    Challenge: Check all my boxes in only three watches

    I count myself among the 'less is more' crowd. As such I'm limiting my collection to three watches. I really enjoyed the recent thread by another member in which he whittled his collection down to just three watches that he felt covered all of his needs; I'd just rather start from zero and end at three.

    So, here's my challenge to the forum community: I've already got one watch (GO Senator Observer). What should my other two be?

    Guidelines(each item below must be found on at least one of the watches)
    • Origin: I want at least one Swiss watch, prefer not to have two German watches
    • Movement: Automatic or manual (or Spring Drive if you're going to suggest Grand Seiko); prefer in-house
    • Complications: Moon phase, chronograph (bonus points for a perpetual or annual calendar)
    • Uses: At least one watch must be water resistant to 10+ ATM, one should be elegant enough to dress up the other to dress down
    • Budget: $20,000 maximum (remember, that has to buy two watches)
    • Bracelet: I'd prefer all watches to at least have the option to be worn on leather/rubber/synthetic


    Obviously I have my own ideas, but I look forward to seeing yours.

    Very strong submission. I actually hadn't considered the '57 Speedmaster (I had been focused on the 3750.50 or newer variant), so thanks for that. And the MUT Moon is among my favorite moon phase watches. I really want one of my three to be a JLC, too.

    Perhaps I should have dropped my 'short list' from my signature before posting this thread, though. I was hoping for some more suggestions that would shake up my thought process.

    The chrono,in house and strap options can be fulfilled with a Panerai..maybe 213 (rattrapante)/275 (8 days monopulsante)/524 (3 days auto flyback) I do know 275 and 524 has in house movt)

    Moonphase...JLC MUT moon

    I think both will be less than 20k

    I've got this strange love/hate thing with the Sub. I think they're stunning and I want one but also I don't want one. Can't explain it. Probably have to go try one on at some point.
