    The former is more interesting because it forces you to compromise. In addition, the choices can be more useful and applicable to most people.

    well, then, i have to think about that. my general watch daydreaming does not go in that direction. this requires some thought.

    I can only think of three: PP 5110P, FPJ Resonance, JLC Reverso Platinum Sun Moon (the old version, not the XGT stuff)

    In no particular order...

    Piaget Altiplano manual wind with subdial for seconds
    Patek rectangular Gondolo for something off the beaten path
    JLC Reverso (not sure which model I would really want, but it has to be the GT size. I find the XGT cased watches too thick and not as versatile for me).
    AP RO Chronograph
    Lange Cabaret or Lange 1.

    +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

    -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.
