Has to be an Omega for personal reasons.
It's what I've always wanted and what I will end up getting.
Found out about the Speedmaster Moonwatch and love the look of it so that is what I would like to try and source.
Not bothered about diving to 300m so the lack of waterproofness is not an issue and the fact is is a wind up suits me too.
Didn't have to be a full auto and the fact that it has been to the moon and back and works in space is quite nice
Thanks for the helpful comments so far

I am into watches a bit and have a few. What about looking at Alpina watches.
A bit less known than the usual names but very good watches and excellent movements. No relationship to Alpina cars other than they once created a watch for Alpina cars for the B6 racing and I missed not bidding for one of these on ebay and it went for only £800 in the end, could have kicked myself. I have been considering one for my collection as they have some great looking watches.

Among others I have an Omega Seamaster (Bond watch), Brietling Navitimer Montbrillant Datora, my best watch and I am also into Seiko 6139's one of which I have owned since my 21st birthday, all 44 years. I have a collection of various old watches and a couple of replicas.

Thanks, I actually got it cheaper in the end as I agreed to do a bank transfer rather than PayPal so did a deal. It was like new, boxed with spare strap and with receipt from Alpina Buchloe.
I think the selller didnít click that the Alpina car link was an advertising plus point.
I wear it whenever I go to meets so if you bump into me at one I will have it on.

If you have really deep pockets there is of course Breguet and Patek Philippe. Rolling Eyes

I have a Breitling B-1 I have had for 20 years and a 1971 Omega baby PloProf I drunkenly purchased from enay about 6 years ago. Both are excellent timepieces and attractive and useful in their own individual ways.

Phil, What a coincidence. It is strange that a fellow V8S owner bought that watch and even stranger is that it never occurred to me at the time that it might have been a register colleague. Well I consider that to be a absolute bargain. I was so annoyed with myself as on the last day of bidding i had been watching it at work then went home and had something on that evening and completely forgot and remembered as soon as i woke up in the morning with it being the first thing on my mind. Worth a lot more especially with the limited edition link, probably £2k+ when new. Well done i will hope to see it if we meet.

You snooze you lose as they say John! If you see me at a meet feel free to check it out. It is a nice pilots watch. They are for sale from FMW in Germany I think but I donít think they are the limited edition watches for the B6 ADAC win which is what drew me to this particular watch obviously.
