    Shame the resurrector has missed the fact that the OP has zero willpower and could not stick to 3 watches if his life depended on it!!

    If the next three I want;

    Vacheron Overseas chrono (white dial)
    IWC Doppelchrono on bracelet
    JLC Reverso Calendar in rose gold

    The IWC is realistic within the year... I hope!

  7. #257
    -A Rolex
    -Patek 5196p
    -Another Rolex

  8. #258
    My current sirens calling are;
    Rolex explorer 1
    Jacques Etoile Atlantis
    Stowa Flieger B type dial.
    Now to pour the wax in my ears before I am bankcrupted

    Im happy with my 3 in front row though sometimes think about changing the LV for a SS Daytona.

    The back 3 not as much love nowadays!!


  10. #260
    Realistically.

    Rolex GMT Master II (coke bezel)
    Omega Seamaster 2531(my first luxury watch but had to let it go)
    Glycine Incursore.

    Unrealistically.

    Patek Phillipe Calatrava in white gold.
    Rolex Sub- white gold/blue dial
    Phillipe Dufour Simplicity.

    For me - diver / chrono / GMT - at least one has to be classic acrylic with matte dial. That takes me towards:

    Rolex 1680 Sub or 1665 SD - diver/classic/acrylic
    Planet Ocean GMT - black dial - a little on the thicker side, but one that would work well for travel or everyday
    My Fortis 644.27.11 Cosmonaut LE, with the Lemania 5100.

    If I flipped my Speedy Pro and SMP 2264, I'd be a good way towards the Sub, and may go that way next year. The GMT will probably have to wait a bit...

    Already contributed to a similar thread, but keep changing my mind in terms of priority (except for the Zenith):

    1) Zenith El Primero 'New Vintage 1969' Panda Dial (I have one in my sights)
    2) DN GMT (eagerly anticipated)
    3) Longines 13zn (the dream)

    Quite like thinking about this, as it focuses the mind!

    Newman Daytona that expensive?

    Been thinking about it again for ages, can't remember what I previously posted but I find 3 watches impossible to do.

    Can I list the three I'd like to sell?

    The three I currently own.

  20. #270
    My 2d worth (I wish !)

    Panerai Pam 111
    Rolex Date-Just 1980s with smooth bezel
    Heuer Chrono - 1970s model in PVD with orange hands (don't ask)

    The Heuer is an ongoing quest for a model I owned in 1979 and can't track down.
    Adds to the fun though, I suppose.

    I own several of my grails at the moment and they'd be my three;

    Blancpain Fifty Fathoms chronograph
    Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre chronograph
    Breguet 5707 Reveil du Tsar

    But how can anyone live without a Reverso, something vintage and something on a bracelet??

    5 is a minimum :)

    First world problems...

    A real 36mm Explorer instead of the £10 knock off I got from HK in 2006 (it's now losing about 5 mins a day and I had to superglue the 12 index back on)
    ND sub to replace the real one I sold in 2003
    A GMT Master II while I can still just about afford one

    Probably fairly safe but the following cover all the bases...

    Sea Dweller
    Reverso
    IWC Portuguese (371446)

    Think I've finally settled now with a trio of the Yachtmaster (as smart as I go), Pelagos (daily tool) and Emergency (multifunction Superquartz).

    This is all any sane WIS needs:


    Pity then, that there's no such thing as a sane WIS.

    Since several watches from my list have been acquired and two are in the pipeline, my wish list changes.
    It cúrrently is (in no specific order):

    - Cartier Santos quartz
    - Agat 194 Chs
    - Mare Nostrum homage build
    When the going gets tough, the DAF gets going.

    I'd go for:
    JLC Master Compressor (not the Navy Seal jobbie) or a Grand Reverso of some type
    Dornbluth 99.1
    Lange & Sohn - to be realistic, it would have to be pre owned ( which might still be unrealistic!)

    Keep it to watches that you not only aspire too but actually intend to own one day...

    (Edit: I could have included the JLC Master Calendar or even the PC 8 Days, but I did say three!)[/QUOTE]

    White gold Daytona on a leather strap

    Panerai Black seal 8 day.

    Mint 1960's Rolex GMT Master complete set.

    If we're being realistic:

    - Omega Seamaster Professional 2541: the cleanest and most rugged of the SMPs in the classic Bond style
    - Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 8500 Blue Dial: probably the most beautiful watch I have laid my eyes on
    - Rolex Submariner No-Date Ceramic: a long overdue modern update of a classic

    But we're being unrealistic I'd also love a totally gaudy yellow gold Rolex 36mm Day-Date on President bracelet and polished (not fluted) bezel. Horrible to most on here I'm sure but I'd love one.
