    What's the best PVD watch?

    I love the PVD...I know all the arguments about scratching etc...but who cares...to me it is just bad a$$!!

    My favorite (and grail) is the Breitling Skyland Avenger Blacksteel. I just wish they had a matching bracelet...(Pic stolen fromy Davey Vermeek-Thanks!)



    My next favorite is the Sinn 856 UTC (pic stolen from videocrew-thanks!)



    What are your favorites?

    Sinn 857 UTC is one of my favourite. Just bought one last week and awaiting it's arrival:

    My ultimate PVD would probably be this though:

    Yes, that is a rotating bezel. Chrono, date, gmt, and rotating bezel = superior functionality. Not to mention the special technology Sinn puts into these watches (anti-magnetic, tegimented steel, etc).

    Does DRASS fit in the same boat as PVD to you? Should be even more durable...

    Assuming you mean all black watches I would avoid the pvd and get a ceramic piece like the Panerai 292 or a composit piece like the Panerai 339. I like PVD on inexpensive watches but not on pricey pieces because as you stated they scratch.
