Default Paper vs Snowflake

Paper or snowflake? What is your preference?

I've always loved grand seiko's snowflake dial (though I can't afford one), but recently upon looking at Citizen's chronomaster paper dial, I realized I like the paper dial more. Wondering how the community feels about both.



EDIT: I forgot to attach the pictures. Both grabbed from google.

Chronomaster is a very nice watch too, I‘ll still stick to the GS.

I'm on the fence. GS is GS, but something about that Chronomaster keeps bringing me back...

I think it is how the applied indices and logos seem to float above the dial of the Chronomaster that is what is so interesting about it.

Love the texture of the GS. Both very nice, though.

I prefer the dial of the Chronomaster compared to the GS but overall the GS would still be my watch of choice out of these two

I would have had the GS all day long if it wasn't for the Power Reserve.
Sorry

I never appreciated the GS Snow Flake dial until I saw them in the flesh and then I was a convert, class.

Like many it seems I am biased towards GS, but I still love the way the incredibly luminous paper dial makes the indices look like they are floating.
Both are fantastic looking watches, so tough choice but I still can’t turn my back on the GS.

I would have to get one of each and wear them for a year before I could decide
