Nick can I ask why you can't decide between the two ? We all prefer the 500912 . But at the end of the day it will be your watch (although I do wish it was mine :D )
Sorry, Bern, missed this.

I ain't gonna lie, the 4 grand price difference is a huge pull to the 401!! :lol:

I quite like the finer font on the 401, but would miss the 9.

I have never faffed about with a watch choice so much in my life.

A friend of mine also likes the finer font .

If they were around the same price , which version would you prefer Nick ?

I've recently settled that my ideal watch collection would sit with: Tudor BB Bronze (sentimental watch), C60 300 White 38mm and a Marathon Medium TSAR as my beater work watch. I like the convenience of Quartz i think. So things i'll have to offload are My Seiko SNZH FFF mod auto, and my GShock.

After realising my potential watch budget doesn't quite stretch to a new Nomos Club my fickle mind has wondered to this with a £100 off at Jura

So got chatting to a customer this morning. He noticed my Speedmaster so the conversation turned to watches. He let me try on his Seamaster Chronograph. And now I want a Seamaster Chronograph! :oops:

Keep dreaming about building my own brand.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

I'm dreaming about a Brightz. I can't justify a Grand Seiko at the moment and my Presage didn't quite scratch the itch

As I struggle to find a vintage datejust that I'm happy with, my thoughts are centring on explorers (14270) and the modern 36mm oyster perpetuals...

watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment

I know they are just a 7750 in an expensive case but I do love mine and still think I could come out flat if I wanted to sell it
