Zenith El Primero - Skeleton Dial or Regular?

Guys, Iíve been in love with the Zenith El Primero for the longest time and I just offloaded my Omega Speedmaster and have decided to pull the trigger once and for all on the iconic El Primero. Iím just undecided between the blue dial with open/skeleton dial or the standard blue dial Chrono. What do you guys think?

One thing to note is the lack of date in the open heart. I really prefer the open heart look and design, but a date is a must for me.

Open because it is eye candy. And you will catch the eye of the ladies with the openwork. Don't worry, I won't tell your wife.

Depending on color and design, I prefer open or not.

In this case, blue dial is absolutely gorgeous in classic design (non open).

Next are my open zeniths

I am a fan of the standard between these two. I like open faces but just not with this reference.

Same. Not a fan of the asymmetric open heart designs. And I would like a date function.
