Speedmaster Professional. The older Pie Pan Constellations are beautiful watches as well. Current models are cool (I like the 38.5mm AT) but I think they need to slow down with the eleventy-seven different versions of all their models. IMO, it dilutes the brand a bit.
It would have to be the Speedmaster Professional (Moonwatch)...hands down.
The Speedmaster was a grail of mine for 25 years. I first lusted after it as a kid. I would go to the mall with my parents and stare at it through the display window of the jewelry store.
I loved it's looks, it's origins in auto racing, and eventually it's connection with NASA and it's many trips into space.
At the age of 20 I decided that one day I would have one, but financially it was way beyond me at that time.
After years of scrimping and saving, at the age of 45, I had finally saved up enough money to buy my Speedmaster.
Now, after about 5 years of guardianship, the love affair is still very much alive. I still find myself mezmorized by its beauty. It will be with me until the day I die, and then it will get passed on to one of my nieces.

What a great story René!
Speedy for me too. CK2998, Moonwatch, ST1 and Tintin being some of my favs. Don’t own any of them unfortunately
My 1956 Seamaster and 1957 Constellation are not going anywhere, but most days I wear a PO8900.
I love my Speedy 145.022 from the early 80's, but this Seamaster Swiss Boutique LE with gradient fumé dial is super cool if you like the Mad Men style.
Not even a question for me. 80's Baby, grew up with Goldeneye on N64 and the movie...yeah Omega SMP 300 Diver all the way
The latest from Q Branch.
Uncle Renee? Hey it’s your long lost niece Michelle... Just kidding, My Speedy Pro is my fav, with my 2254.50 a close runner up!
Keep on Rockin in the Free World!
Cal 1120 sword hands diver. In my case the 2255.80 "Electric Blue". I also have a soft spot for the Dynamic III and the Titane Chronograph. Then again, I tend to like the less mainstream models. Speedies (apart from the roulette dial auto) don't appeal to me.
