    Question Top 5 Watches you always dream of buying.

    Hello all Welcome to this post..!

    This thread is all about your dream watches you would like to buy if money was no problem.
    I know we all love to buy royal luxury watches but due to our budget we couldn't do so but If money was no problem which 5 watches you will buy for yourself in 2020.
    Let's talk about it here.

    Well if money wasn’t an issue I’d have to go for the Paul Newman Daytona (because why not), an EP120, a Nautilus, Greubel Forsey GMT and probably an AP Royal Oak.

    Good to see another convert to the ways of the GF GMT. I've been lucky enough to try one on on a few occasions and it gets me every time. The other 4 watches for me (Bremont excluded) are:

    MB&F HM4
    Greubel Forsey Quadruple Torubillion
    RM 035-01 'Baby Rafa'
    AP Royal Oak Offshore Diver (the only one of this list that I MAY be able to get one day - maybe when I retire!)

    For a bit of fun, I've just added up the (rough) cost of the 5 watches: £1.3million. Anyone got a spare lotto ticket..?

    I am very jealous I’d love to see one in person let alone try one on! However very nice choices and I think mine totals to around £18.2 million due to the PN Daytona

    I'm curious, what is it about the AP that appeals as a 'dream' watch. I like them but still see them as fairly ordinary from a design perspective which is not something I would want in an expensive watch.

    I'll try and avoid getting drawn into the Rolex conversation as that is one watch brand that I have just never seen the appeal in. I can't knock their marketing as they've created an incredible demand for something that in my view is nothing particularly special when compared to other watches at the same price point.

    I don't deny it being a fairly ordinary looking watch, but the finish and quality is exemplary - from the dial, to the case design and shape, to the movement (with engraved bridges and finished with a 22-carat gold rotor.)

    On the subject of the design though, in my opinion the AP design is somewhat iconic. It's a small slice of Gérald Genta magic and my inner watchnerd loves that - hence it making the list.

    I agree - their marketing machine is a thing of immense power, and their market tactics somewhat intriguing. Just look up the recently exposed dealings with AD's and the grey market in (if I recall) Hong-Kong. Staggering!

    A very difficult decision as without limits there are so many to choose from. I do prefer a watch that I can sensibly wear which removes a lot of the bigger watch options such as Jacob & Co.

    I really like Vacheron Constantin and their Metiers d'Art watches. Then possibly a Breguet Tourbilllon. I like the Hublot LaFerrari although I'm not sure I could sensibly wear it. Then the Ulysses Nardin Hannibal Minute Repeater Tourbillon and finally, the Bremont Hercules Platinum (I had to include it, it's a great watch)

    Most of my "dream watches" are not that expensive. Ranges in the thousands, which I could theoretically afford, definitely not millions.

    You'd have to wear an outfit to match! Something like what Iron Man would wear to a funeral.
