    I like the bottom one..mainly becos of the dial bevel. And no it has nothing to do with it having the SLR and Mercedes Benz emblem :P

    Can you post the photos of you wearing the watch?

    It is easier to judge that way.

    Not that we want you to reveal more of youself.

    i like both.. but the 2nd one is nicer in my opinion..

    my birthday is around the corner.. *cough cough* *cough cough*



    but watches eventually is subjective, must wear then can tell whether it suits a person or not, based on size, color, dressing style etc... in show case definitely looks nice.. but when put to use... must mix and match a bit..
    chezburgr i can haz?

    if i am not mistaken, then the caliber 16 movement is a ETA 7750 movement, which would be a classic mechanical chronograph, while the SLR will run on a caliber 17 which is using a new and more common ETA 2894 movement. Based on this i would choose the caliber 16.
    if i am not mistaken....

    The SLR looks good with leather strap, alternatively you might want to consider the Carrera also a caliber 16.

    what vid?! $12000, i'd rather use that money and invest in cam equipment or take a holiday or buy some art. Personally i think that people who use a time piece to show off their wealth are overcompensating. But that's just me.

    if cant decide then:-
    . flip a coin (heads- Caliber 16, tails-Mac-Merc),
    . buy both (wkday/wkend),
    . dun buy either?

    would any of our opinions may not carry any weight in ur final consideration? mayb should oso ask a few of ur gf.
