    Eco-Drive solar charging on a Precisionist hi-frequency quartz, with the high accuracy of the first series Precisionists, and with normal sized less funky designs.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    The practical stuff:

    1) More chronographs used thinner movements (like Ebel's 137). I'd still have my Chronoris if it wasn't quite as tall.
    2) All but the most expensive dress watches had drilled lugs - Thanks for being sensible Grand Seiko.
    3) Every bracelet had something like Rolex's Easylink extension...I could see this happening one day.
    4) Field watches used acrylic crystals.

    me and a bunch of luxury watches.. dozens of Rolex and Grand seiko...

    that-would-be-awesome -but-will-sadly-probably-never-happen




    oh, you mean in the watch industry?
    - then a luxury automatic that would never need costly maintenance...

    - or... mechanical/automatic Diver G-Shock..

    - affordable ($300-500) Rolex...

    - inexpensive seiko spring-drive.

    1. Country of origin determined by 75% parts value.

    2. Watch parts available to independent and accredited watch repairers.

    3. A watch repairer in every town with a population of more than 5,000.

    Longines rightly takes its place above Omega within Swatch...
