    Which on to choose -- new vs old Original Pointer Date?

    The new original pointer date version is on sale but the old version can also on sale and is around USD100 cheaper.

    Is the new version worth to pay more?

    I doubt the 100 usd difference is justified. Plus aesthetically the difference is negligible. Just my opinion...

    I like the 2nd one way better. The fonts of the hour and date are different and the size difference are greater...overall much better legibility and visual appeal. IMHO

    I didn't know the pointer date with cathedral hands was back... have loved that watch..I would pick the newer one based on cleaner aesthetic of the new dial...however if the new case is too big, then I would pick the older with the smaller case.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either one. It all comes down to your personal preference. Purist design vs post-modern design. They are the same size (40mm), but the new model uses the different case (less curved lugs than the older model) and has the different crown and less refined bezel.

    As you know I went with the older model because it reminds me of the original design although the new model is growing on me.

    The dial of the old original with it's index is better than the new ( the difference sees itself with the "4"), so if in more you can save money ;)
