Help needed! Choice for JLC watches.

Need help for me to pick between those two here.
1. JLC Master Ultra thin perpetual in pink gold.
2. JLC Mater Geographic in pink gold.
The pics of them are here.
I love them both and I have several Rolex professional watches and AP ROs. Just want to have something nice with a leather strap.
Also, do you think Breguet is a brand more reputable than JLC?
Any opinion would be appreciated.
You can also give me an opinion for a better watch you think.
Thank you so much guys

For a dress watch I always prefer thin watch so I think ultra thin will be better. That’s just my taste :D

Ultra thin is sweet, but the geographic is my favorite.

I prefer the aesthetics of the Geographic in this case. For some reason the year indicator on the perpetual has always bugged me, likely because it throws off otherwise perfect symmetry.

Both are very good examples of their kind, so it's more a question of which complication appeals to you more.

In my opinion, Breguet is seen as slightly more luxurious or exclusive, but JLC would command just as much, if not more respect from watch enthusiasts.

Is there anything you could recommend from Breguet in this price range? Thanks

I prefer the Perpetual. The proportions and thinner case of the MUT series is just perfect. I was never a fan of the pusher at 10 o'clock on the geographic.

The geographic is a little more casual, sporty and more of a daily wearer than the perpetual. If you like them both, given the fact that you have mostly Rolex professionals and APs, I would opt for the perpetual.

I prefer the lower one because I like moon phase AND the upper one is too busy IMO.

Yes. I love the most part and thinner looking of the perpetual, but just not a big fan of year display. Looks like an add-on option to me.

The perpetual by a hair, but I really love both. Speaking in generalities, I much prefer JLC to most brands it is in direct completion with, including Breguet. Have a simple Reverso myself.

While I like the JLC perpetual calendar and moonphases in general, I'm not a fan of how they've implemented the year, as it ruins the symmetry in my eyes. Therefore, between your two choices, I'd probably opt for the Master Geographic. Still, my favorite non-Reverso JLC is the Master Calendar in rose gold, which is one of the most beautiful moonphase calendars ever made, in my opinion. It also feels a lot more substantial on the wrist than the Ultra Thins.
