If money were no object - what is the most expense watch you would buy (AND WEAR)??

If you were given a blank check - which watch (or watches) would you buy AND WEAR... this is not a question of buying something and putting it in a safe or vault.  This question is asking what is the most expensive watch you would buy and feel comfortable wearing around your family and friends and coworkers. I'm excited to hear everyone's answers!

I'd buy a Patek Philippe Sky/Moon Tourbillon.

Then I'd sell it and buy a house.

·

An early Daniel Roth chronograph, probably preferred in white gold. Pretty much invisible to non-watch people, and wildly expensive.

There's a sorta vintage G-Shock/Godzilla 6900 series that now goes for too much that I'm willing to pay for a G-Shock, I'd totally rock that without being too worried about it. Or a Zenith Chronomaster, because I like having something on wrist that let's me know exactly how long the wait for my bus is.

Would have to be grand seiko gmt quartz high accuracy the one that has a star on the dial. A do It all watch which could probably handle day to day wear 👍

MB and F MH10 Panda for Only Watch

If money were no object, you can bet that I wouldn't be slaving over a hot keyboard right now.

Watch?  Probably a Glashutte Original Sea Q 39.5

I could sport a Cellini, no problem. If anyone actually noticed, I'd claim it was fake. It just fits my old notion of Rolex as a fancy luxury watch and not some rugged tool/sport watch.

I want to say that I could wear a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date, but I would have serious impostor syndrome and worry about people chopping my hand off for it.

·

I think a Pelagos/Pelagos FXD would be about my top end. If I had a more purely office based job I would go for a JLC Reverso, but at this stage I still go to the field enough that it wouldn't get used a lot. 

·

Geez, it's tough to pick just one! LOL

I can't decide but it would probably be one of these three:

  • Birth year Tiffany stamped No Date Submariner w/ papers - for flying under the radar
  • Rose Gold Rainbow Daytona (no diamonds on bracelet) - for flying well above the radar
  • An openwoked AP...I don't know which one exactly because they're all so far out of reality, ha!

Probably one of the 35mm Saxonia models :)

I get the hypothetical was money no object, but how comfortable would you really feel with that amount of cash strapped to your wrist? I think a little bit of flex is good, and the more subtle the classier.

Curveball - if money was no object then I could afford to keep it running and let it get bashed around a bit? I would probably wear my Leonidas Easy Rider a lot more, or get an earlier Jacky Ickx version.

Or - I’d make my own. Throw a movement in a cool case (a decent ETA), maybe specially milled, get one of my pieces on the dial, get custom hands made. Money no object right?

My next watch is going to be the two-tone rootbeer from Rolex, and that is the most expensive watch I would wear regularly.

Mainly because, while Rolex is way overhyped at the moment, it doesn't remove the fact that they make the more reliable watches. I would love a Datograph, and would probably wear it on special occasions, but I can't think of anything over $20-$40 grand that I would trust hitting a door jam, that I would wear. Sure, a Richard Mille would probably survive, but I would not wear one of those :)

·

I'm a simple man. For one that I would actually wear everyday: GS Snowflake. It does it all. I'd even try to get the best example of the old Seiko/Grand Seiko logo version for more discreteness 

·

The new Patek Phillipe ANNUAL CALENDAR TRAVEL TIME REF. 5326G-001. That thing is beautifu!

I'd draw the line at the Speedmaster, I guess. Maybe also some nice vintage IWC or JLC.

Vintage Tudor Snowflake for me Ref: 94110 with snowflake hands. Fairly understated and so nice.
