      New Year's Eve is one of my favourite days of the year. Not only do I get to spend the evening with some great friends, but it is my son's 7th birthday and he is just the greatest boy I could ever hope for. It was a tough choice for which of my most sentimental chronos to wear, but the winner is revealed below. What will you be wearing at 12:00am January 1, 2012?

      Group shot of the contenders:

      My first watch, an Enicar Ocean Pearl chrono

      Okay, not so sentimental, but oh so cool

      A graduation gift from my father. I recall at the time thinking Breguet dials were among the most fantastic creations. Alas, I had just graduated college and at the time thought I could never own a Breguet, so this Girard Perregaux ticked all the boxes for me. Still one of my favourite watches.

      A recent addition to the chrono family, a Richard Mille RM-004 split seconds chronograph. The most complicated watch I own. The movement is simply awesome to behold, surrounded by a white gold case that wears like a compact safe on your wrist.

      But the hands down winner, the watch my father gave me a few years ago that will one day be my son's watch. A stunning 6239 that my father purchased new in 1968. My favourite watch.

      Of all my watches, these tend to be my "feel good" selections. Happy New Year everyone.

      Best, David
