Platona vs 2x WG Daytonas

For years I have coveted and dreamed about owning the Platona.

But in 2016, the WG Blue dial Daytona came out and it was absolutely stunning......that word is overused but it is.....same with the YG green dial Daytona.

And now, this new WG gray "panda" with a WG bracelet comes out.

Trying to choose between 1 PM watch vs 2-3 SS watches and I always go for the 1 PM.

But trying to decide between 1 PT watch vs 2 WG models....for almost the same amount....I can honestly say that which ever choice I made....I'd probably always be second guessing it as soon as someone posts the picture of the watch/watches I didn't choose!

First world problem, I know, but wow....WG daytonas seem to always have THE best dial options.

Jeff you seem to suffer from the same illness I have! Every time they come out with a new model, I like it better than the last! Good luck on your quest, I'm sure you will find something "stunning" lol.
