I think this is pretty spot on. One or two you could argue against, but pretty darn close.

My thoughts too. I put my only objections on as comments. The only two that I just don't get are the most cutting edge BS watches on the list. A flieger I understand, just not the Jonny come lately IWC that is nothing special and WAY OVERPRICED IMHO.

IWC, meh... Zeitwerk, might become iconic, too new to be, I think, just like the GMT Master IIC shouldn't and isn't yet on the list.

Mark mentioned the Dreadnaught from Eddie Platts. It started a WHOLE Diver industry IMHO.

It's ironic timing that the PP Nautilus is on the list. That's not the first Patek to come to mind, at least for me, but PP is using that in their new magazine ad campaign... hmmm.

The Dreadnought is definitely an iconic dive watch. Should be on the list!
