    GS wears nicer and looks fantastic. Get that one.

    Both are great watches. From what I hear, the GS is black most of the time, though, and only shines blue under specific lighting circumstances. So, if you want an overtly blue dial, go for the AT. Other than that, the AT tends toward the "sporty" end of the sporty<----->dressy spectrum, while the GS tends toward the "dressy" end.

    That’s a tough choice because most people would be happy with either option in their collection.

    For me the AT has always been a classic sports dress watch and was a close second preference to the AT I have in my current collection. The case size is also slightly smaller than the GS so if you have a smaller wrist this could be a factor.

    While I admire GS and learning more about it a little bit of me is hesitant to pull the trigger particularly if it was my first big purchase in the luxury watch world.

    I've got both a GS and an Aqua Terra (grey dial for me). Very tough call as I love both of them. I'll say the GS feels more special--and, if I could only keep one, it'd be the GS.

    So GS for me.

    Also, I've had excellent service with my GS, and with GS in general.

    But can't miss. Still, if I were buying an AT today, I'd go for the new 8900 models.

    The Skyfall 38mm is the nicest of the entire aqua terra lineup IMO.

    Owned it and regret selling it. Honestly, I've been thinking about getting one again before they become hard to come by.

    Skyfall 38mm. That dial is amazing and the size is right on most wrists.

    I've owned both the GS Snowflake and the AT8900 in blue.

    Both are excellent. Personally, if you don't want attention, get the GS. If you have the AT, people tend to look at your wrist more.

    I ended up selling the GS and AT because they are a bit too big for my 6.5" wrist.

    Out of the 2, i find the AT is a true GADA watch.

    AT looks a bit sportier. The GS a but dressier and slightly more versatile looks wise in my opinion. It would probably be easier to sell the AT if needed down the line based on brand popularity.

    If it's your main or only watch, I recommend the AT. If you already have sportier pieces, the GS is a more viable choice.
    I think Westcoastco really hit all the main points. He's right on 100% of what he said. My only addition is that the spring drive movement is special --- arguably the biggest innovation in watch movements in the past 20 (100?) years. I own a different GS spring drive and never tire of contemplating the ABSOLUTELY smooth sweep of the second hand. Mine runs at about +0.1spd, which is nice too.

    Re lume, I will add that I've been amazed at how well the impeccably polished hands of the GS catch light. It ends up being legible in very low light as a result.

    But two solid pieces, so you can't make a bad decision.....
