    Perfect watch Collection...

    My perfect collection would be:

    1. Ap royal oak blue dial - 41 mm - work watch
    2 portuguse automatic white dial - smart casual watch;
    3. Gmt master ii rolex - dress down/weekend/holiday watch
    4. Reverso tribute 1931 - dress watch.

    What do you think? Versatile enough?

    If it were me I'd switch the GMT II for a SUB. Two reasons:
    1. Setting the GMT complication every weekend?
    2. The GMT is too blingy with those PCLs

    Nice selection, otherwise! How close are you?

    My perfect 4-watch rotation would be:
    1. Patek Nautilus - for the work week.
    2. Rolex Polar Explorer II - my second daily to rotate, + rough activities on the weekend (swimming, hiking, etc) + travel watch.
    3. Sinn U1 - dive watch
    4. Jaeger LeCoultre - dress watch and occasional work watch.

    I'd have to sell a couple of piece and save a bit more before I could consider the Patek Nautilus. I'm not sure it's worth the 26K price tag either.

    Thanks for your comments. I think I should have the collection sorted by December:)!

    Funnily enough, I have the black explorer ii and sub but was thinking of getting rid of both and replacing with a gmt ii.

    I do like the explorer 2 but have found it sometimes difficult to read due to the extra hand. Is that your experience as well? I like there idea of a gmt hand and think the gmt 2 will be easier to read but it is too bling as well. Decisions!!!

    Though, haven't decided yet. I agree re the plc but it can be brushed.

    Hmm... I'd say my 216570 is by far the most legible watch I have. I dare say it's more legible than the black one, too, because all the hands are black (on white) as opposed to white gold (on black). The one thing about the Explorer II that I would change is the size. 2mm less and it would be completely perfect. Right now it's 99% perfect.

    Btw, which Royal Oak are we talking? 15300/15400 or 15202?

    I agree re the size.

    I've ordered an AP 15400 blue dial (42mm).

    It looks great. But to nit pick, the Portuguese would never figure into a grail list for me because it does not have an in-house movement, and at the price point IWC tries to get, it ought to have one. A Zenith El Primero or JLC would be far more appealing to me.

    Nice choices but I would probably replace the IWC with something else as well. Probably a GO Vintage Seventies or the Senator Chronograph.
