Independents: Had one of mine serviced in the UK - was OK but sounds like desertimer has a better option.

I have two and they are not very reliable in my personal experience.

Independents: It is special and very cool in my opinion.

Unusual on a bracelet - works well.

Horological Meandering: Very similar to yours

Not my first watch, but the first I really wanted and saved for was a Tag Professional 2000 Quartz. Still have it and it works perfectly. I try to wear it every few months and change batteries whenever they die. 24 years later my 11 year old son is getting to an age the Tag will fit his wrist. It's

Patek Philippe: Great pics of the Duomo and watch

Rolex: I know it's a terrible answer, but it's a draw for me

I'd love a steel Patek, even over list price. But the Rolexes have much more interesting complications (I love dual times). If it was the 5990, it would be a clear winner for me but otherwise the Patek wins the style/quality battle while Rolex gets the functionality and variety award.

Ulysse Nardin: Great dial and very practical to use

I love the watch with its easy timezone set and pusher for crown modes. And for a 42mm it wears smaller than I was expecting - fits my small wrist just fine. This dial much more legible than mine - blue/red gives poor contrast on the 24 hour home time. Also much less unneeded writing on the dial for
