I would agree with you on the chrono front. This one was the first in this line of Seamasters and in my mind the better looking one. The only thing i don't like about chronos is the extra cost of servicing them and the waterproof ability after a few years because of the pushers that need to be replaced. Since they are not screw down those pushers are more likely to leak than the crown. Those pushers are brand new so I should be good for a while.Beautiful watch! I'm usually not a fan of chronos, as they tend to look too busy for me. This one has a very clean look.
