Although I don't like them all..there are some great pieces in that group.

Best of all time? ......subjective.

I've got one of them! How proud am I :lol:

Quite liked most of them to be honest, the JLC is lovely and strangely, the Pam is begining to weedle its way into my affections as well.

I'm not even going to bother looking...it will be a list compiled by some office junior consisting of random brands that he has heard of/googled/blagged a freebie.

I'm guessing it's 11 because its 2011 and magazines think that kind of correlation is clever.

Interesting if arbitrary choices. Like them all except the Tag Monaco, a really ugly watch, IMHO you understand. Even like the Braun but personally would go for a Max Bill in the minimalist stakes. But thanks for posting.

The only 2 I like are the Hamilton Khaki and Rolex Sub though only the Hamilton is realistically attainable at the mo..I generally dont pay much attn to fashion magazines 'watch' articles.....

They'd make a decent enough collection, perhaps a bit "mainstream", there's quite a few there I wouldn't mind having.
