    I would LOVE to find a "Colonel Pogue" Seiko 6139 with factory parts in decent condition. Hard to believe that the original sold at auction for only a few thousand!

    I've given up hope of ever getting a Rolex Daytona due to the long wait list and never having the money for one.

    My father passed away a few days ago and after we sell his house I'm going to treat myself to a new watch.

    Now I could get a never worn Daytona at an inflated price but I'm really taken with the dsotm pitch black speedy. Love that it has so much lume on it.

    The one watch I've always wanted has been a Breitling. My father wore one daily and when he passed I was supposed to get it per the will among other watches in his collection. My drug addict step brother stole all the watches and either sold or pawned them. I'm talking 2 Rolexes, a Chopard, a Breitling, and one other one I can't recall. So ever since that I've wanted a Breitling. I ended up buying one that I liked but wasn't quite like dads. I now have a Blue faced SuperOcean with the vintage braided steel bracelet and deployment clasp. I absolutely love it.

    I have this exact watch. Got in in 1971 from my father for a birthday gift. Had it reconditioned a few years ago and still runs great

    Use to be I was head over heels for an Omega Speedmaster. Thought it was gorgeous, and it was neat that it was the 'Moon watch'. At 3500 bucks, it's ever so slightly out of my price range. Instead, was introduced to the Bulova alternative, for 1/5 the price, which I love, and it scratched the itch. I don't really have a grail watch, otherwise.

    Right? A watch that cost $210 when it was produced. It sold for a ludicrous amount simply because it was once owned by some random famous guy. The ones not owned by him seem to be selling for in the 6 figures which is "market value" for luxury collectibles I guess.

    I get spending money on quality, or finery, or rarity or what have you. I think 6 figures on a watch is silly but I understand the collectible side of it. Spending insane amounts money on something simply because it was owned by a certain person is just plain stupid imho. I honestly can't think of anyone so special that I'd pay above market value for any of their possessions.
