    This is the seamaster i would go for...

    Agree about it being a solid and well built. I just wish they removed the valve button slash crown or something on 11 o clock.

    What is that one called @OttoWilliam? The red looks good on there.

    Agreed, £4k is nuts, but I often think that TH pricing is a but nuts. For sub £2k, it's an awesome watch :) I love the black with the overdone lume, it wears well with a hoodie or t-shirt. The 01 is really good value compared to most of the rest of the range, I particularly like the 43mm version that David reviewed earlier this year. Not made it to the top of my list thou, it's probably 5th, maybe.

    Sorry for drifting so far off topic, here is my current wishlist, in no particular order:
    Drivetimer
    Connected mechanical exchange watch
    Heuer 1000
    New Autavia (when they release one without the horrible divers bezel)
    Carrera twin time
    Heuer-01 43mm

    I wonder what proportion of Seamaster owners have ever had cause to use the Helium Escape valve. I'm guessing it's a very low number :)

    Probably about the same number that have used the helium valve on their aquaracer.

    That is why i think AR without helium valve is a better looking watch altogether.

    On different story. My friend bought aquatimer IWC bronze. And the shop keeper asked him.

    Shopkeeper:Do you really use your watch for diving ?
    My friend:No. Not really. Why ?
    Shopkeeper: Because if you do, we need to do something about the valve first.
    My friend:..............

    Well anyway he bought it and he liked it. That whats count in the end.

    In fairness, I've never used a chronograph to time a lap round Silverstone either.........

    I have a Helium valve on my Aquagraph. That watch has never been wet, period.

    Doesn't get more important than the quest for the perfect cuppa.

    Isn't that something to do with that company that made the watch out of cheese... Bucherer?
