Default Which is your favorite?

We all have that one watch that we reach for more often than not. You know, the one that gets the most wrist time and is your favorite watch. For me it isn't my most expensive watch (not even in the top 5), but it seems to get a lot of use and is the one watch that I will reach for more often than not. It is my Aegir CD-2 DLC.



It is my favorite because it tends to be the watch that can be worn in the most situations and it is very flexible. In addition:
  1. It is very unique. It is a custom watch and there is only one CD-2 that has a DLC finish, as far as I am aware.
  2. It looks great on many different styles and colors of straps. This helps it work in many different situations. From IsoFrane to custom leather to canvas to exotic skins...they all look great on it!
  3. It's size is perfect IMO. At 42mm, it fits my wrist perfectly and it is not too long.
  4. The quality is FANTASTIC. The fit and finish are comparable to "high end luxury" divers.
Well...that is my favorite, what is yours? Please limit to ONLY one WATCH (Got that Arnie and George) !

Easy for me since I only own one watch at a time. It's my Seawolf Avenger, perfect for all aspects of my life. It's rugged for my outdoor play. It's perfect for work-timing everything from tests I have my clients perform to timing ADL tasks. I can dress it up for formal wear with the steel bracelet or down with a custom leather strap for casual weekends.

The watch that has it all. Swiss automatic chronograph (Lemania 5100,) German build quality, decent WR and it went into friggin' space!

Right now this one. I'm sure it will change.
Great design, wears really well on the wrist, excellent lume, great strap watch to change up looks.

VERY tough call for me since I have taken my collection SO FAR DOWN to only a few watches and all ones I really really wanted. My answer could have been a toss up between my Breitling and this one, but in the end has been my favorite for a long long long time.

New picture taken today ..... Oris TT1 Diver Small Seconds Date 47mm model

Recently, it has been my Sinn.

* This is the most ideally proportionate watch in the 44mm case and the "easiest" to wear, especially for a 6.75" wrist size.
* My only domed sapphire crystal which is pretty cool.
* A superb casual and daily wear watch. I love to wear it with jeans, khaki chino pants and cargo shorts.
* If I put on its matching bracelet or a nice dress leather strap, this Sinn could probably pull off a dressy evening.
* I just love the dial markers and the unique hand set.
* The bezel action is just remarkable and by far the best I have "handled".

Subject to change at a whim. This has been my goto the past month that I have owned it. Disclaimer, I have purchased 1 watch since and 4 the month or two prior. I am infatuated with this watch.

My H2O Orca is my favorite at the moment. Love the mesh and it goes well with leather.

If I had to scale down my collection to one, this one would stay.

Wow, I'm surprised by your choice. You have a killer collection to choose from. I was tempted to buy one of these in the past. Would love to hear why you like it so much. Great looking watch for sure. Plus I'm partial to Breitling.
