for some reason i love the 6-9-12 on pilot watches. something about the layout that feels right.
I don't think I've ever seen a watch with it.Seiko NH88 or 8R49 which is a column wheel movement and which offers better value and better accuracy for money than your run of the mill 7750 let alone 7753.
Sigh. Guess this one goes on the potential wish-list now too.The Soldat Promessa Powers Vintage-Cool with Seiko's NE 88 Chronograph Caliber - Worn & Wound
Just found this: SOLDAT.
Has the NE88, and is reasonably priced. Very surprising!

I believe the 510 is a newer entry in the Sellita catalog. The bigger names are frequently slow to adopt new offerings, especially if adoption means changing dials or cases.If the problem's been solved, and yet, it is still (relatively ) rarely used, it makes the whole phenom even more perplexing.
Huh ??I never see anyone mention it, but I prefer the 6-9-12 purely from a functional standpoint. There's less of a chance when I want to time something that the hour or minute hand is obscuring the minute chronograph register. The hour hand doesn't reach to the top, and the minute hand only covers it for a few minutes at the top of every hour. It's for this reason that I can't stand the register layout on my seiko solar chrono, seems like whenever I want to time something the hands are in the way of the 60 minute counter at 6.
And Omega.Maybe it has already been mentioned, and please correct me if I'm off track, but isn't that role often filled by Zenith or Tudor/Breitling chronograph movements these days?
I think VK have been quite adequate in satisfying the "lust" to see the subdials at 9, 6, and 3.An unreadable chrono has no reason to exist. Looking at you, mecaquartz.
