It is less than the Ahoi but still eyewatering compared to standard club. I think the new ones 37 with lug to lug 48.5. Then there's the new campus with is the same size as the club datum I think and a fair bit cheaper but the lugs might be too long for me. My current dream involves slimming the collection down and moving a few on but I'm not 100% yet I'd say about 90% there with my plans

The Sinn's nice but that's it really, I prefer the 556 m though but that might not be what your looking for or too similar to others you have

I love the hands - a little different. The only worry for me would be the lack of a second hand - i might love it, then again... i may not.

The Fortis is nice but not for me - too big and the lugs are... not right somehow.

The 556i M is a good shout although a great all rounder it possibly isn't dressy enough for what I want - or I think I want at this moment.

Tudor Black Bay 36.

Smaller size is perfect for me, clean and clear dial, first class materials throughout, top quality movement and looks awesome on either a vintage leather strap or bracelet.

Dreaming on still, but a semi-significant birthday coming up soon and a potential promotion at work now on the cards, could make dreams reality?

Searching around for a dress watch to rival the Sinn 1736 and found this.

Its a Longines 1969 (My birthyear) 36mm x 36mm x 9mm with a 64 hour power reserve. I like this - alot.

Developing a longing for a Rolex Milgauss. Am due a 'special' watch to wear for my next decade in a few years, I think this would be it.

It'll be a Grand Seiko Quartz with the champagne dial, because I have this obsession with Quartz HaQ at the moment

After buying the Pepsi version I can highly recommend them and if you choose the black bezel it's only £25 for a ceramic upgrade, they are great value for money.
