      Not that I need to fuel my obsession, but what watch(es) are you considering for your next purchase? Here are the two I plan to buy within the next year:

      Longines Heritage Column-Wheel Chronograph
      - I tried this on last week and loved it. Great design, the movement is unique and I figure I had better purchase a Longines relatively soon before Swatch starts moving the brand upwards to take Omega's slot.




      Nomos Club 36mm
      - I love German watches and Nomos as a brand in particular. Most of their models are stunning, but very dressy, and the Club is definitely more versatile. I still cannot decide between black and white...if only all decisions were so simple.



      I want the non-date, but here are the two dial colors. The black has lume, the white does not.

      I tried on a Panerai 111 recently and I think I'm in trouble. Considering selling my Ball, my Anonimo and whatever else I can find around the house to swing it.
      Expose your cracks and love will fill them.

      Is rediculous how they're moving omega into rolex pricing. I love the new Speedmaster pro (even though most of the purists hate it) but $8 grand its just absurd.

      I would agree with you there. I think the only Omega models that remain reasonably priced (I use that term loosely) are the cheapest cal 8500 models. The 8500 movement really is rather special, and in the base Planet Ocean and Aqua Terra, not outrageously expensive.

      I'd love a 45mm Planet Ocean but the one watch I really want is one I sold a few years back (sadly cuz I really needed the $$)... A JLC Master Compressor Memovox. Discontinued... I really, really want one.

      I was gonna post up a hard-to-find Citizen chrono that I've been looking all over for, but on second thought, I don't think I'm big enough to play in this sandbox

      But in all seriousness, probably a relatively inexpensive quartz chronograph.

      since I'm poor, Seico 5 is next on my list.
      Also want a Citizen ecodrive (undecided on model) , a Bulava 96a102, an Orient 'Black Mako'

      On the high end, someday I want a Tag Monaco, a Omega Seamaster or Speedmaster..... someday

      Nice link! congrats!

      Seiko 5 is a nice watch too! you might also think about watching ebay seiko divers. you can score a really nice 20 year old rebuilt automatic for around a hundred bucks...They really are a nice watch.

      Actually Thats probably going to be MY next watch...



      something like this... custom face, plongeur hands, pepsi ring...

      I dont have the watch yet but I have the face Im going to use... Ill buy the parts and build it myself. should be fun/interesting

      My next watch will be a victorinox, either a 500m or maverick.
