The Mazzuoli is based on the design of an old Alfa speedo, I seem to remember.
I saw a Chrono a few years back, in brushed steel with a carbon fiber dial, that looked amazing. I really like these and would go for as a vintage designed one as I could.
That said, not all watches should be collector pieces, some are meant to be worn and loved as an object. I'm wearing an Ernst Benz as I write this and while it has no real value in the collectors market and they sell them at John Varvatos and Barneys, I love the timepiece. That said, quartz, with the exception of a TX I travel with, is verboten.
