Though, have you considered a Zenith El Primero?

Awesome! The original dial Snowflake, a tritium Speedmaster, and the 1016. What an amazing trio!

I would vote for the Speedmaster.

Cause once you’ll get used to the lightness, details and precision of the Snowflake you won’t wear the Explorer anymore

Speedmaster. If you can have all three, then all the better. But Expolrer belongs with Speedmaster...

The Speedmaster is the most important chronograph in history. I would have no doubt

Really tough decision. One problem with an Explorer is it's so versatile that it covers all the bases on it's own, so finding a companion could be tricky. I love the moon watch but it looks pretty similar. Perhaps something on leather like the Grand Seiko SBGJ217 GMT. Now that covers some bases not covered by the Explorer.

Thanks! It's a Barton Silicone Elite and it's a great companion with the Speedy as it is running watch. It's an excellent value and extremely comfortable.

You may wear Speedy more, but sbga211 is way more special. Tough call, but I’d go snowflake.

Not sure why people are saying the speedy and explorer are similar. They are very different watches.
