    Off Topic post One watch for the rest of your life - You have to choose!

    Ok, you have to give up all of your watches from your current collection except one, but here is the catch, you cannot buy another watch ever again! The one you choose will be the only you will ever own, so which one will you choose from your current stable?!

    For me, it is a very close call between my Armida A1 and my PRS-68, and right now I would have to say the PRS-68 just edges it,

    If it is from my collection, it is my Green bezeled Oris Aquis. The bracelet and rubber strap change the look so drastically.
    If it is from my want list, it is the Planet Ocean 8500 cal with the Orange numerals. One day....

    For me it would have to be my Seamaster Professional.
    If it was from my wish list it would be a Speedmaster professional, the simple moon landing version.

    Close call between Tuna and my SMP. My brain says SMP but my heart says Tuna.

    From my current collection I would have to say the rolex op date, mainly for the sentimental value it has in my life

    Well, let me qualify this by saying I'm glad I don't have to actually make this decision, I'm WAY to flip-floppy. BUT, I can say this - all things considered, for me the choice would be relatively simple...


    a) Functionality - I dive, but only recreationally, so the truth is anything easily readable underwater with a reliable water resistance down to at least 150ft would actually suffice in a pinch, I'd miss a rotating bezel, but I could live (literally) without.

    b) I travel more than I dive (though those two activities do overlap from time to time)

    c) I like bracelets far more than straps and I'm picky about bracelets that I have to wear regularly, it has to be attractive and comfortable

    d) Dress code - I wear mostly casual clothing, but a 'one watch' would also have to be able to work with a suit or tux too when occasion calls for.

    e) Size - I've grown quite accustomed to larger and 'heftier' dive watches, so I'd have a hard time sizing down too far, but a watch that'd fit all occasions (including sliding nicely under a cuff) would entice me down a bit, but not so far as to feel 'too small' for my personal tastes.

    e) dependability - 'one watch' would have to be reliable.

    f) Lume. Good lume.

    g) Heritage - I love heritage. To me, that means something.



    so, my choice - like I said, for me pretty easy... 42mm Exp. II - black dial. I don't currently own one, but if I had to commit to one - this'd be it.
