Hi all: I have owned both the headwind and SOHHiII in the past and really loved both. Sold them but now I’m back in the market for a dressy diver and am considering re buying one or the other. I have a reverse panda crosswind special on pilot bracelet that I love, and am concerned that the headwind is too similar because of the case and bracelet although the one I’m looking at is a silver dial. That said the CWS fits my wrist like a glove and the headwind is the same size. Further I love the day date complication and the 500m water resistance and the dial and it’s a good deal on the preowned market. On the other hand I love the mesh bracelet on the SOHii, the retro look, and the fact that it has a 70hr power reserve doesn’t hurt. Which of these would you add? Thanks.

I love the headwind but the ceramic bezel on the SOH really sells it for me. Which dial color would you be looking at?

Thanks Justin. Silver on the headwind or black or silver on the SOH.

Go with the SOH II, I was able to pick up one of the last silver with black dial bezel here in the states and it is absolutely amazing. I don't understand why they discontinued that dial!

Headwind.

I was very close to buying the Headwind several times, probably the toughest day-date watch out there. Classic look, bezel, and 500-meter water-resistant.
