Dream collection, hmmm,
Various Rolex Subs,
Omega Speedmaster pre-moon
JLC Grande Reverso
Hublot Big Bang
Royal Oak Jumbo or Offshore
Patek Nautilus
Patek Calatrava
JLC Master Compressor Navy Seals GMT Chrono
IWC Portugese
Panerai (not sure what model, they all kind of look the same to me-not so hot on P any more)
When I'm a millionaire it would be cool to have a tourbillon of some sort.
There's also some cool skeleton watches that look like they'd be fun, Tourby, and some German hand made ones-very cool.

The wish list is endless. There are just so many bitchin watches I'd love to own. They're like cars.
Thanks, I love it. Needs more wrist time... Been wearing the Nomos a lot lately (might be because I was in a different time zone for a bit and wore my rouge reverso a lot over Christmas). Would definitely recommend any JLC at this point, I have 3 JLC watches and one more watch with a JLC movement, and they all make me very happy.

By looking at your list I can definitely tell you've been researching watches endlessly for a while now Would be awesome to have a pre-moon speed master! I would handle it like it was made of gold and be always scared of it Seems you're liking the Gerald Genta designs a bit
