Hi Everyone,
I am planning to buy my first Chrono and based on my research and budget available, have zeroed in on the following two models:
Seiko SNAE35P1 & Citizen CA0191-02H. Looks-wise i am quite attracted to both the models and hence would want to make my decision based on expert recommendations based on features, durability, personal experiences etc.

I am also posting their respective snaps. Please advise.

Regards,
Abhi

+1 for Citizen's Eco-Drive (powered by light).

Titanium eco-drive vs steel standard quartz? No question, Citizen.

Note that the titanium case is a bit softer, so it will tend to mark up a bit more... but it's a much lighter material, and warm to the touch (stainless can be pretty cold).

Thanks Andrew, will keep that mind while making my decision.

+1 Seiko because diameter is more manageable and comfortable - at least for me. I like its appearance more too.

Its 3:2 in favor of Citizen as of now, discounting the last msg which I could not decipher. Lets see where it leads to. Need to make a decision in 3-4 days.
