    Sorry if this topic has already been discussed numerous times, a quick search didn't show anything up.

    If you could have any watch, which watch would you choose?

    A Lange, whichever one has the fewest complications, I like them simple looking.

    #2 is a JLC reverso duo.

    Something nice and guilloche-ed by Breguet or Leroy. And a moonphase indicator because they are cute.

    I'm surprised by your choice of such an eye-catching watch as the Journe. It's technically fascinating even to a non-watch person like myself, yet all those dials put me off. Not that anyone has any reason to care about my opinion -- I just type out loud from time to time.
