    SHOW & SHARE YOUR TOP-3 FAVORITE WATCHES...
    you bought in 2010, and presumably got lots of wrist-time as part of your daily rotation.

    In my case, since joining *WUS* in June of this year (2010) I picked up a handful as I embarked on a modest collection (still saving up for that grail watch).

    Here are my top-3 favorites for 2010:
    #3 -> Tauchmeister Limited Edition Diver #34/200
    #2)-> Moscow Classic Aeronavigator (Vostok 2416)
    #1)-> Bernhardt Binnacle Diver (picture borrowed from RTomson - Thanks)

    This was my best purchase of the year - a 1966 (my birthyear) JLC Memovox caliber 825:






    A close second would be this 1961 Flagship caliber 341, but it's only second to the JLC because I just bought the JLC where this was purchased in the first part of the year:






    There are too many ties for 3rd. It was a good year and I'm very happy with all my purchases. I wear the '67 Omega Seamaster Chronostop caliber 865 the most on days off. The '61 Piaget caliber 9P goes to work more frequently than other vintage dress watches. Here's the run down from a couple weeks ago: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/2010...ng-481203.html

    I joined WUS this year to research a watch for work and everyday use. It was a Sinn 856.

    I also have been interested in Zenith since I have bought a Zenith quartz some 20 years ago. In November of this year I purchased a new Zenith Elite.

    1. Zenith El Primero ref. A 386 - a grail of grails, and the second I have had - just as thrilling as the first time around


    2. Zenith Cairelli CP-2 - hunted high and low for one, and probably ended up overpaying, but NOT sorry


    3. Zenith Diver Chrono in a Super Compressor case ref. A 3736 - totally unexpected find, but long sought after

    Ok, there are 3 or 4 other watches that could vie for spots 2 and 3, but the #1 position is taken
