Hi everyone,

Need your help on deciding. I'm trying to look for a casual watch for daily wear. I've narrowed down to a new Tudor heritage chronograph grey dial or IWC aquatimer 3719 pre-owned with titanium bracelet.
Any opinions or anyone own these that can comment on? Below are not my pictures but borrowed off the net.

I like the IWC better personally. I always loved the look of that Tudor in pictures but it left me very very unimpressed in person. The dial is literally very flat because the subdials and everything are printed on. There is no change in depth and it just made it look cheap to me in person.

I prefer the IWC for the reasons stated above and because it has more of a tool watch look which I tend to favour.

I agree with Nate on this. I really like the heritage chrono but besides having the flat dial, there is also a lot of open space.

It pains me to say this because of my previously burnt fingers with IWC, and I also happen to love what Tudor are doing.....BUT I agree with everything said above.

The grey and black dial Heritage models do have a little more depth than the blue version (which is totally flat), but they are still a bit too "featureless" and there is a lot of empty real estate on the dial, especially the lower half. I always thought it could do with a cyclops over the date like the original.
