Well it took you a while to get there but you came in with a solid choice. I like the blued hands and the railroad track chapter ring. I have a soft spot for the IWC 40 Portugesier which is a similar species.I dislike gold immensely, do not own a single gold accessory and never will.
I do not need or want chronographs.
I do not need or want divers.
I do not need or want multiple complications in a 1-watch. Even most date windows, especially cyclops.
I generally dislike (for myself) ostentatious watches, especially brand-hammers.
I do know how I like to dress and what I like in watches; simplicity, refined.
If I could have only one watch, the first thing is I'm throwing out the arbitrary "have to be able to take it into the sea" aspect. I'm not going to reduce ~5250 wearable-hours/year to satisfy some ~50 hours/year event limit, as a determinant.
Then, it would very likely be a Hentschel H1 1877 Platinum Chronometer Werk1 movement with platinum-coated grained dial.
