    Back from the dead. Which watch would you most like to see re-issued and why?

    Re-issues of classic timepieces are common (TAG seem to be doing nothing else these days), but which watch would you most like to see back on the shelves - even if just for a short run?

    For me it would probably be a 'Newman' style Daytona. Steel case, black subdials. No ceramics, white gold or cheesy diamond encrustations - just the classic sports cosmograph.

    Second choice would be a '707' GMT version of the Hamilton Pan Europ. Boy that would be cool.

    An Omega Railmaster CK 2914 re-issue would be the perfect fit for the new 8400 caliber. Bring on those magnets!

    100% and that's a great choice, mostly because Seiko don't go for re-issues. There are many 60's/70's divers that could be brought back. There's a huge market for homages and the classic Rolex Sub still sells well, so the demand is clearly there.

    Once upon a time Seikos did datefree manuals. They're great. I would love to have the option of buying one younger than myself

    I agree about the Daytona. I really don't like the modern ones. A couple I'd like to see relaunched in their original form:

    $200.00 Rolex GMT and Submariner....Why? Because it's $200.00 GMT's and Sub's.

    If Oris were to re-issue the Carlos Coste Nemo I could buy one. That a plenty good enough reason.
