Can I ask for your opinion about these two GP Laureatos?

It's decided :the Laureato will be my next watch !

I am simply convinced by the beauty of the watch and it's extreme fine execution.

Now I am torn between these two models : the three-hand with blue dial and the chronograph with black dial and blue sub-totals, both in 42 mm.
I saw both yesterday at my AD and left completey undecided.

Here some of my observations:
- look : maybe a slight advantage to the chronograph
- wearing comfort : similar, the chronograph being surprisingly thin
- movement : maybe an advantage for the 3 hand watch with finally a movement from GP that correctly fills the case

I know that there are quite a few more knowledgeable people than me about this brand on the forum and therefore it would be helpful to get your views and comments.
Am I missing something important?

Which watch would you choose and why?

Thanks,
Gerard

Probably also a bit more elegant with it's thinner case profile..

Yes, also. [nt]

i like both but agree with previous comment on the time only being more classic

Cant go wrong with both of them imho .

Just go with the one ticks the most boxes for you . I think i would go also for the time only because of its ,,classic,, look .

Both very nice but

chronograph , dial with beautiful color contrast bits...

I too vote for time only...

Two things I don't care for on the chrono: 2-tone dial (black and blue are looking strange to me) and the date at 4:30. YMMV

The colour scheme of the chrono is actually quite nice.

You definitely have a point with the date placement.

Another vote for the time-only ...

I have been tempted by the exact same model for a couple of months now, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Some of the earlier versions of the time-only are also very nice. ...
