    as of right now the only two things I want are a white bentley cont gt speed which I'll have by April [​IMG]

    and a platinum IWC Big Pilot. I've had chances at incredible deals on new IWC's but never the platinum BP. I will have one of those in the next month or two. I have about all I'll ever need so I don't really have a "grail" per se. I've quit looking at watch forums because they just killed my ability to save/invest.

    well tbh the Bentley will be "owned" by my company as I sell cars and I've wanted a plat BP for years and that is much more $ than I usually spend on watches. I'll have to get the Bentley without telling my fiancee...I wouldn't be able to get it if she knew and I'll be in the doghouse for a while afterwards. She is still mad at me that I'm not wanting to spend a lot of my money for the wedding. She won't know whether the watch is 100 bucks or 100K but she knows what a Bentley is.

    I spend much more money than I should (I currently don't have any loans/leases/mortgages on any of my personal belongings just for my company but that is very manageable) I just don't save/invest near what I should).

    Tried that one on at the store. The blue gator strap is really difficult to wear in real life, and the in-house movement on the 5001 makes the watch really thick. The non-power reserve version (I forgot the reference number) with a brown or black gator is a nicer watch.

    The holy grail for me right now would be an IWC 3717 (on leather) as posted earlier, or even more ambitiously, I would go for the IWC Top Gun.

    Clothing wise, my holy grail would be

    Looks like I'm not the only one with an IWC on my mind.

    Love having a GMT, even though I do not travel for work.

    I could probably come up with something "cooler", but the item ive wanted for a couple of years, and never manage to get in my size, are the Red wing 866 pecos boots. so nice and simple.

    DOn't know where you are... but they do crop up in the Liberty's sale.

    I remember jonesing for these when they first reissued them - they're beautifully done. By the time I got to the sale last year they were out of my size, sob.
