Default Ok, whats your current favorite watch?

I know everyone of us on this Watch Freek forum fall in and out of love for certain watches. Now which one is your current love, and how long to you think that will last??

Here's my current favorite, fell in love with it when I first purchased it, but the spectacular bracelet on it is a little heavy (solid links and a milled clasp), so I threw it on a leather strap, and the love kind of faded to the point I was going to flip it.

Then put it on mesh and it on mesh and it got a reprieve.

Now I have put it on a Bond Nato, and I am absolutely in love again. It looks sharp, have gotten several comments on it, and it is super comfortable. Good time keeper also, running at a consistent +2 seconds a day.

That's my current favorite.
Please send it back when you're through with it.
But seriously, I find a new favorite every time I open the watch box. I guess that's why I'd never be satisfied with only two or three watches.

Every time I start to think I like another one better, I put this on and it goes right back to the top.

That's an easy question to ask but hard to answer. But it must be among the watches I tend to wear more often. In terms of build quality, attention to detail and interpretation of an original design, the CREPAS L'océan and the Helson Turtle are among the top of my collection. But it's too hard to chose.

My current favourite is my Steinhart Ocean 1 premium. I love looking at it. Wears real nice. Has nice weight to it.

It would have to be my Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer.

Just love the classic look of the dial, the blued hands, the case design and old-fashioned wire lugs, it's the perfect size for me, and WOW has it been accurate!!!! Easily within COSC since it first came home in July.

It's made me an even bigger believer in Hamilton!

Talk about falling in and out of love. Didn't you try to sell this watch on here awhile ago ? If I recall, no takers at $1300. I like that Longines you have better.

My favorite for the past year is my Orient Blue Ray. Not an expensive watch but reliable (+6 secs/day), comfortable and nice looking. I put it on a Jubilee bracelet because it's flexible and comfortable.

My favorite watch is always the one I happen to be wearing, but due to its looks and comfort, the one I seem to wear most of all is the SMP 2255.80.

I've been into this one lately. Even though I don't like black watches or square cases.

Gotta hand it to you and toecutter. Eterna is a KEEPER!
My fave watch is the one I have on my wrist each day.
But being specific, Bulova 98B320 HF quartz is my fave.
Tomorrow it might be my EcoZilla, I'm fickle!!!
