Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Grande Date, Grand Reverso Duo, and possibly one of the other Reverso models, I have to wait until I've seen the different models to choose. Also considering Panerai.
I do like the Ball watches with their great Lume, I do find myself looking at my Sub at night but the lume isn't bright enough to read.

I've taken a liking to square/rectangle models, and I've also found that I also like manual wind watches. At first, I only was considering automatics, but I have widened my scope of possibilities.

It's amazing how many options are opened up for you when you allow manual wind to enter the equation. Some of the most beautiful or complicated watches are manual wind.

Agreed.

Most of the amazing, intense, custom skeleton watches are manual wind, and the automatic Reversos (Squadras) I think will be too thick for my taste.

Here's a cool one I've drooled over for a long time. http://www.watchbuys.com/store/pc/Jo...eton-17p53.htm

And another http://www.watchbuys.com/store/pc/St...uty-17p913.htm

I like the latter one, but I tend to like things a little more risky.

I also like the second one, maybe it's the pic, but the brown guilloche on the first one looks funny. The second watch looks way classy.

I'm going to say the brown guilloche makes it look 80's vintage. You know those light brown boats you see from the 80s? just don't look like they aged well.

I'm too lazy to go through the whole thread. Any reputable places to get an Omega? I've looked online and I worry about getting scammed. What sites do you use?

I am fascinated by tourbillons, but they are way out of my price range.
