    Hey, out there. I’ve got the next „Green card“ from my wife to buy a watch ::psy::.
    I’ve got allready an explorer Rolex and the 145.022-69 omega.
    My mind is jumping around on gmt master II with the black Bezel, the Submariner or waiting if Omega releases an interesting limited edition.
    My dream, the gmt master blnr is not anymore possible to buy on stores.
    Any recommendations out there?
    I love vintage too, but it should be a watch for daily use because I wear my watches...

    that’s true, an polar edition or something with an 321 Kaliber and applied logo.
    The IWC mentioned above looks great! Remembers me to mine Breitling Skyracer...

    Oh sorry by the way, Thankyou Standy! I will check my next IWC dealer and ask if he got the mentioned pilot series in near future. It seems it’s a pretty big watch...

    @STANDY - create a new thread called "Recommended Watch" and pin it. Open it to all. Or maybe get with @eugeneandresson and expand to a web site were one can answer your questions with a drop down menu and in real time get he recommended watch to buy.

    Puh, now it becomes difficult. I just visit this week a Rolex store. The nice woman showed me the Rolex gmt. She offered me to set me on waitlist for the blro. We talk a bit about and I ask how long it would last to get this highly wanted krown. She replied it wouldn’t took that long. She assume spring but for sure this year...

    So she showed you a watch that they had, but wouldn’t sell it to you. But you can go on a waiting list with no exact date that you will get a watch like the one she showed you. Lucky you :whistling:

    Yes that’s true, I will wait to spring for more than one reason.
    First Basel world with, may a new speedy Modell.
    The Rolex women supposed spring
    The two iwc dealers will get a few watches in April....

    So, no shame to wait and see.
