797 vs 1351
Buying my first... I thought I had settled on the 1351, but now thinking 797 as well. I like the titanium cases and chocolate dial. Iíve always had all automatics, so other than the obvious winding difference, whatís the argument for going with the manual wind? Everything else I have also has a date on it, and starting to think the 797 has a cleaner, more classic look. I wonít wear it everyday, so the advantage of the 1351 is I can put it in a winder to keep it going vs remembering to wind the 797 when Iím not wearing it for an extended period.

Appreciate any thoughts.

My personal take on handwound movement is the thinner movement which usually translates to less floppy watch on the wrist

If I can choose,Iíd take a watch with longer PR but Iíd go with simpler dial (rear PR)

Sometimes the urge for something new is strong, but in this case, I would stay with the 1351 for the gold hands, the pop of which nicely breaks up the subdued Ti and chocolate dial. :thumbsup:

I donít like the power reserve on the dial on 797. So 1351 for the win.

+1. The PR arrow looks a little out of place.
