    Always been a huge fan of the Seamaster. Maybe someday...

    I bought my Planet Ocean 8500 calibre about 10 months ago and can honestly say it has been my best ever purchase to date. I did more research after I bought it than before. Instead of getting what you guys in the States call 'buyers remorse' the research online merely compounded my feelings regarding it being the one for me. I bought it with the steel bracelet but have loads of different straps to provide a new look every week.

    The cost is substantial but life is too short and unpredictable for me not to have gone for it.

    I've always wanted a mechanical pocketwatch with a wound mechanism and a hinged lid. I've got a battery operated one, but I've always preferred mechanical watches that could be wound, eliminating the need for batteries.

    Toss up between Resco RC-Tac, and a Kobold SMG 2.

    The Rolex Submariner has always attracted me but I got to confess I like the old cases more than the current line. The maxi case with those fat lugs is really ugly. So, the ultimate would be a pre 2008 submariner.

    There are other watches I watch online drooling in front of the screen like the AP Royal Oak or some IWC model but the Sub is the one.

    I really want the Citizen Eco-Drive Aviator...and I'll get sometime in the next 6 months most likely.


    But all time? Probably the U-Boat U-51....Wish I could find a knockoff or similar one.

    A Seamaster (unless I'm allowed to be really insane about this, and then I'd pick an IWC)

    I agree. Those older Submariners are better.

    My grail has changed I do believe. Now I want either an excellent Swiss Submariner homage (I refuse to pay for the Rolex name) or a Panerai of some sort.
    Maybe a real Russian diver's watch. Not the Invicta knockoff, a real Volodaz.

    i have a lot of watches on my wishlist. But if it's that ONE watch.. it would have to be the White Gold Daytona.

    For the affordable ones I always wanted a Seiko SKX007. Have one now for nearly two years and don't regret it.

    For the one I would never afford it's a Omega Seamaster or a Rolex Submariner.

    I've definitely had my eyes on a IWC Big Pilot Miramar for a while. I "settled" for a Citizen Skyhawk AT
