Fortunately/unfortunately I'm skint at the mo, so need to be selling rather than buying (or dreaming of buying) watches at the moment.

Fortunately/unfortunately that doesn't seem to be stopping me dreaming. In fact I'm at almost-pulling-the-trigger stage on a watch today. I guess that's addiction for you.

Erm.... chronograph with GMT function (not just 24-hour repeater).

I'm looking at Sinn, Omega, Chopard, possibly Breitling and looking for others to consider. I'm not looking at Rolex, Invicta or anything digital or battery operated.

It might be older - such as an Omega Flightmaster, it might be newer - such as the current Sinn range.

I'm okay with deep case sizes. I'd consider commissioning the swapping the movement out of a 7750 chrono and transplanting a 7754 movement.

Only one option for me in that category - Bremont Worldtimer ALT1-WT. Stunning watch in my opinion.

I do like the new blue version. I tried on the original releases of both the CC and the simple three hander. I liked the size and shape of the case and thought it looked less formal than typical VC dress watches. A good thing from my perspective.

However the one I prefer is the day date, which I didn’t get to try on at the time.
