this week i've been thinking a lot about watches i could actually wear, rather than just watches i love the look of. i can push limits of size (and do with my C11), but i wondered what was around at a more functional level - think a watch that i could wear when i'm off walking and camping, and add in a quick swim in a burn up in the highlands somewhere. oh - and i also like things a little different too..... here's this week's 36mm chocolate dial day dream:

When do we not daydream.....

These are currently on the dream list or radar (whichever you prefer)

First Watch in Space

38.5mm Blue AT
Image

Omega PO 42mm
Image

Black Bay Blue
Image

and a couple of affordable options that are also pretty unique looking:

Crepas L'Ocean 1200
Image

G.Gerlach Sokol 1000
Image

As you can see Omega is still dominating my mind and the desire for a Blue dialled watch is also high.

Ahhhhhh, the dream. :thumbup:

My version of a birth year watch and one I covet. But it's pricey and rare.

Is it the inside face of the deployment clasp?

To be honest, although I would like a Tudor Black Bay I would not be overly disappointed were I not to purchase another watch.

I've said it before, I've been happy with what I have for the last 18 months and wouldn't mind carrying on that way.

I am not daydreaming about any watches either. I haven't bought one since July, though I might soon have a vintage Kon-tiki (hopefully) and the FLE is dead in the water for me.

My current daydream features a tropical beach with warm seas, cold drinks and a total absence of...
