The Aqua Terras are beautiful. 

...And so are those Patek Phillipes. Wow.  I'll take the blue one, please.

Thats the same watch :) ... its double faced.  The workings in there must be ridiculous... it has something like:

Hour
Minute
Second
GMT Hand
Day
Date
Month
Moon Phase
Constellation Map/Skyline

And I must me missing a few.

For $1.5 million there are a few things else it should do but the filter would block them out if I wrote them.

And if the watch doesn't do it, there had better be a person that comes with it who will.

For that kind of money they better be twins

Two dozen people trying to decide between a seamaster and a colt.  What a wide range of taste.  I'm not a fan of divers, but to me, the seamaster is a nicer looking watch, and most in the know seem to consider Omega a hair above Breitling in design and quality.  I prefer the Speedmaster.  Not a Tag or Movado fan, and I would suggest looking at Longines, Oris, and Hamilton instead.

I dig that blue Patek Philipe as well - but I thought there were only six grand complications in horology. Does the Patek do each of them twice or something?

I'm getting the old Speedmaster Pro when I land a real job...always been on the short list.

Props for the "value watch" suggestions...I'm a Hamilton and Longines fan myself.
