Never gotten a good look at protons on the 675....but Watsens are probably the best looking flush mounts Ive ever seen. They're actually practical as well with a decent viewing angle.

I would also have to say that the Watsens are the best looking flush mounts I've ever seen. The Protons have a wider viewing angle, but the Watsens just look so clean. Mine that I just installed yesterday.

I'm able to argue with the cops better with the front mount visibility of protons as "flush mounts" are illegal. I tell them you have to be 6 inches in front of my bike not to see either from the front.

Never seen watsens in person, but, I doubt they are the same.

I did a comparo on both of these as I have owned both. Personally I prefer the Protons, they are considerably brighter, I'm not saying the Watsens are bad but the Protons are much brighter.

Yup, that's what they're there for!

They aren't hugely visible from the front, but I am thinking of whacking on some Ducati indicator mirrors at the same time.

Looks like your poll is leaning towards Watsen's. If you're ordering based on that, you better get to ordering the Watsen's!
