Does anyone have $12,500 - Page 2

AC, if you like the Patek aesthetic for this particular watch, I suggest looking at some of the newer model Zeniths (reserve de marche), and the second-hand market for Glashutte Originale.  I wouldn't be surprised if the price on the latter skyrockets in the next few years.
Interesting that you brought up Glashutte Original.  I already own this Glashutte Original Panomatic Date.  This is a photograph of my actual watch; I bought it from the poster after he replaced the bracelet with a black croc band.  Were you thinking of the off-center-dials GOs like this one, or the more conventional Senator line?

AC, I was thinking about that particular Glashutte. IMO, the best deal in terms of styling compared to the Patek highlighted at the start of the thread, and significantly cheaper than the larger Lange 1s. Maybe I just dont know enough about watches to appreciate PP... If I ever earn a decent income, ok maybe more than decent for this collection, I'll probably include five or six watches in my everyday/dress rotation: 1) IWC Portofino 2) Cartier Tank Francaisse S/S 3) Blancpain Villeret Chronograph (18k WG/black strap) 4) Lange 1815 or the Glashutte Senator (Rose Gold, brown strap) 5) JLC Art Deco Reverso (dream on...) 6*) Maybe an Oris or Omega Seamaster as an everyday beater... ...while driving a Toyota Camry or Volvo w/ AWD. Yes, I wouldn't be surprised if my clothing and watch retailed for more than my automobile. Priorities people.

I think my current wish list is: Breitling Chrono Avenger Zenith (different models) Lange (diff models) Patek (diff Complication models) I have invested quite a bit of money in cars, and will likely continue to...next car after the 996 will likely be a new M5 or E55 as I get a little more practical.
