    '0' Charge. Complete service under warranty. The Issue was that the Date was changing , however the Day was not.

    New suggestions:

    JLC Polaris Reissue 1968 (the one without the dauphine hands)
    JLC Deep Sea Reissue 2011 European Version

    I think these two have a chance to appreciate over time. Especially the Polaris 68

    Vintage suggestions:

    Patek Calatrava
    A vintage VC or AP rotor automatic
    Benrus Type 1 Dive
    Heuer Bundeswehr chrono
    Omega Centenary

    So, just for fun, thought I would post my list for my next watch purchase. Still on the horizon... but I am working on it :). Selling off a bunch of my wardrobe, so I figured I would start saving!

    Looking for something that is dressy [all I have now is a Damasko DC56 and Seiko Blue Sumo, so those are my go-to tool watches], but ideally something that could be worn with business casual. And here are the contenders--please feel free to offer suggestions:

    Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Master Ultra Thin [not decided on size].

    [​IMG]

    I would get this with the silver dial, however. Although I love the MUT, a bit worried about it being worn in anything less than a suit or tie, which is a bit discouraging.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Reserve de Marche.

    [​IMG]

    Probably number one on the list right now.

    Grand Seiko SBGA011—“Snowflake” Spring Drive.

    [​IMG]

    Maybe number two on the list... so many decisions!

    Dornblueth & Sohn 99.1.

    [​IMG]

    There is a lot to like about Dornblueth, so much character, and I love the Bauhaus style.

    Dornblueth & Sohn 99.2.
