I meant to go to bed after that last post, but instead I just spent another twenty minutes gathering a list of the watches I've bookmarked over the past couple of weeks that I think are beautiful and wanted to share them here.

If you ever need to pick a "safe" watch for a guy, I'd go with the Omega Speedmaster:

It was the watch used by NASA for the moon missions (there's a great story behind it, Google it)

Personally, I'd rather own a Tag Carrera Chrono:

The Maurice Lacroix Pontos chrono seems nicely dressy:

For me, if I ever felt like I had an extra 5 grand burning a whole in my pocket, I'd go with the IWC Portugeuse (although the fact that the 12 and 6 are cut off really bugs me):

For the more budget conscious (as far as you can go with luxury watches, anyways), the Baume & Mercier Classima is pretty awesome:

When it comes to non-chronos, the Panerai is an incredibly stylish (and PRICEY!) choice:

I love the font of the numbers. I've never seen one in real life, but based on the measurements, they seem like oversized watches.

If you're not concerned with automatic movements, Movado (and its subsidiary, ESQ) make some pretty pieces of jewelry which tell time:

Movado Fiero:

ESQ Fusion:

I recently found a guy selling this Hamilton Conservation watch used, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to pull the trigger (used watches are actually VERY reasonably priced!):

PM5K, I await a witty comment.

i like the hamilton and iwc, though i think the hamilton seems a bit too... blah, i think it's too much like your swiss army watch.
