    What's next?

    So, I have finally managed to convince my wife to "loan" me some funds for my next purchase , but I'm having a tough time deciding what I'll get. This will likely be my last purchase for a long time, so I want to make it count.

    What would you recommend and why?

    The contenders, so far:

    Grand Seiko SBGR073


    I've wanted a blue dialed GS for a while now, but I really don't think I can pull of their larger 39mm+ cases. This seems like the best option for my skinny wrists.




    Omega Aqua Terra "Skyfall"




    GO PML (pre-owned)

    I've lusted after this GO for a while now, one of my favorites.




    Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue

    The perfect Seahawks watch




    Tudor Snowflake Sub
    The only vintage in the group and another watch I've lusted after for a while now and are getting harder to find.

    Tough one! There isn't a watch there I don't love.
    I'd say the GO or the Tudor, as you've wanted both for a long time

    I'd say the AT Skyfall (didnt you just sell one?) or the Tudor Sub.


    But then I would also say don't "loan" money from the Boss !! It won't be forgotten!! EVER

    FWIW: My head says Milgauss, but my heart says go vintage with the Tudor.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Since you seem fond of blue, can I just check to see if you're aware of this version of the GO?

    Decisions, decisions. I guess I'd say, if you really have wanted the Tudor and they're getting hard to find, go that way. All of the others should be available for quite a while (either new or used) without having to worry about scarcity.

    Although that GO is definitely gorgeous...

    Have you sourced the Sub ? If so all the way IMO.
    2nd choice the GO.
    But I do not see anything wrong w/ any of the pieces you are looking @.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds @ night ONLY because rough men stand ready to do VIOLENCE
    on their behalf.....
