I share your affection with the Milgauss. (When it comes to watches with some protection against magnetic fields, I am also looking at the IWC Ingeniur). Like you, I also have a wish list that is divided by "realistic" and "unrealistic" choices. On my unrealitistic list, I would like to pick up the Breguet Marine Big Date and the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine. But I will venture boldly into 2008 believing that my "realistic list" will still be doable and for that list my focus will be on Rolex.I was very impressed by both the white and black dial Milgauss and lean towards the white dial version. However, I have to see the first green sapphire version yet. 2008 hasn't even started yet, so I have a full 365 days to make up my mind!
Im hoping for a ss yachtmaster II :lol::lol::lol:I'm really, really hoping to stand pat this year with my personal collection. My guess is that Rolex will come out with something that I'll want in Basel this year, but it likely won't be available until 2009 here in the US.
Yes, that is a very nice one too. For me, there are 3 YM I would look at closely before choosing:A 18KT/SS Yachtmaster with white/black onyx dial. Hopefully in the next couple of months, but we'll see.
I saw the Platinum/SS YM at an AD yesterday. I like it, but not as well as the TT with white dial/black onyx.Yes, that is a very nice one too. For me, there are 3 YM I would look at closely before choosing:
1. SS and Platinum
2. Two Tone with white face and onyx markers
3. Two tone with gray face and white markers
(not necessarily in order)
The YM line is one I didn't pay much attention to at first, but after a time I realized how nice they were. I hope you will be able to fulfill your wish. :001_smile:
oh no im talking about the real deal, the yachty II, i heard the usual mutterings of ADs about the possibility of one, thought it was a funny joke :laugh:I assume you are talking about the one with the Platinum bezel. Regardless, the YM is a nice watch too. If I do better than expected, I just might add this model to my list. :001_smile:
