First world problems...
Iíve been looking for the ďrightĒ chronograph for a little while now. Iíve tried some that I liked and ultimately keep coming back to the same two choices. I canít really explain why Iím stuck on Omega - but I am. These check every box but they are wildly different looking watches. Iíve tried both on. I even owned the orange handed Speedy racing but ultimately decided that I didnít like the black as much as Iíd like a panda, white or something else a little more fun.
I like both and have concerns about both. Maybe I might even own both someday if the right used deal came along. But right now - I can only get one.
Iím assuming others have had the same problem at one point. Love to hear how you reasoned out which one to choose.
Speedmaster Racing Master Chronograph 44.25
Pros: love everything about this- the size, the dial, itís like a sports car
Cons: am I a white watch guy? Is it ďtool-yĒ enough?
Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph 45.5
Pros: love the dial. My favorite dial out there. The hands, the balance, the color. Love that it wears smaller than it looks
Cons: the ......... impression it might get with this 19mm hamburger on my wrist or barely fitting under the cuff of my casual print oxford and sweater at any given day of work. I will never ďdiveĒ with this but I guess I might snorkel sometime on a cruise or something. Lol.
Would love to hear some thoughts. If not too off-topic, Iím open to alternatives too. Prerequisites are chronograph and 43-45mm dial. 42 is smaller than Iíd like which kind of rules out the regular Speedy. If it helps, my daily driver has been a combo of Breitling SuperOcean II 44 and Sinn 857S UTC.
