    I really enjoy checking into this thread. I have an Air King and a Seiko SKX007, but it's cool for me to be able to see the wide variety of watches that people have/appreciate here. Thanks for broadening my horizons! Happy New Year to all.

    This is my list. I think all of these watch I can realistically get in the future. Of coarse I would love to own a Patek 5960 or a ALS Datograph, and etc.



    ALS Lange 1 moonphase in rose gold

    VC Patrimony in platinum

    Rolex GMT 1675 gilt dial

    Rolex Daytona ref 6264 in yellow gold .... I really love those vintage gold Rolex sport watches.

    (Okay I lie on this one... I'll probably have to settle for a SS one :foo:)

    I saw the Lange 1 Moonphase the other day... Jaw droppingly beautiful.

    By the way, I think that I have made my decision. I am 99% sure that I am going to go (not GO) for the JLC MUT Moon. It is just such a gorgeous watch. And I may put the remainder in something less expensive to bum around in. Perhaps a Stowa, or something of that ilk. That is still to be determined.

    Also, happy new years to all! I have had a great time reading, learning, and talking shop with y'all over the last year.

    On an unrelated tangent, any recommended JLC ADs? Been looking at Govberg. In addition, I was looking around for watches for the lady friend, as she asked. My goodness are women's watches ever a scam! I was looking at the Michele watches in particular, and it is UNBELIEVABLE what they are getting away with... Murder! Touting strap changing as something revolutionary? It is absolutely absurd. For a close to $2,000 watch for some of them, you are getting so little it is absurd. They feel incredibly flimsy as well.

    I am looking forward to it, Newcomer!! Then we will both have a dual moon collection!!! I am thinking of a stowa flieger (no date no logo)--you too? Kinda freaky our tastes are so aligned but kinda awesome as well.

    As for womens watches, yeah pretty much a total scam. Stick to Cartier or get a Rolex Datejust/Explorer. At 36mm you can steal it on occasion [​IMG]

    For some inspiration, a repost:
