    Top 10 watches, what is your favourite?

    Hi everyone,
    Surfing among various blogs and websites, I found an amazing Top 10 of watches and, with great pleasure, one of my favourite watches is in this list: Scafograf GMT THE BLACK SHEEP by Eberhard.
    What is your favourite model?
    Here is the article.

    The Grand Seiko by a big margin.

    Well, to be fair, it's a list of someone's Top 10 alternatives to the Rolex GMT Master.. Which explains why I like almost none of the models presented. The two exceptions are the Oris big crown calibre 114 and the Alpina Alpiner 4 GMT. All the others don't do anything for me.

    I like the Oris. I'm a sucker for big ol' arabic numerals. The Linde Wenderlin is pretty neat too.

    Yep, I'd easily pick the Grand Seiko SBGE201. Then again... I already liked and wanted that watch.

    It is a rather odd list of "top ten"--but limiting myself to that list, I would place the Grand Seiko first, the Oris second, and perhaps the Tag (yes, the Tag) third.

    I place little value in articles that have those corny, trite, and hackneyed Rolex nicknames in the first sentence.

    Just limited to the 10 on that list... I've always been kind of intrigued with trying a Dodane--the Type 23 flyback--so the Dodane GMT caught my eye, kind of Sinn 104-ish

    Re: Top 10 watches, what is your favourite?

    The grand seiko is one of my favorite watches in the market, GMT or not. So I'll go there.

    Haven't been a fan of the Omega when I've seen it. I don't love the white on the bezel.

    I actually really like the tag, and have since its release, but it is hefty.

    The oris is the most unique.
