Need advice. My grandfather's birthday is coming.

Which is better? Traditionnelle rf. 43076/000P-9875 (platinum 950) or Patrimony Bi-Retrograde Day And Date 86020/000R-9940 (black dial)? 

 

I don't think you are looking at it in the right angle if I may say so

It is not a question of what is better as both are great watches but what you think your grandfather would prefer as one is a sleek timeonly in platinum with diamond markers (I find really cool) the other with day and date.

These watches are very very different aesthetically. The Traditionelle with white metal and diamond markers is a very "cool" watch, from a color standpoint.  It is a more traditional case, but with a "modern twist" in its coloring. The Patrimony is the opposite. It has a more "warm" palette with the rose gold and dark dial, but with a more modern case (and retrograde functions).  They are virtually opposites aesthetically. I would imagine that a look at his wardrobe would help with the decision. Would he prefer a "classically style modern piece" or a "modernly styled classic piece"?  As Alex said, they are both great and would make a fantastic gift.
