Has to be my Orient Symphony. Bought it to cheer myself up after a motorcycle accident on the day of my History A level last year!I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it as it is the perfect watch for me. 41mm, in house movement, white dial, simple and elegant, can be worn worn for formal and around the house. Perfect mix of polished and brushed finishes in the right places. I would say it's the 'flagship' of my collection

I wouldn't say it's my favourite current watch but I will pick this.     Like most of us,  I have obsessed about certain watches for a period of time before buying,  as well as making some snap decisions to buy on sight with certain watches.     Being a complete sucker for unusual / special edition / graphic dial watches,     my eyes just about pinged out of my skull when I saw this.     Not a rare or especially important watch by any means but..

I think, it the wifey put her foot down and said, there can only be one. I reckon it would be this one.

 

That's a whole different thread waiting to happen. I've no idea which I'd keep.:sad:

My favourite changes from day to day, but most often is the 6139-7070. Perfect size, perfect shape, lovely dial.

If only I could take a good picture of it.

Got this when my boy passed out as a Royal Marine. TBH would prefer it without the logo and maybe engraved on the back, but totally bulletproof comfortable easy to see never to be sold watch. Also love the knurled crown which is perfect to use. I do have a new love, but only three days in so early doors.

Got to be my Colt 44.  As it has a brushed braclet I dont worry about scratches so much.  I must wear this at least half the time to three quarters.

But my OVM gets the other half but this may change now its summer.

As said above the 007 is always a good goto watch as well.

​Yes like the story perhaps we should have a section for watches with a story to tell or a history or reason for buying them etc.

I've had three real beaters.

This one is quite accurate and I've banged it up a little bit over the years.

This one is quite accurate and was fairly banged up when I bought it, so no worries there.

I purchased this one because it was bright and shiny, as well as red and blue, and I was bored. I really need to take the back off and do some adjusting. I have been wearing it for two or three months for no reason at all.:biggrin:

My SMP, bought as a belated 40/ wedding gift by my wife. Most unexpected went to london to by my son a tag for his 21st. Bought him one but tried the omega on at the same time. The wife saw my face when I had to give it back to the salesman. Left  the shop got on train at Charring Cross train stopped at Waterloo  and she got off the train. I asked what she was doing . She said, "going to buy you that watch".

Couldn't believe my luck. She's a keeper as is the watch.
