    Question AP, JLC or Patek for my ONE & ONLY ultra high-end sport watch?

    I'm looking for a watch that comes from one of the most respected houses in the industry. It has to be simple, strong, and timeless.

    My requirements:
    - 40mm+
    - stainless steel/white gold
    - date function

    With a budget of US$25,000 MAX, which of the following three should I save up for? I hope there will still be in production/available for sale in early 2011 at the earliest.

    1. AP Royal Oak




    2. JLC Master Compressor Diving GMT



    3. Patek Nautilus



    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Of those three, id take the JLC. But id also add an AP Royal Oak Offshore to the mix.

    Another line from JLC to consider would be the Amvox if you haven't already checked that out.

    Add the Vacheron Constantin Overseas to your list - it's an awesome watch.

    I voted for JLC.
    But, if I had a free choice, I would choose
    A JLC Master Compressor Diving Chrono.
    My second choice, if you beat me very hard, would be a VC Malte Chrono


    My only objection is, you wanted a "sports watch".
    I can not see myself using any watch in this price bracket during any sports activity. And it does not matter if it can take it or not. The VC has a low WR, but does it matter?

    Too subjective a poll. I personally don't care for any of the 3 if it were my dime, but each of those brands has watches I do love.
    All have great in-house movements.

    The Patek for sure. The unique porthole case and color just do it for me. Has a sporty feel --with a certain class and elegance that the AP and JLC lack. Just my opinion, of course.
