Already bought my dream watch a few years ago, an Omega Seamaster... Blue 007, of course...

Watch Analog watch White Light Azure

I guess if I hit the lottery I might have to have a gold Patek Philippe Calatrava... just the thing for all those black-tie events I'm never invited to... :vs_cool:

That beautiful 007 Bond Watch that premiered in Goldeneye, is a beautiful watch. I have the Black dialed 50th anniversary but really like the blue dial too. I used to have a blue dialed Seamaster Quartz years ago. They have one of the most comfortable steel bands and scalloped bezels. You won't be sorry for buying any version of that watch. Bond watches are quite popular. I even like the Casino Royale version but I really liked the backside of the 50th with the barrel turns and a brass rotor that's visibly turns.

Omega and all of the Swatch Corp make great time pieces. Sometimes I don't agree with their marketing or changes but they are suave and comfortable time pieces.

"What should we start with?"
"An '82 Margaux."
"Is it good?"
"Good? It will make you believe in God!"

Okay, these are my lame iPhone pictures but I thought I would post my AP Royal Oak Offshore diver. Really my favorite. I would never take it in the water. That's just silly.
Same with this older 50th anniversary Bond Omega Seamaster Pro.

It's almost midnight so no pretty photo box lighting. Just front room canned lights. Sorry.

If price and availability were NO factor in your decision what ONE watch would you get and why?
Dear Jon,
this - the IWC II Destriero Scafusia (Warhorse from Schaffhausen). Has just about every complication conceivable. Do I need a tourbillon, a moonface or a minute repeater? No but then I am supposed to be rich so there:vs_laugh:

Be safe

Jon is not with us. He passed suddenly years back. He was a good friend and founder of the original PUFF. I am sure he is looking down and smiling ." As long as one is remembered he is never truly dead".- Nino :vs_cool:

I have bought and sold several of my dream watches. The shortlish list would be...

Gerard Perregeaux Seahawk II Pro Titanium
Sinn U1000
Omega Planet Ocean 45.5 Black Dial

I really regret selling some of the watches I’ve owned, especially since some are no longer made or hard to find.

I’d like to find a good example of another Sinn U1000 and an Omega Planet Ocean 600M 45.5 Blue Dial Liquid Metal Titanium. Both are out of production and out of my current budget.

If I had to have only 1, at the moment, it would be the Omega PO Blue Dial mentioned above.

I could dig this one....might actually be able to afford one at some point in the future without hitting the lottery.

The TAG Calibre 16 Movement is a workhorse and based off the Val 7750 28800 bph base. I'm currently wearing my TAG Aquaracer Chronograph with the same engine and this watch has been running for me since 2005.

That is a great choice for an attainable piece that will serve you well for years. Hope you are able make it happen.

I’d like to get a Damasko DA36 and a Zelos Bronze Diver.

Believe me, there’s higher models I’d give my left but to have, but due to my job as a Police Officer. I’d be too afraid losing or damaging one in a fight.
