    "Perfection" for just $10 a day

    $3,650.
    Not a trivial sum but still not really madly out of reach for the majority of us if we really wanted to.
    $3,650 is what you would get if you put just $10 a day for a year.
    The WatchSnob once said that there are no worthwhile watches between $1,000 and $3,000 dollars.

    The game is this:
    name 5 watches in 5 categories of your choice that are just sublime. Watches that stand above the crowd for that money.
    The prices are Street Price in USD.
    The watches should be new.
    Examples of Categories: Dress, Tool, Daily, Diver, Chronograph.

    What would you get for $10 a day? You can spend less but you cannot exceed the ceiling.

    Not really an answer, but a used 14060 can be had for that amount, especially head only. That's what I'm going for this year.

    According to my single pals in L.A., you can get perfection for $150 for an hour. Usually on Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica. But I digress.

    As far as the watches:

    The Best Dress Watch Not Named Seiko Cocktail Time: Eterna KonTiki Date (Around $1,200)
    Because We All Should Have a Blue Dial Watch: Grand Seiko SBGX065 ($1,600)
    The Nicest Christopher Ward Watch Out There: Christopher Ward C900 World Timer ($1,375 new)
    Because We All Want to Be Bond, James Bond: Omega Aqua-Terra ($1,700 to $3,600)
    Since We All Need Spring Drive in Our Lives: Grand Seiko SBGA027 ($1,700 to $3,000)

    Santa Monica… of course. That's on my list of places to never visit again.

    Well, Santa Monica is a nice part of the world. Too many faux progressives and all. But it does have its charms. Now Beverly Hills? Yes, not worth spending much time in unless you're on your way to the rest of the Westside of L.A.
