Given this new piece of information. Here's my updated picks.I have a good mix of dress and sports, but this one would be the first watch on a different level, thus the dilemma.
To your point, the red doesn't do it for me. In a strange way, your eye on the Moser shifts from the dial to the tourbillon more so than in any other watch because the Moser usually relies heavily on the stark, fume style or Vantablack, of the dial in non-tourbillon watches. The watch becomes the tourbillon. But the tourbillon is awesome and beautiful.Given this new piece of information. Here's my updated picks.
As for Moser, I tried the red/burgundy dial before felt it just looked very boring on the wrist and I'm someone who loves complications more than anything. Having said that it may be due to my personal preference for busier dials.

- Rolex (Previous #1)

Yet it's still "in the lead" at 32 votes vs 26 for the ALS.Rolex doesn’t belong here.

Yep, this poll says a lot. Wrote my response before voting I was very surprised by it. No wonder Rolex is at its current position.Yet it's still "in the lead" at 32 votes vs 26 for the ALS.
BTW, if this ever materializes for me, I'm not basing my decision on this poll. I will look at which one is a relative deal and, as people have mentioned, how these would fit in my collection. But it is interesting to see how this sort of develops.
At least at this time, the poll is proving the pull of Rolex...whether because of design, name recognition, materials, what have you. Rolex is in many ways showing that it is the brand "to beat."
