    I moved house about 3 years back and had only been in the place for a few days and the house was burgled...... the safe had not been fitted and as a result I had the following stolen

    White Gold Rolex Daytona
    SS Daytona
    Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso
    Tiffany (misc watch)
    1 x Tag Chronograph (similar to warren_s5's black faced Tag)

    All I was left with was my old Rolex Bi Metal Oyster

    Keep the watch Porn coming..... it's all I have left to keeping going!

    I am working my way through collecting the Casio Edifice Infinity Red Bull series.
    Only got the 200 and the 534 at the moment but the missus has got me the 537 for my birthday.

    Love the Tag Monaco, classic timepiece . I have a Rolex Submariner 16610, bought it in 2010, it's one of last of this model as it was replaced by the ceramic bezel model that year, I tried the ceramic but didn't like the larger / chunkier case. Mine has a random serial number rather than the traditional Rolex format with a leading letter and then numbers, which was only used for a few months, apparently watches with this serial format are quite sought after by collectors.
    Others in my small collection are an Oris big crown pointer date, lovely watch, and a beautiful old Tudor Prince Oyster Chronograph (Pre Tiger Woods edition). I also still have my very first watch which was a Christmas present when I was perhaps aged five, it's a small Timex, with it's original leather strap, it still works and keeps good time but I rarely wind it these days.
    Saving up now for a Comitti Navigator clock, don't know if I'll ever get there but that's the plan.

    Iv got a few watches but these are my more expensive favourite 3. Would love a Tag Heuer or a Breitling but can't really afford one at the moment.

    I'm still quite new to the world of high end watches. This time last year, Mrs Grumpy Old bought me a TAG Heuer Formula One Grande Date., and I love it. It's also given me a taste for nice watches that I didn't have before. Right now, I have an opportunity to buy one of these.

    If I buy it, it means no new TTRS Rotors for the car.

    And I took the opportunity and got it. It's a TAG Heuer Link Ayrton Senna, one of a run of 2004 watches, made in 2004 (although mine was first sold in 2005) to commemorate the tenth anniversary of his death.
