Having let my GEN2 away last summer in which to facilitate a grail I tried this one on yesterday thinking 41 would just be perfect but....

Imho the silver dial is the weakest of the current collection.

I didn't buy an overseas until they've releases the threehander with the black dial. I also prefer it over the watches of the Gen before.

Then I‘ll have to pass over Vacheron Constantin... :(

I like the watch more than any other sports watch but this is a chunky piece of fine shit in my eyes. 222 reissue in Historiques line-up... how does that sound?

The new Overseas line is growing on me.........

But it's hard to get a better dial layout than what the 2nd gen chronograph has. Its liked VC flipped the issue that the 2nd gen three hander had with the awkward date position and moved it to the 3rd gen chronograph. They also eliminated the guilloche da...

I very much prefer the Gen 3 chrono over the Gen 2. The 2 is bit chunky and looks heavy compared to the 3 If you’re a fan of big date than the 3 won’t help you but personally I’m not a fan of big dates. I have the Gen 3 chrono with blue dial. Absolutely p... 

The 3rd Gen chrono is a full 1 mm plus thicker than the 2nd Gen chrono........

13.7mm vs 12.4mm. I owned the 2nd gen chrono and have tried a silver dial 3 Gen Chronograph on, the difference in thickness between the two is noticable. The in-house movement made the 3rd gen chunkier. Now I do like the 3rd generation three hander better... 

That blue dial gen2 is really great.

My only issue with it is the poor water resistance, which is contrary to the concept of a sport chrono with screw down pushers. Case back should have been screw down.
