My wife's cousin (former VP of J.P. Morgan) died unexpectedly and left a sizable chunk of money to be divided by the Estate Manager amongst my wife's 7 cousins and her.

Comes in around $75K of giggle money apiece!

I have 82 with another on the way. I understand your conundrum. But I think it's a good one to have...

You asked a tough question. Here are two choices. If you are willing to wait an entire year while it's being built, for simple elegance my favorite is the Islandus 44mm by JS Watch Co in Reykjavik, Iceland. That is a conversation piece.

https://www.jswatch.com/islandus

For fun look at Lum-Tec watches. I like the V-series.

Sorry 1st one is a no go for me, I don't like the dainty hand dress watches.

The second one wouldn't do since it's affordable to me, I want to drop some larger coin than that. Still leaning towards an Omega, but interested in some Grand Seiko's now a well!

Would like to see this No-Date 43mm Seamaster 300 Titanium as well.

You could up your game and go for the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic. Of course it is about 1.5 times more. But man, a lust worthy grail.
