There are so many I'd love to own but I would'nt say I've got got 10 must haves.

However, I'd love an IWC 3717 but probably won't ever own one, I've always loved the Sinn Arktis too and I will be owning one shortly as I placed an order for one last week, it won't be long now :grin:

I'm not really looking for anything at the moment, with the possible exception of the Corum Golden Bridge, but they are out of my price range. :(

Not my kind of thing at all, but I can appreciate the workmanship. Probably a silly question, but have you watched this vid on YouTube: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=NOdmoGoh3ck

Pretty amazing stuff.

I think I'd also go with the Sinn U1 - nice to aim for something that's just about achievable, rather than pining away for something I'll never get!

Grail for me is the Rolex Milgauss I'm sorry to say as I can't see myself ever being able to afford one....

More realistically one of the Omega Aqua Terra Railmaster models - I like the blue hands but am not sure if there was ever one of those with blue hands in the largest of the case sizes.

New to the forum but learning fast about watches and can't tell the difference (yet) betwen the good, bad and ugly.

As an engineer I am drawn to mechanical ingenuity quality and elegance so the most important thing for me is the designer and manufacturer of the movement. I like to see what's in there so glass back are great! As for all the smoke and mirrors (and inflated prices) that brand managers drum up for companies who just make the cases that leaves me cold I'm afraid.

So my current Ideal would be the best auto movement I can get in a simple case at the best price unbranded. I just don't know what that is yet!

Hmmm, can't think of 10, but I do fancy:

:) a mint, white-faced, WWII, Kriegsmarine wrist-watch.

:) a PVD Rolex Submariner (you know, a Pro-Hunter or Bamford & Sons custom job).

:) IWC Flieger MkXV, oh and throw in an Aquatimer while were talking about IWCs.

:) a nice, vintage, Omega dress watch of some sort; maybe one of those ss-dialled tanks from the 1930s.

So that's about £15k worth. Perhaps this thread should be called 'top ten can't affords' :(
