    What's my next watch?

    Looking for some ideas. I've been thinking SS Daytona (black) or maybe something completely different.

    *My Sinn U1 is missing from this pic, sorry. It was in my dive bag ready for the next day.

    Current Collection: Sinn U1; Omega Speedmaster 3570.50; Seiko SARB033; Casio PRW-3000-1A, G-5600A-7DR; Jaeger Le-Coultre Reverso Grande Taille; Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical ref. H69429931; A. Lange & Sőhne 1815 UP/DOWN; Swatch Sistem51, and some others...

    A chrono makes sense based on your current collection. Rolex, Omega, Zenith and Tag would be where I would concentrate my search, again based on your collection. The Daytona is always a good choice and fortunately don't command the premium they did a few years ago. I am a bigger fan of the white Daytonas but that is just a purely subjective issue.

    Chrono seems like a good option, please accept this as the obligatory Speedy Pro response to this thread

    I like the white Daytona too, but I've already got my white SS sports watch covered with the Explorer II. The black looks dressier, white sportier.

    To qualify things a bit, I'm looking for something in between sports and dress. A watch that can go either way. The SubLV is great for weekends and as a party piece, but sometimes a black SS piece just seems to be a better fit. I was originally thinking 5711 or 15202, but 1) I'm not sure I want to spend that much and 2) I think I want a chrono. Plus I like how rugged Rolex sports watches are.

    EDIT: and I prefer the fit of the Daytona over the Speedy. Same with the VC Overseas. I just find most watches too big.

    It is - my lust for that JLC is well documented. Take a better picture though - really!

    I'm going to suggest the LE Zenith El Primero 410, if still available. Beautiful watch with a sunburst gray dial. (42mm though). Would post a pic but I'm on my iPad right now!

    What a beautiful, well-rounded and complete collection you have! Congratulations.

    Why not another JLC? Have a look at their Master Compressor and Master Control lines. Perhaps a Zenith El Premiero?
