This lunar dust edition of the Speedmaster is pretty sweet. I'm not sure I'd buy that particular watch if I was looking to spend $12k but that doesn't take away from how good it looks.
Oh hell...now that I went down this rabbit hole...the JLC Deep Sea Chronograph. Simply a stunner and fits the bill. It is SS and doesn't have a date but who cares. http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/hands-on-with-the-jaeger-lecoultre-deep-sea-chronograph
This is an AWESOME watch. I had forgotten all about it so thanks for the reminder. I was looking at it a while back but ended up getting my E2 instead as at the time the JLC wasn't quite available yet and projected to be a bit over budget. It is now next on the list. Do we think the ceramic version is worth the extra few £££?
Any love for the Seiko 6139 "Pogue"? I should have picked up the golden dial a couple years back when they were cheaper. I am on the fence about picking one up. Some say the movement design is superior, but I have also heard that because the friction clutch holds the chrono stopped and wears over time, it is better to leave the chrono running. Seems like a contradiction to me:
not the original internal bezel, but still a good look:
