Nice watches and collections, gentlemen!

My Skagen watch can't really beat that. At least not in price
But the (Danish) design features, black strap, black casing, black & square dial make that I like putting it on in the morning.

I'll start my collection (2 and more is a collection, no? ) with a Panerai. They are so nice.

IWC's are very classy. I love their designs.

MeisterSinger

A watch that is on top of my wish list is the relatively new German brand MeisterSinger. I like the “less is more” feel and look of these watches. It’s only possible to read the watch with a five-minute precision. Wearing a MeisterSinger you have to be very relaxed…I can use that attitude some times .

very clean design. Sapphire crystal on back is a favorite. Almost all of mine have that. I love to see the movements.

If you like IWC and also like a Dutch brand …maybe this is the watch for you.

The story behind this brand is somewhat similar to the story behind the start of Lamborghini.

Wybe van der Gang, factory owner producing high technology instruments used in the space industry and in medical equipment, could not find a watch that was finished with the precision and craftsmanship he is used to. So he started to make his own watches. Making advantage of all the high precision machine tools he has he started the company. The cases for example are carved from one solid piece of special, unscratchable steel. (the movements are Valjoux 7751 automatic chronographs) Van der Gang Watches

Oh, I think you just cost me some money Rijk...that is a great one. I am also quite interested in the steampunk style from Vianney Halter, and the great designs coming out of Greubel Forsey. It is truly an embarrassment of riches in the watch world these days.

You mean Wouter, not Rijk, I think
