Longines. The AN is beautiful - thought you had one similar.
I do have a similar one with a cream colored dial.

While I would go for a Longines Master Collection instead of an Armand Nicolet, not sure if this one would be my choice. This one appears to have a modular cam-switching chrono based on the ETA 2895. Most of the current Master chronos already have the Longines-exclusive column wheel chrono movements, which I'd put way above the modular stuff or ordinary Valjoux - at least the chrono action is miles ahead of the cam-switching ETAs.
Though if the choice is definitely between these two, I'd still go with Longines.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.
