The Watch Appreciation Thread - Page 1098

+1 on the Resonance, although with prices up over 50% the past three years this is floating beyond my reach. Not to mention the inevitable Journe servicings required.

I'll also add the new Lange Datograph, which corrected the design flaws which kept me from the now discontinued original.

gdl - I passed on the JLC platinum sun moon a few months back, so let me know if you'd like the contact.

I am going to go with 5 that are sort of attainable for me. For reference, all I have right now is a Dornblueth 99.1 (blue face) and a Sinn U1:

JLC Reverso - dont like the 1931, and like Dino, would need to be a smaller case
Vintage Rolex, something that doesnt have the cyclops date and doesnt have a ton of numbers around the bezel, the SD posted on this page is right up my alley
IWC 3705 - the ceramic fleiger, very hard to find
JLC MUT

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.
