    Your Opinion of Best Watch for Age of Wearer

    Everyone has their perceived ideal watch for the stages of our lives. You can only pick one for each.

    Here's mine:

    Pre-teen: cereal box watch
    Teens: Swatch
    20s: Tissot
    30s: Tag
    40s to 60s: Rolex
    60s and beyond: Patek

    What's yours?

    - Patek Philippe Calatrava ref 3919J cal 215PS
    - Vacheron Constantin Patrimony ref 31160/000J cal 1132.2 (based on Frederic Piguet 810 ebauche)
    - Audemars Piguet Royal Oak ref 56303SA (no-date version of 56175SA) cal 2612
    - Piaget ref 90802 cal 9P
    - Ulysse Nardin ref 4120-1 cal N10AA

    Why I love:
    - PP: Founded 1839, oldest family-owned watchmaker, most expensive watch ever sold at auction, at $24MM, is a PP
    - VC: Founded 1755, oldest watchmaker continually in existence, created most complicated mechanical watch ever made, with 57 horological complications
    - AP: Founded 1875, oldest watchmaker still owned by founding family, created world's first luxury sportwatch, the Royal Oak
    - Piaget: Founded 1874, created thinnest movement in 1957, the 9P, at 2mm thick
    - UN: Founded 1846, official marine chronometer supplier to US, UK, Japanese and Russian Navies

    Re: Your Opinion of Best Watch for Age of Wearer

    I'll base mine off what my projected path was... what it is now.. and what I hope to have collected by the time I am older. I'll try to be as realistic as possible, and not too terribly extravagant. I think the times are changing, and younger people are starting to truly appreciate the merits of fine horology. For reference, I'm 24, and my daily watch is a Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon 39.

    Pre-teen: Casio something or another
    Teen: Timex Weekender until I was 18, then picked up a Speedmaster after a summer of hard work tutoring math to kids
    20's: Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon 39
    30's: Vintage No Date Rolex Submariner
    40's-60's: Jaeger-Lecoultre Grande Reverso/ Patek Phillipe Calatrava
    60's and beyond: I'll probably be bankrupt by then from ^^^...

    Just for fun, here's a picture of my JLC MUT Moon today. Looking forward to everyone's comments!

    Re: Your Opinion of Best Watch for Age of Wearer

    Eighties and beyond:
    Some nice Citizen or Seiko with big, clear markers and hands; something solar powered so no problems with forgetting to wind or forgetting to move our wrist or finding someone to put in a new battery (we should only live so long) and after all, we're in Palm Springs or Scottsdale or somewhere warm with lots of Sun.and something rugged enough to survive the chaos at dinner at 4:30 or a wicked game of shuffleboard ...
