    My collection

    Re: My collection

    Thanks for coming through on the SOTC Its really nice to see them all arrayed like that, crumbs 172, and I bet that isn't even the ones in the repair box.

    I don't think I have a single German, Japanese, French and only 1 Ruski watch - and I thought I was broad minded.

    I'll take you up on your challenge, but it'll take me a little bit of time.

    Re: My collection

    WOW

    I may have guessed you would have up to 100 watches... but not nearly double that... You have a wonderful mix which most collections probably would not have... Can I ask how long have you been collecting??

    Also... I struggle to store 10 - 12 watches which I class as keepers... how do you store that many watches??

    Finally on the questions.. how often do you wear (change) these... do you have a method of rotation??

    As for posting my collection... Im building up to my 1000th post (which is coming quicker than i would like)... As ive said in previous posts, Im trying to stretch my collection into new realms... and break away from a Seiko collection! This is due to comments a few months ago, when a thread was started by a noob, asking what made a good collection? I think you have got it spot on... VARITY! different makes, ages, movements, cases, shapes, styles, etc... Im trying to pick good examples (like a smiths, English made, military watch...) of different watches! The other way to collect is to specialise (in any of the genres i listed)... but i found myself with blinkers.. not seeing the bigger picture!!

    But in a long rambling answer... I will post my (far far far smaller) collection at 1000 posts!

    Thanks for spending the time to do that... its a GREAT collection you have....

    As an afterthought, I realised something!

    You have a watch from every letter of the alphabet..... other than X..... Xemex, Xen, Xezo??

    Good idea Marc, I'lll commit to posting at 2000. Which by current reckoning is 150 days, I might even manage to make a nice list (ala Marrick) in that time.

    Well, mine would be in 177 days... but I think my post rate is more than 1 a day....

    My list could be on a posted note! Which Im more than happy to do!

    Since about when I joined this forum I suppose - 4 and a half years.

    One nice wooden storage case, two cheap aluminium 'briefcase' type storage cases, a 4 drawer wooden chest - and a lot lying around.

    I try to wear a lot of them - but fairly randomly; and some never get worn and should really go. I often find posts in this forum reminds me of one I have, and I dig it out.

    Thanks for the kind words Marc. But I don't think most collectors would like my scatter gun approach. In my own little way, I have a few brands I particularly like (Certina, Roamer, UG,) as well as developing an interest in more obscure French and German companies. Each to their own.

    Re: My collection

    Now that is an impressive collection..... and a lot of very good watches in amongst these,
    I'll bet it's more watches than a lot of vintage dealers carry in their stock.

    My collection is far fewer maybe 40-50 watches including pkt watches, I need to catalogue
    them and will take some pics when I get time.

    I hadn't realised that - but there's a Medana Xtensa.
