Since it's dream "watch" and not specific to Rolex, this would have to be mine!

I'm extremely fascinated by the Nautilus design generally, and still wish I had pulled the trigger on one some years ago when they were readily available for significantly cheaper.
An Omani emblem (khanjar dial) would be the dream without a doubt.

This in NOS condition. No need to say why.

Surely money can buy all of the above, so they don’t answer the posed question.
I cannot answer it either since (enough) money can surely buy any watch ?

OP states that "your" money cant afford (as in way above your means, but you'd love to own).

That MoonPhase is one bad ass watch. I have always wanted one of them. Good luck with that. The Red sub just keeps going up.
All so far are very beautiful watches that unless I hit the lottery, will not own.

Yeah. Itís gorgeous. Something about the way the red font plays off the brown dial. Never seen one like this in person though!

How long would I have to lay mine out in the sun to get that way?

You would just need a dial version that color change. It is more about the paint than sunshine imho. Always the same batches that turn tropical.

And if it havent gone tropical by now my guess is that it wont do in the future.

Right. These are generally from the late sixties or early seventies.

Day Date, Datejust or any more of the sports models.

If I keep buying them my wife will stab me in my sleep. Therefore all unobtainable and money can’t buy them.
