Which Gloss paint for masonry sills?

The sills of our windows are sandstone. They have been rubbed down and SBR applied.
I want to apply a gloss finish, and used Dulux Trade Weathershield gloss on the window surrounds and fascias.

However I have just seen that there is a Dulux Trade Weathershield All Seasons Masonry Gloss available.

It is a fair bit more expensive, but can anyone tell me if it is worth the extra?

Why do you want a gloss finish on sandstone?

Oilbased eggshell is much subtler. Gloss should be restricted to wood in really good, smooth condition - anything else tends to look tacky.

Best o/b eggshell (and undercoat to go with it) is Little Greeene's Traditional Oil Eggshell, btw.
