    Where are IWC and/or None of the above?

    If I had to choose one I would probably say the Jaeger. I like the Dualmatic.

    The tank , classic and elegant, later surpassed in cost but never in style

    Just because this is Patek or because you like the watch?

    I like all of them but i guess the Omega may be the last in my list.

    My favorite currently may the Seiko (don't laugh.).

    The Omega is classic, simple, timeless, and has an antique quality to it. The Cartier is the only other watch on there that I think has the same set of qualities, but I like the leather strap on the Omega so that's why I voted for it.

    The JL is much more timeless than the Omega (which looks outdated), it is also simplier (not even a second hand) and as much classical as the Omega (rounded, thin, small size and leather strap)

    I'd say the Cartier tank -- it's the only one besides the B&M to the left of it, that looks timeless & elegant. The Seiko's okay for sport, I suppose.

    The JL doesn't look elegant and classic, neither the Patek does?

    Seiko = for casual

    Definately the Cartier. Definately not the best mechanically, but for timeless elegance and style, it cannot be beaten.

    Ernest, do you use them? Only two of them are within an hour of each other.
