As you can probably tell from my recent posts and the watches I've had on sales corner, my SOTC is rapidly changing... I'm now in a position again to build my Swiss watches back up! 

I'm looking to add a chrono to the collection. Must have a 'Vintage' look... 

Therefor I've narrowed it down to these two

Longines Avignation Big eye

Tag heuer CV 2113 

Price, re sale value again is not an issue. Opinions based on aesthetics and specs please.

The Tag definitely wears better, and will certainly sit better under a long sleeve. Smaller diameter, slimmer case, better lug width. 

However having never pulled the trigger on a TAG I still have my reservations.

I am like that about Rado - some really nice watches, but hmmm....

Tag, on the other hand

p.s. don't leave the crown unscrewed whilst taking a shower, or you will get dark blotches on the lume :yes:

My personal choice would be a tag, I've have two and given one to my son for his 18th.  Got my 50th this year and looking for another one, black face this time, I feel they wear great and very robust, sapphire crystal and all. My sons is the graphite and mine silver face :thumbsup:

Agreed but in some instances not all Chavs.

Is it easier to see the time in real life? Dark hands on a dark background is hard on my `old' eyes. Otherwise it looks good.

Yes as the dial is more metallic grey then black due phone camera. The hands due a decent job being chrome and lume ends. All in all legible. I understand the difficulty part though, my eyes aren't that great either, thinking of going white face with dark hands possible explorer ii polar white  or maybe even another tag f1 caliber 6 small second hand.
