    I think the most iconic would be a speedy. But if not how about a rail master

    it's old, but not quite as old as me...

    but it's older than the very first watch my parents gave me, which I found in a box in the attic last year...

    This is my first 'Speedie'.

    You guys all said it, after I bought my first vintage Ω, that it was just a matter of time before I got 'Speedie' (or, Speedy) Fever, and I didn't want to believe you... So, I figured I'd get a '70's or so... but....

    Yep, my watchmaker's gonna be very happy :D

    She's gonna need a bath and spa treatment, and some new glasses, but she's running well already... I would hope so at a price almost 1000x what someone I know got for an amazing LeCoultre!
