    What are some ultra high end sport chronos

    You probably know, I like brash chronographs. But I always wanted a superfine mechanical chronograph in my collection. Vacheron is a bit boring. Patek is way too boring. I like the Audemars Montoya and Barichello. Parmigiani is OK. I know about Roger Dubois. What are some other brands I should look at?

    A. Lange & Sohne Datograph. The greatest chronograph in serial production.

    I have this picture from WatchingHorology as my desktop wallpaper.

    I know of A. Lange & Sohne. Very fine indeed. But not brash enough. I am looking more in the sport watch category than dressy.

    Omega has a new in-house chrono movement in their Seamaster.
    The Rolex Daytona movement is very high quality also. Also the higher end Seiko
    chronos are excellent.

    Well then just get a Richard Mille Tourbillon Chronograph. It's brash, ultra high end, COMPLETELY ridiculous, and COMPLETELY awesome.

    As I said, I like the Montoya and Barrichello. That Barrichello is probably my #1 choice. The Montoya my #2. Interestingly enough, the Barrichello in titanium is the most difficult to come by and it is the least expensive of the three at a current retail of ~ $50,000. Definitely too much for me. I recently visited one of the largest dealers of grey market Audemars, and he has not been able to find a titanium Barrichello in two years, but routinely gets them in platinum and gold. He let me play with the platinum one. Forget about it.

    You are so right. One of my "brash" favorites. For me, a must have.

    Yea, love that one too. I just got one, did a thread on it: "Graham Chronofighter 40mm". I thought the 40mm was better than the 47mm since it is so eye popping.

    I guess I will stay focused on the Montoya and see if I can end up with one before the end of winter.
