    Thumbs Up A Blank Check One Watch What Would You Buy?

    Hello Wus members
    Heres a hypothetical for. Say you were given a blank check and had infinite funds. Now you have to buy one watch and only one. What one would you buy???


    For me it's the Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon

    A Patek - don't know which model, but I'm sure I would figure it out fairly quickly.

    That's a ridiculous number of stones.

    Maybe a Royal Oak.

    Based on my lifestyle, something sporty. A PP Nautilus comes to mind first but I would get raped when I had to service it. So, maybe a Rolex Yachtmaster with the blue dial. Servicing that wouldn't be as bad as the PP.

    IWC Big Pilot "Le Petit Prince", just 1 out of 270

    Because I love pilot watches and "The Little Prince". Look at him in the moonphase, and on the rotor - so adorable!

    But with unlimited funds and if I'm feeling really extravagant:

    Probably something ridiculous, like the Marie Antionette.

    Then I would sell it for a lot of money, even if that means the watch was undervalued, and buy all kinds of stuff worth owning. Not just watches either.
