PWI's Grail Watches

2 years ago or so, one of my friends Gary showed me an IWC Portuguese Chronograph and I was in awe of the it's aesthetics and being a mechanical engineer, was more in awe of the makings and windings of the watch. This started in me a passion  for looking and reading, not necessarily owning, watches, and the rest as they say is history.

After one Seiko and one Steinhart automatic, both of which I really love, I still have in my head a list of what I believe would make my own perfect collection. This list is not necessarily in order...
  1. IWC Big Pilot's Watch
  2. Rolex Explorer II
  3. Seiko BFS (Review)
  4. Seiko Marinemaster Professional 300m
  5. IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph
  6. Steinhart Nav. B-Uhr II 44m Automatic (Review)
  7. Doxa Sub 750T GMT Sharkhunter
  8. Omega Speedmaster
  9. Grand Seiko GMT
  10. Breitling Navitimer World
  11. IWC Portuguese Perpetual
  12. JLC Reverso Grande GMT
  13. Credor Spring Drive Moonphase GCLL997
  14. Seiko SBDX011 Tuna
  15. Laco Pilot 42 Type B Automatic
  16. Stowa Flieger without logo and date
  17. Glashutte Navigator Panorama Date
Gone from the list are
  1. Glashutte Original Senator Navigator Automatic - It looks too much like the Laco
  2. Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980R - I realized it's too expensive
  3. IWC Portuguese Chronograph Laureus Edition - LEs don't interest me as much as it did before. Still the best looking Port Chrono for me though.
I probably won't end up even with half of what's in this list, but dreaming about them is what makes me the Pinoy Watch Idiot.
