It will be Damasko chrono vs Sinn chrono (EZM13/103) when the time comes.
There was a guy here who really lurved his Damasko and wrote a fantastic piece about it at the time :thumbup:

Your one is nice! I've got the standard dial without the red date though.

Have had a small but totally unexpected windfall of a couple of hundred quid and am probably going to indulge my long-standing desire for a B-Uhr watch.

Front-runner at the moment, value for money being the biggest priority, is a Steinhart Nav B-Uhr Type B in 44mm size:

I realize it breaks my "no automatics" rule, but maybe I'll give them one last chance (Steinhart do handwound watches, but not of this particular model).
C8 Flyer 38mm (steel/tan leather strap)
C5 Malvern (gold/black leather strap)
C60 Trident 38mm (green bezel/NATO strap)
Steinhart Nav B-Uhr 44mm Type B (steel/black leather riveted strap)
Rotary pocket watch (gold plated, handwound)

For me, it's a strangely attractive watch and different to anything else in my collection. The fluted bezel and overall dressy feel are normally things I would avoid, but this is a stunner - especially the pie-pan dial and good mix of practical features (lume, good contrast, 100m WR).

As for the movement, I think Omega are advancing the technical aspects of movements faster than other mainstream makers - and that aspect is also appealing.
I'm loving this one Richard !
