    Which Brand do you think is most represented here on IWL

    When I did a count recently I reckoned 14 JeanRichard watches were recently purchased by IWL members but I am sure there are several other brands that have more representation here. What do you think?

    We have several Rado owners with significant numbers -

    Rolex pops up regularly on WRUW -

    Surely lots of us have a Seiko tucked away some where -

    Not forgetting Rick "I have more Ebel watches than all you put together" Denney !

    So, lacking any scientific basis what so ever, which is the most numerous brand here?

    Q2 Having seen 2 beautiful Breguet Marine watches, which is the single watch model with the highest ownership here?

    For my guesses I am tempted to say Rado for the brand but I have a sneeking suspicion there is a pile of Swatch watches hiding here.

    For single watch I am thinking Rolex sub but do we consider the different model numbers individually, so I am not convinced the latest no date sub would actually be the correct answer.

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    There is a lot of Omega love on the forum, especially for the Speedmaster, and I am firmly in the Zenith camp for the El Primero and Captain series.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.
