Only two grails that really strike my fancy - but what grails they are!

-ALS Saxonia in rose gold
-JLC Master Ultra Thin moon phase in stainless steel

Hm I don't envision myself wanting much more than a Lange 1 Moonphase, FP Journe Calendrier or Resonance, and a Patek that I have not yet decided on. Maybe something else with a tourbillon.

"Damn," I'm not a jealous person, but I can feel it creeping up on me! 1 of the coolest semi-sports watchesfing02[1].gif

Personally I am content with my late 70's 1680. At this point I can't justify the rose limited edition gold Langematik. Unfortunately I have a shoe habit.

Dream watches, in no particular order:

- Lange 1 101.027x - LE with blued hands



- PP "Advanced Research" Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5550P



- JLC Reverso Platinum Number 2 Ref. 270.6.48



- Rolex ref 6538 "Big Crown" Submariner



...have one spot left for future infatuations.

So I have decided I want to be on the hunt for a Daytona produced during the year I was born 1979 - anyone have any suggestions for where the best places to track one down would be? There is no rush and am happy to just monitor the various watch boards but thought the knowledgeable folks here might have even better leads. Feel free to PM as I don't want to waste others' time on the board.

Also if anyone has thoughts on what would be fair for me to expect to pay I would appreciate the info. Thanks much and have a Happy New Year.

Guys who have the "WATCH BUG," are insatiable, I know it well! Anyway, well said!

my choices in no particular order:

 

1. PP World time (5110 in platinum or the 5130 Mecca edition just to be fancy)

2. JLC Reverso (1931 US edition 2nd version aka brown strap or possibly the vanilla white dial with Arabic numerals or TBD)

3. 1680 Rolex Red Submariner

4. 1675 Rolex GMT Pepsi bezel

5. Long shot: JLC Master World Geographic (if it ever gets redesigned)

I like this one, but not the silicon parts. For a PP perpetual, I prefer the 5140P.

I've been thinking about this for a couple of days and will need some time to complete. However, the following come to mind immediately so I'll start there (images courtesy of google img search).

 

IWC 3713 Der Doppel:

 

1000

 

 

Rolex Mil Sub

 

1000

 

Grande Lange 1 Platinum:

 

1000

 

 

 

Paul Newman Daytona:

 

1000

 

And I'll leave the last slot open...for now.
