Great picture - in fact, post moar! I had wondered if it was a GL1, given that the earlier generation of the GL1 had overlapping subdials and yours clearly does not.
Beautiful. Is that the Lange 1 or Grande Lange 1?
Second what Dopey and Stitchy have said. As far as sports chronographs go, the Navitimer is one of the modern classics...
Might be easier to view if you used the "Upload image" function...
@aleksandr: Yes; I did in fact mean not buying any watches at long (5 year intervals). i'm admittedly not as affluent as some of the other collectors here, so I have to balance my watch purchases against other "non-essentials" (eg bespoke clothes, shoes), investments and family (ie children). After I picked up my Royal Oak, I waited about 5 years before I got my Reverso Duo. Currently putting away funds for something like a Lange. I don't have enough disposable income to...
@aleksandr: I would add a moon phase/complete calendar, an ultra-thin, and a rectangular or tonneau-shaped watch (eg Reverso, Cartier Tank or Vacheron tonneau). Possibly also a true sports chrono (JLC Deep Sea, Daytona, new AP ROO 42mm). Patience is a virtue. Rather than buying random things that you like, I would hold out for that Patek annual calendar if that's one of your grails. I've waited 5-10 years between major watch purchases...And still prefer to wait rather...
Go with your heart. Everything you've said implies that you prefer the WG. I suspect (despite the extra cost) you will regret it if you buy the steel.

That is pretty reasonable for a Big Three chronograph service. As of 2-3 years ago, it cost around CHF 800-900 to service an AP minor complication (like my RO Dualtime), so around AUD 1000.
Thanks Moo. It's a really easy watch to love and a great watch to wear. I don't think I took it off my wrist for the first 6 months I owned it! Edit. Ok may be I did take it off to sleep and shower, but you know what I mean!
