I was in an Omega showroom with a friend a few days past where I viewed a Speedmaster that would cost, after discounts and everything, just under 5000 USD.

'You mad? I'd get a few different watches for a few hundred dollars each and wear them, for 5000 USD', my friend remarked.

He isn't a watchhead and can thus be forgiven, but he did get me thinking. Let's say you were given (only on Top Gear do you get 'given' money, but pray read on) $4900 (I surreptitiously keep the extra $100) to spend on 7 watches, one for each day of the week. Which ones would you choose? And why?

These all have to be brand new, mind.

OK, I've given this some thought. You said they have to be new and I've managed that. You also said there had to be seven watches but I've managed to get 8! I estimate that the $4900 converts to around £3200 so here goes:

Dreadnaught Voyager - £875

Seiko Tune SBBN015 - £675

Seiko SARB035 - £240

PRS-22 Speedbird III - £470

PRS-20 Italian - £365

PRS-25 Smiths Everest - £245

PRS-18Q - £185

G-Shock GW-M5600 - £100

I make that £3155 so I have a bit left over for a few new straps.
