Very enjoyable thread that is forever improving. Sorry to pester the discussion with my baubles. Enjoying the holidays, and finding proof, that what chicks dig, are Pateks!
I would suggest you end this line of inquiry, sir.
At 78 degrees north this week, Svalbard archipelago. Sporting, of course, the 'polar' Explorer II on a custom Nato in Norwegian colours. Effectively minus 50 deg Celcius the first day, thankfully only in the 20s after.
Love Speedmasters! For some reason, the only one who has found a way into my collection is a Mk II, the awkward 70s cousin in the Speedy family. Dated, but I quite like it. Hefty on a mesh.
Oh yes. The Nautilus is strangely flat on the wrist, like no other bracelet watch I've tried. The Daytona feels much more like a real sports watch. "Rugged", though? Nah I love them both, super watches!
In my eyes, this is the only way to go. A car is just tomorrow's nails and scrap. A PP is tomorrow's inheritance.I try to live a frugal life myself, I have a modest income and a simple lifestyle as a dad and geek. Less work, more free time. Fewer possessions, more experiences.

Not sure I'd like what I find I'm pretty sure I'm more moved by the need for peer recognition than I would like to admit. I have always tried to buy what I like, watches that make me smile. Be it ETAs in a pretty case or in-house movements with pedegree. The problem is that my preferences seem to be fickle and easily changed as I read and learn.
I will admit to a certain period of babying after getting a new watch After that, every watch gets used. It helps that I prefer to buy vintage or at least pre-owned, they usually come pre-scratched as well My Daytona and Master Chrono were both new puchases from my regular . The Daytona is now in regular rotation, never mind that the bezel is a scratch magnet. The rose gold MC is mostly used for dinners and occations, but the first hairlines and swirls have arrived. My...
Good reads on the last couple of pages! A touch of red today ... Old pic.
