    Chronograph choices

    I have just been reviewing my Pintrest boards and realized that I have now pinned 6 chronographs to the board for my next big birthday purchase. I thought I was heading towards a dressy 3 hander but there must be a reason I keep pinning chronoghrphs. Anyway here is the current top 6, in no particular order - photos all from Mr Internet - thanks.

    Opinions, personal bias and alternatives I am missing all welcomed!

    Of those - I'd go with the 'bull-head'
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Tough one....each is beautiful in its own way. Caution with the Montblanc though. It is stunning looking piece, with great finishing. My only problem, I don't have perfect eyesight, so reading the time and chrono dials wasn't as easy as I hoped. The problem lies with me, not the watch.

    The Bremont or the Montblanc for sure. The Habring, perhaps. The rest I would not even wear if given to me for free
    My suggestion for a chrono would be a Senator sixties chrono, but from your pre-selection, I think you go for more sporty...


    So something more sporty, then why not the mother of all sports chrono's?

    If I was to choose a GO I don't think it would be the panograph..

    I did see the Montblanc in person and was not a fan before I tried it on. Pretty much any chronograph has me reaching for my reading glasses.

    The chronos you've already chosen are all quite respectable, but I would suggest only two more:

    Vacheron Constantin Overseas
