Congrats X 2 !

Whatever you choose makes sure it's timeless (pun not intended) rather than momentary (e.g. The Pebble).

Very nice array of watches.

Along with my Bell & Ross BR01-92, and a few Tag Heuer's I also like to collect odd balls including Philippe Starck, Oakley and this from Mini. Designed by Yves Behar the Motion can be read vertically or horizontally making telling time whilst driving easier, the strap is "C" shape or as Behar explained a "negative space". Unfortunately I have a soft spot for designers who try to uncomplicate the uncomplicated. 

On the odd ball front I'm now hunting for a Seiko Disc Burger and looking at Biegert & Funk Qlocktwo as a house clock.

On my wish list is a Richard Mille...

my everyday watch, but I do seem to get through the rubberised straps ...

I am impressed how watch technology has evolved; in theory we should all be wearing digital/electronic rather than marveling at mechanical mechanisms.

but then I also like VU gauges .....

Sweet... Always wondered what they are like to wear as my wrist is small and the Bell & Ross looks quite substantial. Same is true of course for my Radiomir, which is 45 millimeters. Somehow it seems like the only watch over 40 millimeters that I can get away with.

Three years and counting and I am still on the original leather strap.

Picked up my D-Blue last night. Smile

And finally, I've just bought this...

A Heuer Monaco CS2111 (second re-edition by Tag Heuer from yr. 2000).  I bought it from the original owner, then sold it to a very good friend, and yesterday bought it back from him.  It's 'come home'... Big Smile

I was looking at perforated straps, rally straps - all in black.. but when I held the watch case up to a brown croc strap it looked amazing. So, full clean, new strap - and here we are...

My everyday watch - typically worn next to a fashionable bracelet custom made for me out of rubber bands by one of my kids.

This is the perfect accessory for catching aliens - which is appropriate this week as my Danish residence permit renewal is soon due...

Wow your Monaco looks really nice with the brown strap, I have a CW2111 version with a plain black leather strap, when it comes up for renewal I might go brown.. Still amazed at the amount of comments I get when wearing it.

OK not a watch but I also enjoy cufflinks, wearing these today that use Seiko internals. Could someone do similar with obsolete B&O materials...

Well I suppose you could but what would you use?  Various bits of circuit board, compressed resistors etc (like you can get for pen making)  Suggestions would be welcome.

Nice cufflinks by the way.

I do still have mine, yes. I'll never sell it - it's to hand down to my Son upon me shuffling off my mortal coil.  My wife also has a Submariner Date which will be passed to our daughter - so that's them sorted when we both pop our clogs!!

They keep calling my Daytona a "Paul Newman Dial" - but I'm sure it's not.  I recall it being called a "Honey Dial" when I bought it?

Also gets a bit embarrassing when your watch is known to some as the "Victoria Beckham Posh Spice Daytona"

She's had that watch about as long as I've had mine.. Indifferent

Yes, it's a common misunderstanding. Mine (Your dial inverted)  is also called the Newman dial sometimes. But they are not. Perhaps slightly reminding of the "original Newman Dial" Daytona.

Really like this one, and it's added complication.
