my top 5 fav attainable brands: Seiko (including GS and Credor), IWC, JLC Omega, Rolex.
followup 3/5 watch collection:
1) Glashutte Original Panomatic Lunar (saw one for $5K on used market)
2) 1960s Citizen Chronomaster (replaces my vintage GS)
3) Habring2 Jump Second Pilot
4) Oris Divers Sixty Five (non rolex and tudor diver. not a Tudor snowflake hand fan)
5) Universal Genève Polerouter (black dial with date)
