I think this would sit quite nicely in your collection

Wow, quite a few suggestions put forward here so thanks to all those who took the time to search out a watch for me. I’m sure there must be someone out there who would want to wear that skeleton dial frost AP. I’m afraid I don’t know who that would be.....

In order to help me narrow down my selection I’m going to refer back to Steve’s opening post and this part in particular
Amor Vincit Omnia wrote: Sun Apr 24, 2022 10:33 am No other rules, but try to respect what you know about my tastes in watches (this is part of the game – how well do you know your forum friends?).
So I’m going to decide based on how well I think you have done with knowing what I like. I’m not going for something off piste that’s caught me eye (I’m looking at the Moser flyback chrono here) nice choice.

I did put some thought into this before being chosen to take part and I pre-selected two watches that I feel reflect my tastes based on what I’ve posted recently. If anyone would have picked these it would have been game over. They were an IWC perpetual calendar in the pilot range, not the Portuguese. (I was flexible on colour) or the IWC big pilot petit prince monopusher chronograph.

Amazingly, Bjorn has somehow merged these into one watch and come so close to perfection that it’s uncanny. Only the gold case would put me off (Steve was right with that comment). Therefore I’m going to have to choose this as the winner.

However, as Bjorn has already won, the rule is that I must choose someone else to have a lottery watch chosen. So going back to the brief quoted above and it has to be Guy with the IWC pilot chronograph. I’d just need to swap out that aquamarine strap first.

Well done everyone and it’s now over to you all to choose Guy a watch.

Now Guy likes his watches big and he likes a tool watch, so there’s no 36mm polished gold dress watch here.

He has such a large and varied collection it’s also difficult to pin down a preferred style. However the two most prized watches he owns are both pilot chronographs in his Breguet and the CW monopusher pilot bought to commemorate someone special.

Therefore I’m going big and going pilot chronograph with this El Primero powered 45mm Zenith.

Or alternatively the IWC big pilot monopusher I had in mind for myself.

In keeping with the large watch and chronograph theme, I will try introducing Guy to one of my favourite brands – as he knows!

The Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronograph, 43mm, also incorporates an annual calendar.

I could see Guy rocking something like this 44mm flying tourbillon from AP

Odd, I thought I'd posted a response for Iain :?

For Guy, I'll stick with the chrono theme, but something a bit left field.

I'm just catching up with this thread and am 'chuffing to bits' to have been selected for the next round. Thank you Iain.

I see that I already have a worthy selection to consider, including several that will require some research before making my decision.

I look forward to that over the next few days.

Guy

Sorry, I did say I’d wait for a day or two, but a flurry entries arrived by last night so I made a selection.

While too late to be judged, I’d still be interested to know what your choice was.

Like Ryan I didn’t get around to posting in time for Iain.

I was going to post this one. :)

It also seems eminently suitable for Guy, so I will also go with it as my first suggestion for Guy as well.

The UN I posted above is an earlier version. You could have the 44 mm Marine Torpilleur Annual Chronograph. Also available in white.

My second selection for Guy is this 44mm beauty, from an underrated brand.
