    I have to second the Sinn. Great looking watch, and those guys live to innovate- big bonus in my book.

    To add some spice to the list, is second hand a consideration? I have always been a fan of the Girard Perregaux Traveller. If I recall, it's a manufacture GMT and alarm. From an underrated brand to boot. (Not my picture)
