Hi All,

I rarely post on forums but would really like to reach out for opinions. I'm currently deciding on two Chronographs to add to the collection. I understand that both of these watches may be in a slightly different price range and I do understand they are a different standpoint in terms of branding. But I wanted to see on your opinion purely based on which one is more ascetically pleasing to the eye.
In my opinion both watches will hold value quite well in the long term.

Omega Apollo 15 35th
Vacheron Overseas 49140

Within reason, I do not care about retained value, so let’s get that on the table from the start. It will not factor into my thinking at all.

From a pure aesthetic perspective I would not buy either. I dislike two-tone watches, so that rules out your Speedmaster choice, and I do not like screw-down pushers, so that rules out your overseas choice. That said, I will make the following comments that might help you choose:

* Horologically the VC the better watch.
* The VC's integrated design means that you will find it harder to change the look with straps, so what you see now it largely what you will see into the future. On the other hand, Speedmasters are generally strap monsters, so the look can be changed very easily, albeit that may not be the case as much with the two-tone.
* While I quite like Arabic hour markers, there is something not quite right to me eye with those on the VC. The Omega’s dial is simpler and cleaner in this comparison.
