If I owned this Certina, I don't think I could ever get myself to sell it.

Loving the tropical dial on this Le Jour Chronograph. I'm not sure what this or something like it costs. I imagine it's more than I'm willing to pay. But I would love to own something like this if it were affordable and I could verify that the guts were in good condition.

These run from $500 to $4000.

Not quite running Chronometer spec anymore, but not far off either. I love this little beauty.

And a Vacheron Constantin 6378. I like those indices.

One of Mrs.MoT's grandfather's watches.

Going to start collecting quotes to have it serviced/repaired. It has the Lemania 1281, so I'm sure it won't be cheap. :oops:

Here's an oddball that I would love to own if they weren't so danged expensive.

Elgin direct read/jump hour/digital automatic chronograph from the '70s housing a Kelek (TDB 1376) movement.

I've seen photos of these Vulcain Nauticals before but I'm not sure I've ever seen one in such good condition.
