Two very good points. I really do think the non-chronograph Seamaster "speaks to me", so it will probably be the one I initially go after. I like your suggestion of the Tag Monaco too, for its vintage looks, and it's also kind of cool that Steve McQueen wore one. I'm now thinking of the small collection I'd like to build, which would probably consist of:
Tag Heuer Monaco
Omega Speedmaster Professional or Tag Heuer Carrera
It will take some time and money to build such a collection, but that's part of the fun.
