I agree with Adam that the Seal is the signature watch by Kobold and I see his point about the Phantom. The SMG just speaks to me and of course there is the 3mm case diameter difference between the Phantom (41.3mm) and the SMG (44.35) The point is you really can't go wrong with KoboldThat's a tough one. From a practical standpoint it boils down to which complication one needs more in a watch - GMT or chrono. However, if this decision is to be based entirely on aesthetics, I'd choose the Phantom Tactical. While I feel that the SMG-1 is a beautiful watch in its own right, the Phantom has more of a signature Kobold look to it, second only to the SEAL, IMO (mind you, just what "signature Kobold look" means exactly, I couldn't say B-)).
Well the SEAL is a nice watch for some people, but not me. I owned one before trading it for the Phantom. I did not think it was comfortable to wear and the dial was too small.Lets argue. I believe the Seal is the ULTIMATE Kobold.:gold
