    Don't know where to buy this or how much it is, so I will place it on my grail list. [​IMG]

    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.
