My current list of dream watches is as follows:

Rolex GMT Master II 116710BLNR
Jaeger LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph 2068570
Image

Omega Speedmaster Professional (Planning to buy this one in the next month)
Tudor Heritage Black Bay One 8)

Most of the above feel attainable, but one watch on my list isn't really :-(
Patek Philippe Complication 5146/1G-010

the one nice thing about dreaming about the omega triple date is that there are many similar watches that are significantly less expensive that you could acquire if the omega doesn't quite fit the budget.

I agree , this sample typicaly sells at around £400 and there are many more brands on the pre-owned market. I may be looking to purchase one of the less expensive brands Greg , the Omega version is expensive .

if you win the lottery, you could take a step up from even the omega with this (available recently for a cool $250k).

Not that it's an option right now anyway but think I have decided this one wouldn't be for me when the blue Omega PO titanium is probably the ultimate. Won't stop me trying one on though when I see one.

^^^ I think it's one of those colours that looks great in the right conditions - bright sunshinre, blue skies, sea etc... Probably no good in South Cheshire then.
