With that said, I love all forms of the Daytona. One of the greatest sport chronographs. When I put the black dialed version on my wrist, I certainly felt the draw. I can't help but feel it is a bit duplicative in my small collection though, with my Speedmaster and all. Not to say that they are even remotely similar. But at least in my small collection, two black dialed sports chronos may be a bit too much. Nonetheless, I would love to add a Daytona to the stable one day.

Hi Nuke, 

 

Yes, the only new polished surface with the introduction of the present 116520 were the lugs.

 

Obviously, we all have to decide in what direction we want to go with our collections.  What may be missing or a gap in one person's collection may be redundant or unnecessary in another.  IMHO, while they are both black dial chronographs, both are different enough (bezel, movement auto v. manual, subdial layout and colors, bracelet, water resistance, screw pushers v. plungers)  that I wouldn't see them as duplicative, but that doesn't mean its the right watch for you.  There are plenty of great watches and only so much $$$ and wrist time.  :cheers:

This probably belongs in the poor man's watch thread, but what do you guys think about the Tissot Heritage Visodate?

It retails for about £400, but I think I can get it for £300. Buy this one now and buy a Tudor black bay in a year and a half from now, or save up and buy a Tudor in a year from now? All I have at the moment is an omega seamaster.

Keep wearing the Omega and wait for the Tudor.

Agree. I went ahead and bought a watch that I really wanted rather than buy something less expensive as a stepping stone. Would have ended up getting what I really wanted in the end anyway. Happy to have just leapfrogged right to where I wanted to be.

Thanks for the comments guys. I really want the Tudor, love the colours and snow flake hands, but it's a very sporty watch. I thought a dress watch might come in handy, as I wear suits 4-5 out of 7 days. Anyways, I'll save up for the Tudor. If my bonus is good it might not even take that long.

I think the Omega would work nicely. I was going to buy a few other watches before the Speedmaster I want but I asked here too and realized that those buys will keep the Speedy fund short of it's target so I decided to wait.

Thinking of selling my Speedy to fund a 116200... crazy?

Not necessarily.  Both are really nice watches.  I think the 116200 is a bit more versatile, but if you like and using the chronograph function, well the 116200 isn't going to do the trick.   It just depends on what you want.

Opinions will vary here, but I think the Speedy is a better chrono.

I pretty much never use the chrono feature.

Just thinking of getting something new, and I am 100% a "one watch guy"... but I love the Speedy and feel like I would regret selling it at some point. Ugh.

A foreign concept

Basically, if I have a watch that I like I'm going to wear it almost all the time. Other watches probably won't get worn at all.
