My 2 cents. If I had 25k and looking to cover the casual base I'd get the JLC Master control chrono and the new Rolex Sea Dweller pocket the rest for your next watch.

+1, especially this one. But I also wouldn't blow this much money on my first watch (or tenth, for that matter).

What about the obvious alternatives? Speedmaster (yes, doesn't look similar to a Daytona, but has a similar standing plus is about as sporty) or a Tudor Chrono?

Nice one!

Thanks for the suggestions, Sander. Both those look great. I'll have to shop around.

Some pics of the THC in Blue. Still growing on me, contemplating trading it for a BB in blue. We'll see.

Rather nice, but I personally prefer the grey/black one (not the black/grey one ;-) )
post #34089 of 48312
That was the first one I noticed. Certainly the more dressy of the two, although the thickness makes it difficult to pair with anything in business.

Enjoying the great weather.

Ive never really gone into nice watch boutiques to try stuff on, assuming that most salespeople get annoyed with having looky-loos fondle their wares, but my growing interest in the Speedy pro finally convinced me to walk into the Omega boutique at South Coast Plaza today and ask to see it (the tie probably helped). The salesperson, John, was very nice (and had some interesting stories about his experience in the design industry) and spent some time talking about the lunar dust speedmaster before bringing out a standard speedy pro (moonwatch), and I must say, this is truly a stunning, quality piece. I assumed it would be too heavy, having been wearing a titanium watch for some time now, but it felt very light and comfortable even with all of its links. It sits at a good height, unlike the towering Carerras that try to compete against it. The twisted lugs are a stroke of design genius, and the mix of brushed/polished surfaces was a pleasure. I left pretty firmly resolved that it would be my first serious watch purchase when I close some cases and get some money in.

Yeah, the speedy is pretty much a classic watchnut watch. I'm seriously considering consolidating my watch collection, and even though I don't wear the speedy as often as I'd like, I probably will never get rid of it. It just impresses me as an "important" watch.

This picked my interest too, maybe have a look at this: http://gearpatrol.com/2013/07/30/want-this-get-this-vintage-rolex-daytona-or-tudor-big-block-chronograph/

There are a few more references besides the big block, some with smaller Daytona cases.

If we're still spending dieworkwear's money, then I agree with TC.

That Daytona is an absolute smoke show. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

For those of you who like Spectators and AP. Or for those who just like AP.
