    1 watch under 50k?

    The whole one watch philosophy is scary amongst us for sure, but in an apocalyptic situation where you could only have one watch with a 50k price limit what would you buy? No selling!

    If it's the actual apocalypse, a G-shock Rangeman, with all the multi-function capabilities.

    Otherwise, a nice 40mm-42mm diver of some sort would fit the bill.

    I really like the IWC Big Pilot.

    Knock 2 zeroes off.

    In an apocalyptic situation, it's a solar G-Shock. Pick whichever model floats your boat, it doesn't matter. There is no second place. Durable and maintenance-free. The one thing I'd do is get the band taken off, and a firm mounting set up on the back to use it as a clip or pocket watch.

    Re: 1 watch under 50k?

    OP had to be using the word "apocalyptic" to mean "crazy circumstance in which you only get one watch but get 50k to spend" rather than "which 50k watch would you soldier through the literal apocalypse with"... right?

    I'd actually be very tempted to go with the BLRO, but would want something that dresses up a bit better too. But then most watches that I think dress up well just don't cut it for everyday duty. I'd be tempted to pick a JLC Duometre or an ALS but could never wear those daily... This is hard...

    Edit: No, it isn't. I'm going with an AP RO in stainless and buying a leather and rubber strap to go with it.

    Edit: by apocalyptic situation, I don't mean if the actual apocalypse were taking place. I mean in the watch nerd apocalyptic scenario where you were forced to only own one watch. With that being said, I think I'd have to take a Patek 5396

    Thank you Uberdave, this is what is meant by apocalyptic scenario. And I just explained it myself in the post above this
