    nothing aspirational but better than rado even if you need to buy a new one every 5 years rather than once in your life

    I don't really have a list of best watches, since there really is no "best" watch. It's all down to personal preference.

    I love my Ben Sherman watch. Nothing extravagant. Simple large face with silver dials and a light brown suede strap. £65. Simple.

    Other than those perhaps a nice steel Rolex or Omega.

    1. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak
    2. Rolex GMT Master II
    3. Omega Speedmaster Professional
    4. Cartier Santos
    5. Jeager LeCoultre Reverso

    By 'Best' I suppose you mean the most iconic watches. If we are looking at the most high quality watches, one would have to include brands like FP Journe, A Lange & Sohne, Patek etc

    If we are looking at the most innovative watches, one would have to say Grand Seiko, Rolex Submariner, Seiko Astron, Bulova Accutron

    If I could have ANY 5 watches: A Lange & Sohne Saxonia, Rolex Yachtmaster I Platinum, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, Rolex Milgauss GV, Any Breguet

    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.

    If you like Kors watches then you shouldn't listen to what anyone else says. Do you!

    I wouldn't want anything flashy. Cannot stand gold straps and cases.
