without a date feature.

    There are features that I like from both but overall, I slightly favour the one with the big date complication, so it is the one on the right that I would keep.

    I prefer the one with the Arabic numerals.

    I'd keep the one with Arabic numerals. I think the stick markers are a little overwhelming on that watch.

    I prefer the version on the left. I find it easier to read and more eye-catching.

    I used to own the Pilot Big Date Special, and bought it instead of the previous pilot as to my eyes the big date provides balance to the dial, and takes attention away from how closely the chronograph registers sit to the center of the dial.

    The arabic numerals for me as well. Busy yet subtle (as insensible as that sounds). If the stick hour markers were in a watch without chrono sub dials I would then pick it. But I like the “empty space division” between hour markers and subdials in the arabic one.

    The watch on the right. It has numbers and I like the way the date looks.

    Re: Which one would you keep?

    If I had to choose for that style, I would go for arabic numbers and bigger diameter. However, those hands, date and telemeter are deal breakers for me.

    All the best with your choice.
