I know he's a fan, so I'll go with the Czapek 'Frozen Star' LE. Especially with the more recently released 38.5mm case size ...

^^^ Off to a flyer gents. Four out of four that I really like. :thumbup:

Add a dive watch, GMT and a Chronograph, that would make a magnificent seven. :)

Keep the guesses coming folk. I have probably posted enough drivel in the “dreaming” thread over the years, to give an idea of the stuff I like.

Neil has put a few in the dreaming thread recently that have led me down this avenue. Zenith has been mentioned a couple of times, an integrated bracelet seems to also have been a recent preference on there. I’m going with this rather special Zenith.

This won’t be easy. :)

How big was the imaginary lottery win? Enough to buy a couple of watches… :?

Well that was hard to choose, from a whole host of excellent choices.

The Czapek was a very strong contender, a style that I really like. I would certainly take it any day of the week over a straight three hander Nautilus, Royal Oak or Overseas.

The Vanta black is very cool, but I would pick one of the funky dial colours in preference.

However I don’t have a complicated watch and would be unlikely to get a high end one, unless I won the lottery…

I like the ALS, but at 42mm probably too big for me. The PP looks a bit busy compared to some of their other grand complications and I am not totally convinced about the colour.

Now I do like a Reverso. :thumbup:

And AVO said that I can only choose one.

With that in mind I will go for Bjorn’s suggestion of the Reverso Tribute Tourbillon Duoface in Platinum.

Two watches for the price of one. :)

Here is the main face.

Now folk it’s time to choose a lottery win watch for Bjorn.

Well if it’s Bjorn then it’s got to be a reverso and it’s got to be this

My immediate thought for Bjorn was for a moonphase, but I then extended that to a perpetual calendar, for someone I believe appreciates the subject of time as much as the subject of watches.

I’ll continue the theme of Bjørn’s astronaut training with a CvdK Orion.

With relatively few participants, we are getting to the point where it would be easy for the winner to have featured already. In that case, by all means declare your winner but pick someone who hasn’t had a go yet. :D
