Well it all depends on how successful (and lucky?) I'll be in the meantime, but in 5 years time I do see myself sporting an elegant and understated piece such as the Patek Calatrava ref. 3796 or 3923 or perhaps a simple JLC. In the weekends or more casual days I'd love to wear an Omega Speedmaster, Rolex Explorer 114270 or this marvelous Marvin Watch on a nice matching NATO strap ;)

I really quite like this watch. Designwise it's very fresh with vibrant colors and a matching nato strap. The inner rotating bezel is also an excellent feature because it's much rarer than the outside rotating bezel. The only thing I'm not quite fond of is the size, I'd personally rather see it a 42mm or preferably less. Thanks for the give-away Ablogtowatch and Maurice Lacroix ;)

Very nice Speedy, definitely something else and I didn't know about the 'hidden' tools in the box.. Very cool indeed!

Right now I'm buying watches from the bigger brands but later on in my collection I'll probably put some small watch companies in there..

I prefer brushed steel. When the watch is black I love PVD and DLC even more so! Great giveaway btw

 I haven't changed any of my straps but I'm looking into putting Nato straps on some ;)

Hi, could you tell me the model name of the shoes in the first picture? The leather ones with brown and red ;) I can't seem the find them on their site or anywhere else as a matter of fact!

In my opinion, exposed mechanics can give a dress watch that extra touch of playfulness. Baume & Mercier has some examples in it's classima-line. On the other hand, skeletonized watches can be very cool but you have to watch out as to overdoing it. When you skeletonize a part of the front side it can look very chique , Maurice Lacroix does an amazing job here. The particular Breil of this give away is also a very nice piece!

That's easy, Chuck Norris ofcourse, the watch would be indestructible :) No seriously, I'd buy a watch in honour of Ayrton Senna if it's made by a decent brand who'd fit his spirit. Never understood why Hublot used him for their line?!

I estimate this to go for about 20.000 Euro or such.. For that kind of money I'd choose a Audemars Piguet any day!

I'd probably go for a Patek Philippe Nautilus.

I like the trend towards smaller sized watches. The fact that I have quite small wrists (16-17cm) probably has something to do with it :)

Rado has never been a company that attracted me as a watch fanatic.. Although these designs look decent, they just don't do it for me..

I can imagine that the price will be a lot higher in 10-15 years. 65 000 isn't all that much for such a unique watch in my opinion.

Nice watches, those AP's but too expensive for me to ever own one :|

Looks like a cheap Hublot (only missing the screws).. The design itself isn't to bad though..

Personally i love the Louis Erard 1931 Black PVD (with power reserve and regulator). Looks modern and still a classic dresswatch! Hoping to buy one of those one day ;)

@nateb123 I sense a bit of criticism in your comment sir. This world would be so much better if all watches had perpetual calendars and triple flying tourbillions... Oh and if everyones monthly salary was 1.5 million $.

I find it somewhat strange that the winners of the watch giveaway are never mentioned by ablogtoread.. I think you'll have far more comments if people can actually see who won the watche(s).. Just a suggestion ;)

The one with the red pushers is absolutely stunning! This designer should contact Omega with this..

Too much bling for my personal taste, must be amazing to hold such an expensive watch though.

Im greatly impressed by this watch giveaway! This Christmas I'm secretly hoping a noble stranger would hand me over a B.R.M V12, Tag Heuer Carrera or Chopard Mille Miglia and just walk away :) But since that's not very likely to happen I'm hoping I could win one of these great watches above! Thanks again for these monthly giveaways, I also learn to appreciate other watches this way, especially the Magrette Regattare looks very neat..
