@wunnaz in Melbourne I'd suggest Pickings and Parry, Godspeed, or Anthill Workshop.

I don't know anyone in Sydney or Brisbane. There was a shop in Adelaide that offered denim, but I've forgotten their name.

TAG Heuer have released a new version of the Monaco.

"TAG Heuer Monaco"

The big difference with the old version is that it now uses the in-house Calibre 02, rather than an ETA movement. It's gained a seconds hand at the six o'clock position too, and it might be slightly thicker than before.

Hodinkee and Monochrome have more details.

I took a walk out today and saw the new Omega Trésor in steel.

"Omega Tresor"

It's a really nice piece. The dial is a bit more reflective than it appears in photograph, so it catches the light more than I expected.

That Mido is a nice piece. ETA movements can be incredibly reliable and accurate too.

I'm seriously considering the Dell XPS 13 2 in 1 myself.

The recently announced Surface Pro X also looks interesting, but would mean going down the ARM route. I'm not sure how that'll turn out.

I actually spotted one of those Pateks in the window of a dealer a while back. Despite embodying pretty much everything I dislike in watches, I quite liked it. ???

And this is what @Chris will buy when he wins the lottery. :D

I've only tried a mesh bracelet on with the Omega Ploprof. That was comfortable due to the watch being made from titanium and hence light.

If I got the Blancpain, I'd be tempted to try the bracelet.

The Mountain Parka looks great @Anesthetist.

I'd be tempted, but I'm currently very broke and own the denim version, so I couldn't justify it even if I could afford it!

The Villeret Extra Plate probably looks better on the leather strap.

"Blancpain Villeret Extra Plate"

I got to try one on a few months ago, when a local dealer was having a preview of the new Swatch Group releases. It's a really lovely watch.

My favourite Grand Seiko dial at the moment is on the Godzilla special edition. Plus I prefer straps to bracelets.

"Godzilla Grand Seiko"

The only branding is everyone's favourite Kaiju stomping on the Seiko building on the back.

"Godzilla Grand Seiko Back"

More at Hodinkee.

As for the Lange Odysseus, I think that the bracelet looks a lot better on the wrist, such as in this video from Monochrome.

I'd prefer it if they'd gone for a mille mailles style mesh bracelet, like on this Blancpain, or maybe a simpler design such as used on the Zenith Defy a few posts up.

Nice bag @Anesthetist. I like the way that Dyneema creases up.

You do realise if you kept your addiction under control, you'd have been able to afford a Bole rucksack years ago? ;D

The Zenith Defy range uses a similar shape, but I think that the A384 looks better.

"Zenith Defy El Primero 21"

If you don't want to be an amateur proctologist, Zenith have collaborated with Bamford and Mr Porter to produce a limited run of the A384.

"Zenith x Bamford x Mr Porter A384"

The big difference is that it's a sandblasted titanium case, rather than steel in the standard model. Oh, and that lovely blue dial. But I think that they missed a trick in not matching the date wheel colour.

More over at Monochrome.

Hamilton have re-issued the Chrono-Matic 50, which was a seventies design.

"Hamilton Chrono-Matic 50"

It looks pretty cool, but has a 48.5 mm case and costs around $2500.

More details at Monochrome.
