if you dont want to go for the IWC, put me in the tank solo category. smile.gif

I must admit the tank solo sits well on the wrist--better than the reverso IMHO, but i'm partial to the reverso because of l'histoire

Long desired, recently acquired. I'm thinking of swapping the band for a brown one since it's too big anyway, and the brown may look nicer with the blue dial.

Going to pick up the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch.

 

Why?

 

Getting a sweet deal, that's why.

 

Not too keen on the manual movement, but I need a daily watch.  (Yes, I wear clunky watches for daily wear.)

What's wrong with a manual wind movement? Having only autos would be boring IMO.

Struggling to even narrow down to style of watch

Very nice. Looks bigger than I pictured. I would be interested to see what a mid brown strap looks like as well.

You are IM of PP perpetuals!  The temptation to address you as "Imelda" from now on, is almost irresistible!

Funny, I was looking at Nomos after a mention on here a couple of weeks ago, and picked out that exact model and colour as my object of desire.  Congratulations and enjoy - I'm quite envious!  But I'd leave the black cordovan strap; it looks awesome.

Unless something strikes you more when shopping ... I'd go with the Tank.  I've always been smitten with them when I see them in the flesh.  There's just something about classic about them.

And yeah, the Reverso thought has definitely crossed my mind. Maybe the new ultra thin... Mmmmmm. A lot to think about for sure.
 

Much like Cylon said, I really like the Reverso because of its history.  Most models don't sit on my wrist as well as a Tank, but its just such a special watch that I have to have one someday.  

 

The Tank Solo, is a great option.  It will fit well within your parents' budget, its an iconic design, yet its very understated and can easily be worn for any occasion.  I picked up a Tank in 2008 and its one of my favorite watches.  It looks great with a suit, and it still works well with a sweater and jeans. In addition, if most of your watches are or have been round, its a nice change of pace to have something rectangular.  I may be a bit biased wink.gif 

 

Not the exact model, but some Tank P0rn for you to ponder.
