for me it depends on my bonus in feb...
big ticket item would be my first Rolex: SubC no date or SD or White dial Exp II42

I may get a Pam 000 or another 177? but that would be at the sacrifice of others so it;d be self funded by the collection. I'd sell the U1 and MM300 for it I am thinking.

I have two boutique coming in this month (pre-ordered months ago) and paid for already:
The HEXA K500 BB and PVD bezel
The new Raven Sub

I am selling my Benarus TI 47 and will soon be selling my Bathys PVD Benthic ETA 2892 as well to free up some cash for the next target...[ I want an Anonimo bad for some reason... again... :shifty: ]

I could possibly go after a Bremont or IWC diver instead of another Pam... a bit undecided at this point.
Truth is I am pretty happy with my collection as it is, or will be after selling the two mentioned above.
I don't think I'll keep both the U1 and MM300, so at least one will go if not both.
Merde Alors! Et Vive Les Francais! :)

Add a submersible to the 000 (or in place of the 000, depending on finances)
Would love to try Bremont.

Maybe a couple of affordables for variety.

A week ago, I would have told you something about a RO or a TTP '68 (hey I can at least dream about the latter). But the 114060 really has taken away any watch lust, at least for the time being.

Don't sell/flip my watches (yet) so 2013 will probably be a slow year. Prob a Tag Heuer diver and Seiko Kinetic something I can wear to work and not have to be too precious regards knocking it about, once I'm med upgraded later this year after knee reco surgery.

If it's a good year Zenith Pilot Doublematic.

Right here and now? Maybe sell off a couple lower end ones and get a Damasko Da-47 or Da-47 black.

The DWC Ennebi looks sweet and the pricing looks good. Hopefully that works out as I was not planning to do much early in the year.

I have pre-ordered Dagaz Typhoon so that one for sure.

A lot has to go right this year but, On the larger front I hope to look at replacing the departed 16600 with another sub-variant. (Not many people know but it is gone but stayed in the family to a great home)

And high on my wish list will be the updated IWC Ingy - I really like that.
Regards

Would like to try an 8500 PO, Rolex GMT or SD...or maybe nothing at all. I go back and forth.

I am going to sell off to only two, maybe just one, to free up some cash. Recently bought a Jeep, and I'm looking to add some stuff to it. Probably can't put off dirt bikes for the boys any longer. Seems to me the watch lust has lost its attraction. I will have to decide between a 14060, SHOM, SMP, Doxa, Sinn, and various other less expensive watches.

On a side note, anyone seen Calikid (Trevor) around lately?

The "big one" will be either an AP Carbon Diver or a PP Nautilus.

"Along the way" pieces seem to center around Sinn; perhaps a Sinn 142 and maybe another U1000 S, or possibly an EZM 10. I also wouldn't say no to a cal. 321 Speedy.

That's about it for now. We'll see if any of the above changes after SIHH and Basel.

Damn you!!! :banghead: I though the PP Nautilus was 'our' watch. :mrgreen:

2012 sort of sidetracked my ambitions. With that said, 448 and 449 are here. I just have to pick them up. I'm still looking for a pristine 5402 A-Series (first 1,000). As a backup, the 15202. I want craniotes money! I need to dump a few now.

All the best!

Sorry dude, but ever since I tried on the Carbon Diver at the boutique I haven't been sleeping too well (in person, that thing is hawt). Don't worry, though, a Nautilus is definitely still on the menu; just might have to wait until 2014 'til I land one, though (I know, I know, I said the same thing in 2011 about 2012 and then I went and got the Top Gay Perpetual instead...).

As for wanting "Craniotes money", I might say the same thing about you and your Tani money -- a 448 and a 449? And you're still gunning for an A-Series, though you might settle for a 15202 while you wait? :raised:

In my dreams, kind sir! :crybaby:

Rolex GMT 16750 or 16710 has been on the list for the longest time.
Interested in Aegir CD-1
Like to try a PAM

Must sell a couple to make the above happen.
