    PP grand master chime
    Rolex date just
    Rolex GMT master 2 (pvd coated blue half bezel)
    Panerai MM
    IWC pilot (any)

    I'm a huge watch fan but sadly not nearly as knowledgeable on the expensive stuff, I tend to hover around the affordable stuff such as Seiko sarb065 or the second gen black monster.

    Regards to hublot they are over priced standard ETA movements and IMO look like bricks on the wrist.

    The royal oak is also over rated in its design there's nothing that special for me, saying that I love a sleek and well proportioned case.

    Another grail of mine is the Sinn 809.

    If you're watch serious come on over to watchuseek forums, we are all enablers lol.
    The Sarb065 is gorgeous, I also have a Sarb in my collection (Sarb017 Alpinist)

    I also second the bulova Accutron/precisionist lone, the smooth sweeping second hand on a +/-10 second a year quartz watch is amazing, great prices too

    This was £70 on eBay like new, no issues at all!

    I really want the Alpinist, yet to have a green dialed watch and I love the hands on the Alpinist, the 065 really is stunning I recommend it! Poor photo

    As said, best is an impossible and, frankly, stupid way of categorising them and - unsurprisingly - only comes from someone who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.

    Having said that, money no object, one of the Speedmasters that made it to the moon on Apollo 11 would be on my list.

    That dial is beautiful, shame I have too many dress watches in my collection. This is my newest acquisition, a Certina Action Diver Automatic

    Agreed, any watch can be the best for someone, I don't like how OP is disregarding some people's choices such as Casio etc, my little casio has been with me since the start of high school and 7 years later still running in the same battery and everything works.

    Did you know a Rolex also made it to the moon.

    Yeah, a number of Rolexes and Omegas did over the years, but it's that thing about being the first that gets me.

    I also have a thing about WW2 and 1950s era pilot watches, particularly those made for the military. They were made in their thousands so they're not overly valuable, but the style is something else. Ofc, OP wouldn't like them because they don't cost enough...

    That looks beautiful, the blue really pops, I've been eying up some vintage Certina dress watches but the prices are eye watering 😭

    Haha yes, big and expensive seems to be the original criteria. I have a few old 50s watches with simple movements inside, I really wish they were slightly larger but the trend back then seems to be small.

    That's my most pricey watch, £65. Got it for my 18th from my sister. The second thing is my St Christopher I got from my Parents also for my 18th. £150. I'd much rather have an expensive St Christopher or signet ring than a watch.

    I like the minimalist design on the dial and the brown strap!

    Similar style to my AARK tidal
