The improvements featured in the latest calibre do not make up for the aesthetic advantage of the 3810TI imho...

... so I would go for the watch that appeals to you more. I can also imagine that the movement improvements are going to be available to the older version during an upcoming service. Breguet‘s sister company Blancpain does exactly that since a while. For ... 

Go with whichever you like best on your wrist.

You won't be contemplating movement differences while wearing'll be looking at the aesthetics. So in this case, definitely get the Ti version. Cheers, John

... and traded in for a Ti. You'll love the Ti. It looks like a bulky heavy chronograph but the wearer can't believe how light it is! Also, ... it's a better looking dial.

Had the Titanium Version, but Sold it due to quality issues

The Central minute hand of the Chronograph didn't reset properly. After some uses it didn't Set Back to the 12 o'clock position anymore, but was about 1/2 minute Off. Send it in 2 Times for the same reason then Sold it when it happened a third time.

I have tried both on my wrist, the titanium and the steel version. I personally liked the ti version much more. With regard to the aesthetics and to the comfort on my wrist. Best, Thomas

Which one is the titanium version?

Black or brown dial? I'm personally on the hunt for a Type XX no date. Found some options on Chrono24 but just havent made a move yet.

The black one is the Titanium.

I have the titanium version and it is a beauty. It has moved to being a very consistent wear across my collection and dare I say it, beats my PAM576 (and I never thought I would say that) Choose what sings to you. Regards, Patrick
