First Chanel: Need help deciding which boy bag to get!

Hi, I'm in the midst of buying a preloved medium Chanel Le Boy for myself. It'll be my first ever Chanel bag, my first ever designer bag in fact. I've narrowed it down to 2 bags - a discontinued black smooth calfskin:

and a red calfskin in the classic quilted design:

Any thoughts and advice on which would be the better purchase would be much appreciated please. I think both bags are beautiful and I need something that is more durable / doesn't need much babying because this is going to be a heavily used bag. And as I now work from home, I dress very casually and so would need a design that doesn't look too "special event-y".

Thanks!

The quilted red one! It’s beautiful!

+1 for the quilted red. The lack of design on the black is both not as eye catching (in my opinion) and more likely to show wear.

without quilt it looks a bit empty, i'd go for either color, but with chevron or quilt
