Took my steel dial TT Daytona, blue Tudor Blue Lollipop, two hydronaut, and my Black Bay to get it... I came out on top considering current rates.

Down to:

'54 6205 Submariner
'58 5508 Submariner
'08 16610 Submariner
116515 Daytona
167188 GMT II
16013 Datejust

I have a square dress Tudor and a couple of others like Victorinox Divemaster.

Want 18K Gold Sub with blue dial and white dialed Milgauss.... then I'm done!

..... really

The gold Sub can only do as much as shine the shoes of that 5508.

Never had the urge to own something like a Day-Date 1803 or a solid gold Datejust Thunderbird?


I love gold!

This is my favorite.

Didn’t you get that cool cocktail watch this year? That is a sweet looking watch and the bracelet you paired it with was perfect.

This thread, this thread is the essence of the Lords. Here we have noted collectors, enthusiasts, parvenus, whatever, showing what they have acquired over the last year. Everything is represented, from very rare Rolexes to Casio Data Banks. They are all honest watches. They are all commendable. Just about every price range is represented, and all are honored.

This is what the simps and the feebs don't get, and will never get. They call us haterz, but they don't understand, because they look, but they do not see.

A very Merry Christmas to all the Watchlords.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

I'm no fan of the numerals on the Daytona, but I find this particular colourway really cool.

As to that GMT, in theory, I shouldn't like it. But I do. In fact, I like it a lot.

The reason why I suggested the Thunderbird is that it's a cross-breed of a Datejust and the sports models - oh, and it was made in rose gold, with a brown/slate dial.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.
