The King is DEAD...long live the KING 🤴 😉

Ever heard the expression OLD Cow - NEW Cow ?

In this instance, I think it applies well 🤣

Always considered the Double Split the original King of Chronographs but in my honest opinion the new MB&F Sequential Evo has dethroned the King.

2 different types of Chronographs and watches in general which can still exist in any chronograph fan's collection 😉👌

Not the greatest photo so I will take a few in natural light tomorrow 🤪

I’m this case I absolutely agree..

The MB&F is more impressive technically but the DS is more impressive visually on the back but not the front. Both great chronographs to have my friend.

Both brilliant,

but I am easily partial to the MB&F. It's mind-boggling without a doubt! Thanks for the pics!! Cheers, Filip

The DS is, inho, still the King.

The DS can do more with one movement than the MB&F can do with two. If you press the ten o'clock button twice, it will record and display the best lap or worst lap, with the hands either moving forwards or backwards! The MB&F is visually striking and "eas...

I see your point my friend but trust me when I say the Sequential Evo is superior in terms of being a pure chronograph...

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : November 9th, 2022-22:53
The Double Split is more complex BUT the Sequential Evo CAN do what the Double Split does and also much more in a more practical and simpler way. I agree with you about the Double Split being a ground breaking reference, which it still is, but looking at ... 

+1...or the Triple Split

I don’t know about this 10:00

Pusher feature. Need to learn more!

The double 10 function is not so well known.

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : November 10th, 2022-19:23
As mentioned: if the best lap time is shorter, both hands (minutes and seconds) move backwards!

I am in total agreemen with the Count

While an interesting juxtaposition...

Let's go a step deeper... The king chrono should also be fit for a King. A great king doesn't need to be verbose, but true power is best displayed doing less, with an elegant boldness.

Two very nice pieces

 
 By: penfriend : November 9th, 2022-21:31
I favor the DS of those two due to its timeless design. But are they the Kings of chronographs? To me, this leaves out of debate the Minerva MB hand wound chronographs. A king must not necessarily be the most complicated object, its also about doubtless h... 

We all have our own opinions my friend...

But as a fan of Chronographs with triple digit Chronographs in my collection ranging from vintage to modern, monopushers to double Rattrapantes, Foudroyantes, manual winds, automatics, several from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000... 

I was kidding... ;)

I'm with you, imho this is the new king of chronos

 
 By: Fastwong : November 10th, 2022-00:49
There are many beautiful chronos, many well finished chronos, many historically significant chronos, and many novel and complex chronos. I think there are truly few innovative and game changing chronos. Congrats on this pairing! In the same way the double... 

No offense taken at all

 
 By: penfriend : November 10th, 2022-07:28
And with only one chrono in the mid triple-digits I would not dare to challenge your collectors experience ;-) My point was that the interpretation of a King can vary and I don't share your criteria which are purely technical / innovation based in my unde... 

I understood your point of view my friend. I wasn't giving you a monetary value of my chronographs, I was trying to say I literally have + 100 (3 digits) chronographs in my collection, hence why I can give an unique point of view on this Sequential Evo..

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : November 12th, 2022-23:17
And how truly INNOVATIVE it is in terms of beig able to do things no other chronograph can do. It is a GAME CHANGER in this category and I cannot stress that enough 😉

What about a the Triple split?

Thank you for your report, extremely detailed.

I hear you bro 😉

Spectacular pair!

 
 By: KCLQMULKU : November 9th, 2022-22:29
I would say the King and the Emperor! 😆

Incredible pair!!!

 
 By: jleno : November 10th, 2022-01:59
Have you thought of adding a DB maxichrono?

Congrats and amazing pairing. This will

Require a very large wrist band if you go out in public! I love the look of the mb&f. It is amazeballs! I will have to do more research on both to give my final verdict but from pure aesthetics I like the mb&f more because if it’s fresh look.
