There is no substitute.
"Worthy" is a relative term Kev.At some point hopefully Dickson (Ekam) will chime in on this thread. He's got a few worthy watches in his collection as I understand it.
I guess the most notable one is the Moon watch aka Omega Speedmaster Pro.
But if I have to choose, I prefer German watches and I have half dozen of those, ranging from manual wind to chronographs, new to 50 year old East German GUB watch.
I've been wearing this one for a bit.
