C’mon, folks. Bjørn needs a bit more choice here. Let’s get searching! :D

With multiple Reversos in the stable, Bjorn obviously has a thing for rectangular watches, so I'll stay with that theme.
Change of manufacture though; I'll go with the platinum ALS Cabaret Tourbillon ...

I'm probably on a hiding to nothing with my suggestion as Neil (@nbg) has done his research remarkably well with the multi-complication JLC thingamabob, and the several rectangular / Reverso watches are right up Bjorn's street BUT I feel he ought to get something different that doesn't duplicate anything in his current collection.

My selection is therefore Rose Gold (there is a White Gold option but that looks too much like steel to me), with an historic timekeeping connection, from my personal 'Brand of the moment';-

One more suggestion. A one off PP 5270T-010 perpetual Calendar Chronograph in Titanium.

The watch will be auctioned in November, as part of the biannual Children Action Gala.

An ideal opportunity for our newly minted lottery winner to acquire a unique watch and support a worthwhile charity.

I’m going to try and help Bjorn decide by adding a second suggestion for him in addition to my reverso one above.

This may provoke one of two responses, he will either realise that the suggestions above are as good as they are going to get. Or it will frighten him into a choice before anyone else suggests something worse…..

My second offering is therefore this ‘little’ beauty.

First of all, sorry for the prolonged absence. I’ve been away for work most of the week, and even evenings have been busy.

How very gratifying to win, thanks Neil. Thank you all for the brilliant suggestions! Iain’s second offering above is off piste, but one should keep an open mind. But thankfully my mind is not that open!

Of course anything high end from JLC, Reverso or otherwise, is a winner in my book. The one Neil suggests is mouthwateringly stunning, but he has already won, so that is out.

Perhaps strangely, Patek very rarely moves me. I mean, the 3940 is great, but most of their watches leave me cold.

The Sky Dweller is actually my least favourite Rolex, though many rate it highly. The CvdK is whimsical and beautiful, but not my cup of tea.

The Lange Cabaret is a great watch, but there is something too Germanic about it. The Bremont is beautiful, and actually something I could consider. The Loomes is also beautiful, but Roman numerals is not my thing. Unless on a Cali dial.

Ian’s first effort, the mindblowing 90th Anniversay Reverso should be/is an obvious winner, but it is simply too much to own. Even as a game. It is a museum piece, and I would not be comfortable having it - much less wearing it. So I feel I must choose another entry.

I’ve been a fan of FP Journe for a long time, so the winner is Stephen and the Chronometre Bleu! A very wearable watch, Tantalum case, solid rose gold movement and that blue dial!
