Mido Ocean Star Tribute.

OP, absolutely no contest. GS has awful dial and clumsy PR dial.

If I had to choose between the two Iโ€™d get the SSC911. That is only because I had the SSC813 and sold it.

Even though I have a puny wrist I found the 813 too small especially the lower sub dial with the unnecessary F/E gauge. That wasnโ€™t the reason I let it go though. For a panda I disliked the purple hue of the sub dials (even though I like that it was solar). I also disliked the useless 24hr sub dial and the (IMHU) dreadful date window. I tried it on a strap which to me improved the watch as the end link integration onto the case of the bracelet was poor.

As I said I ended up selling it and replacing it with a Certina DS-2 presidrive. Clearly not a panda but IMHO a better watch in every aspect apart from not being solar.

I had a sector pilot which I only sold to part fund another watch. The blue dial sector deep is without doubt a watch Iโ€™m likely to buy next year.

Or perhaps a Sector deep.

The blue dial with red accents without the bund looks great and certainly changes the look of the 417 considerably.

You can get the strap part of the bund strap from Hanhart at a reasonable price.

Thatโ€™s a bloody super looking Hanhart. My pioneer 417 is a favourite of mine I particularly like the bund strap as I think it suits the vibe of the non panda version. I have the brown and the black bund which I swap out to change the look of the watches.
