I don't think it's considered a women's model, but at 40mm I think it's a great size.

Ideally, what I would love to find is one in that size, with this exact design, blue hands and all:

I think that if I had the phone number of Heidi Klum I would not share it. :lol: 

 

Hahaha just kidding. The watch model, I don't know.

How much does a beauty like that would cost?

A quick search.

Also, just found this:



Sold at auction in 2007 for around $200K.

Apparently only six exist. Where I found it, someone expressed concerns that it might be fake. If so, quit a successful scam, considering the auction price.

Hello everyone.
 
I have been lurking for quite a while and enjoying this thread immensely, so I figured it was time to contribute.  This is my collection thus far.
 

 

 

 

 
I will be receiving a promotion at work this September, which is somewhat of a landmark event.  So I would like to commemorate with a new watch in pink/rose gold.  I want this to be a ‘special’, long-term watch.  I have developed a list of possibilities and would like feedback. 
 
I realize the decision is largely based on my own personal opinions and my experience with the watches when I try them on, but I would appreciate any insights that may help with my decision.  Budget is $30K max unless the market nosedives, and I am only interested in new at this time (I suppose I could be persuaded to look at used, but it would take some persuading). 
 
I am also open to suggestions other than what are listed below.  Wrist size in 7 1/4”.
 
Glashutte Original PanoMaticLunar (Retail $22,800)  This is the current front-runner.  I tried it on with the Louisiana alligator nubuck leather strap, which was SWEET.  It is a bit thicker than I expected, but I love the unique dial design and the decorations of the mechanism.  Yes I know it could be considered a knockoff of the Lange 1 Moon Phase but that does not bother me, as the latter is above my price range.

 

 
Parmigiani Tonda 1950 (Retail $20,200).  It is very thin and the platinum mini rotor is a nice feature – permits a better view of the movement than most automatic watches.  It looked great on my wrist.  But do the lumed hands make it schizophrenic?  This is a lesser known maker but perhaps results in less of a premium for the name.

 

 
Lange Up-Down (Retail $27,400).  I have not had a chance to try it on yet but I expect to be smitten. I miss the lack of a date on my Daytona and might miss it on this as well (same for the Parmigiani above).

 

 
Patek 5296R sector dial (Retail $29K).  I have not seen this discussed much on the boards and have not tried it on yet but strikes me as more versatile than most of the Calatravas, and perhaps the most versatile watch on this list.

 

 
JLC MUT Perpetual (Retail $31,600 but I expect I could get a discount to below $30K).  Not tried on yet.  I am attracted to the idea of having a perpetual calendar within my price range.  Maybe this represents the best value?  But of course the better ‘value’ would be the SS version…
 

 

 
Thanks for reading and I look forward to the feedback.

GO makes quite a tasty chrono in that style.

 

 

I'm also partial to this one:

I know people may have strong views about them but Timefactors/Precista have a number of cushion models.

Like this one:
