    Which watch is the best deal of yr collection?

    I saw a lot of thread regarding the best watch to buy or most reasonable price watchwith great quality to get. But its quite subjective with so many opinion.

    Why not have a best deal u ever get for yr own watch collection?

    I believe many of u have wide range of watch collection. Sure they will be one that u think is yr best buy. Even the most expensive watch u ever paid can be a great deal if u deem so.

    State yr watch, state yr reason why it is the best deal u get?

    hmm...i think I consider my Debaufre my best deal so far. It was my first hacking movement, it winds like a dream, and I'm super pleased with the quality. Having bought it second hand, it made it even a better deal than new. If there weren't so many different brands to lust after I'm sure I'd already have another Debaufre.

    I think it's hard to beat alpha for value. Sure the band sucks and the case is a bit light but it's kept pretty decent accuracy and it looks nice all for $60.

    My MM power reserve - $55 shipped from China.

    The power reserve comes in REAL handy because my winder is flaky.

    If the power starts to go down, then about half way through, I just reset my winder and I am good.

    I do not wear it much though.

    I got a Zenith EP Sport HW new (display piece) at an AD with warranty for about $2k or so (MSRP was about $5k), I think that was probably my best deal. Runner up might be the Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece RDM, new from AD for $1.3k, MSRP was about $4.2k.

    My Lucien Piccard - seashark. I purchased it 47 years ago and I wear
    it almost daily. Although I paid $93.50 in redeemable Dollars, you could say
    it was a bargain.

    At the moment, I'd have to say the Debaufre 48mm Nav-B that's currently winging it's way to me. $350 for the watch, display case, extra strap and strap changing tool. Pretty good deal.

    I've also had quite a few added to my collection by enabling wife. They're all a pretty good deal since I didn't have to pay a dime for them. They mystically showed up for birthdays, christmas, anniversaries, etc. So far she's gotten me an Aquanautic King Cuda, Marathon JSAR, Boschett Cave Dweller, Seiko diver (model escapes me at the moment), and about 10 other affordables.

    For me it would have to be two...

    First... This one was under $100, a no-brainer
    Invicta Wakesetter


    Second... I had this same watch but traded it for a Riedenschild SwiHanic. I paid almost $400 back then. A few months ago I was browsing one of the shopping channels one weekend when I came upon this at a ridiculous, stupid price of under $200. Come to find out, they had a bad computer glitch that screwed up big time. The WIS Gods must have been looking out for me... This is a borrowed pic.

    Best deal?
    I think the WW2 Laco B-uhr. I bought it for about 1/3 of the value.
