Default Compass: Ritchie Voyager F82w vs. Helmsman HF742w

I know this is in the electronics forum, but this is the electronic backup so I assume it fits.

Any one have any guidance between these two compasses? The Helmsman dial appears slightly bigger but they're otherwise the same? I'm looking for a fixed flush-mount compass on my Jones 20 Bateau skiff. I'm sure these are overkill for a boat this small but I like having a decent easy to read compass around.

The Helmsman appears to be a little bit more cost wise - is it worth the extra?
