You guys have some choice watches. Here’s my 1983 Rolex datejust. My dad got it as a wedding gift when he got married and then passed it on to me when i got married. 

Nice. Dunno what it is about a simple nato strap on a Rolex but... yeah. Want.

Yeah I’ve got a lot of different straps including the original jubilee, Hermès tie strap and other more colorful nato but i wear the plain single color ones most of the time.

It's cool when you can switch the straps and it feels like a different watch.

60s Sportsmatic, found pretty much NOS, on a  NOS but probably later Seiko branded Stelux chainmail bracelet:

My seagull 1963 Reissue. Love the watch, it's very quirky and unique. I have Been saving up to buy a dive style watch, maybe a Seiko or Orient.

I'm a big fan if the cosmograph daytona. On the left is my stainless steel version. The one on the right is my friend's rose gold model with diamonds. His is a little blingy for my taste but different strokes i guess...

YEAH. KEEP ON DREAMING LOUIS. This is more likely, my other occasionally worn counterpart. that patek was beautiful though. had the luxury of being shown around the PP showroom in london, 1 of 3 in the world with a workshop in the basement as well..

I wouldn't dare touch a Patek, or an FP for that matter (my personal holiest of holies) for fear of illusions of grandeur...Very cool experience though I'm sure!

Mostly this - beaten up 1971 speedy.

Strong showing everyone...Curious if anyone is also on watchuseek?

Additionally, any 2018 purchases in mind? More Seiko for me, but I want an MM300 (ref. SBDX017) as they'll be removing the "MARINE MASTER" text moving forward if the 2018 leaks are anything to go by. Also considering a 9F quartz GMT from Grand Seiko, reference B8T007. I'm still embarassed by the faux Rolex design on the top two, but very cool to finally have a 9F GMT:
 

Would've wanted the 6159 historical reissue as it's my favorite watch of all time, but too rich for my wallet:

Waiting for a Nomos club with display back to be delivered - quite looking forward to that.

Other than that, something I’d like to get a nice panda dial chrono - maybe a top time.

Casio dw5600

It's hard to believe how Casio used to be a joke watch you got at Woolworth's, then was all the rage with G-Shock (had one in high school) and now they have trendy G-Shock stores in swanky shopping districts.

oh how i wish there wasn't a waiting list for the nautilus/ aquanaut because that's the one i've been lusting after. although i did get a "wink wink" on that list if i ever one day decide to put a solid down for that one day. funny, just the other day, i was thinking about x+1 and how there couldn't be any grails as there's always room for 1 more. and now you've reminded me of FP Journe. Those watches are beautiful. sadly i haven't come across one in person yet :(

for 2018, hopefully a 6694 rolex ideally or the apple watch (don't laugh!) celluar has been on my mind of late..

Tudor today- 9ct presentation watch for 45 years' service with British Rail:

Apart from some missing lume in the hands it (was) in pretty perfect condition. Particularly happy that it has the Rolex signed crown:

^ Nomos is great, not only with their unique designs, but since they make their own movements and offer a level of fit & finish that rivals watches two or three times the price.  The Orion 38 Datum is another beauty:
