A VC will someday adorn my wrist. I love my 2 tone sub and it has been my grail watch for a long time but now after having owned it and loved it for several years I have a new watch quest. I'll never get rid of my Submariner and I'll probably buy an Explorer II, a Daytona or a Sea Dweller Deep Sea before I get my VC but hopefully by the time I retire I'll wear a VC to a trial or at least grand jury some day. I'd take just about any VC before just about any Pattek Phillipe any day and twice on Sunday. Gorgeous watch!

Yeah, a little history there. I purchased the Explorer II when I received a milestone (for me anyways) promotion in 1997. The Milgauss was acquired when I took a new position in 2009. A big career shift for me. And, last December (hasn't made it to a collection snapshot yet) I completed my MBA. So here's my Zenith El Primero! My first Chronograph ever.

Really like old watches too.

The Elgin pocket watch was given to my father by his grandfather for his confirmation day(Lutheran)back in the mid-20s. The upper left rose gold on a leather strap(not original)was a gift from my mom to my father during the '40s. The others I picked up over the years(no longer have the GMT).

My favorite vintage (from a wearable perspective, as obviously my family watches are more precious to me) is my Hamilton Super-Compressor 600! Circa 1960ish.

That Vacheron Constantine is a nice one. You don't see those every day.

I'm primarily a Seiko guy with a few Citizens for good measure.

Love the 4:00 crown on Seiko divers. I'm sure I'll have an O.M. mod again one day.
