    I have a real hankering for a Sinn 103, or a 756.

    Hopefully not too unobtainable sometime in the future!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,480 ✭✭✭ Lorddrakul


    I would very much like a Breitling B1

    b-1.face-front_small.jpg

    But also

    An Omega Moonwatch:

    TBH within my very meagre budget I've kinda covered the bases at the moment, though if more moola were in play, I'd love...

    Omega Marine Chronometer

    Omega-Marine-Chronometer-watch-7.jpg

    A Zenith Cairelli

    Zenith_A_Cairelli_Chronograph_AS01617_2_grande.jpg?v=1471967837

    Though I have a Heuer Bund so would be in two minds TBH.

    Longines Nonius Flyback

    Web_P1280243.jpg

    Longines Czech pilot

    And I had one, an early one too. Dumbest sale I ever made. :(:o

    Longines Chronometre

    Mad rare and IMH blows similar Pateks out of the water.

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.

    Mine keeps changing, but I think it's a Rolex Explorer II in black, a Tissot Squelette and a Tudor North Flag.

    1. Rolex Sea Dweller
    2. Glashutte Original Sixties
    3. AP Royal Oak
    4. JLC Navy Seal
    5. Any McGonigle watch!

    That is it. Not getting all Patek yet, maybe as I get older.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,171 ✭✭✭ Bluefoam


    IWC Big Pilot
    IWC Portugieser Chronograph
    Panerai Radiomir
    Zenith El Primero
    Moser & Cie

    I currently rock a Tag Heuer Monaco, IWC Aquatimer Chrono, G-Shock & a couple of Tissots... I don't want to be a collector, just someone with some nice watches that I enjoy... I have no interest in flipping watches.

    417295.jpg

    Looks like I need something with a bracelet strap in there too... will have to think about that one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,818 ✭✭✭ Bateman


    Next up a G Shock of some description, and a black Speedmaster


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,527 ✭✭✭ Ionised


    Always had a yearning for a Seiko Cocktail Time and have just been reading a Worn and Wound article on the new versions released under the Presage line.
    Noice!

    With the exception of the Bauhaus style watches, my tastes are all over the map. I've gone from Fliegers to Divers, to vintage Rolex.. even G shocks with the most garish of designs. Fortunately my (lack of) funding means I've plenty of time to dial into something more concrete.

    I constantly come back to the Zenith Big Date Pilot.
    5430_album.jpg

    Always dismissed Rolex. Memories of 80s Arseholes and old Fellas with Bi-metals poisoned my image of the brand. But I have to say their vintage stuff is lovely. There's a balance that has been lost with the newer larger designs, particularly the maxi case subs. I can even get past the cyclops now. I'd love a grey dialed date just.

    bs-w-213-rolex-1603-grey-dial-05.jpg

    Also, the Oytersquartz keep grabbing my attention...
    D20_2257.jpg

    Although If you put a gun to my head now it'd probably be a polar explorer 2.

    Picking up a 5610 G Shock has me looking at some stuff I'd always dismissed as gaudy and cartoonish. Keep staring at these..

    I've had a hankering for a few different watches, that then faded, but a constant one had been for the max bill chronoscope (and despite my also declaring elsewhere I wouldn't buy more mechanical watches!)

    11JUL10023.jpg

    Junghans new-ish Meister Pilot is probably my most up to date fancy...

    P1120882_zpsjaqqjd0s.jpg

    A Meistersinger would be the third on my list then. I'm not completely settled on exactly which model though, but it will inevitably be something like this

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,666 ✭✭✭ bogmanfan


    If I stick to the achievable, and skip MB&F, Urwerk and others that I'll never be able to afford, then these 3 are in my sights at the moment. All pretty high RRP, but the more interesting stuff always sinks like a stone, so all are possible at under €5k used.

    1. Corum ti-bridge

    I was looking forward to your choices!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,818 ✭✭✭ Bateman


    I have finally seen a Richard Mille that I like…although pictures is as close as I’ll ever get to it


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,539 ✭✭✭ Darwin


    While definitely not everyone's cup of tea, I would love one of the special edition BRM chronos, something like the Gulf T12:

    BRM-6-980x683.jpg

    Would settle for this Oris either:

    my last post was quite hasty. here's another few I'd like to add to the list:

    Mine changes from time to time, but if the right Longines ultra chron came along I might be persuaded, no, forced to turn a cow into big macs.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

    A bit of snow would be just about perfect, one can only dream.

    The updated dial doesn't work at all for me. So much better with the old branding.

    Have to agree I prefer the old design lay out.

    I tried on a DateJust II & Milgausse yesterday and a bit to my surprise, I think I'd have either one ahead of many sportier watches I thought I wanted.
