    I was fortunate enough to get the watch I love for an anniversary gift. Ive had it for 4 years now and I still love it. ( I just can't get a good pic of it to save my life so here is a stock photo)

    Nice TAG Heuer.

    Must admit that my heart recently liked the look of the black dial F1 model with white skeleton hands. (Despite the fact that TAG Heuer went insane with putting their name everywhere on that model. Including the strap.)

    Congrats on the nice Tag Dozer! !Yeah, they put their logo all over it. I have a white faced F1 Grand Date. I LOVE it though.

    We do but the main problem is I have large wrists and like most watches it really doesn't fit...

    Likewise. Hey, if it's good enough for NASA, it's good enough for me.

    Any Pan would do but the Panerai Luminor 1950 Chrono Rattrapante would my Holy Grail of watches.

    I'm with mtwarden, Sinn U1 is the top of my list right now. I also have a rule when it comes to watches. With so many great watches out there I limit myself to one per manufacture.

    My grandfather's circa 1974 Rolex Sub Date. My uncle has it now, but I am next in line.

    Seiko Kinetic Chronograph SLQ001. I really like the looks and functionality of this machine. It is the ultimate analog chronograph watch in my opinion. It is also exceptionally rare with only 1,000 pieces ever made from what I understand. Prices soar over the $6000 mark.

    As if it's ever going to happen. But one can dream.

    me likey! check out the t-touch watches from tissot. barometric pressure, both meteorological and altitude, stop watch, egg timer, compass, 2 alarms, thermometer and 2 time zones...all in the watch itself by touching the watch face! not quite as pricey as the seiko kinetic, but love the features!

    Call me "Old School" but I think the U.S. issued Ordnance Department watches issued to American G.I.s are in a class all their own. For example, the aged beauty of this WWII Elgin.

    Now tell me thats not a beautiful watch. An almost 70 year old piece of history ticking away on your wrist.

    And for those who can't afford or find a vintage military time-piece in excellent, working, condition; there's the Bulova Men's 96A102 canvas strap watch (pictured below).
