    1000th Post - SOTC

    It has been just over 2 years since I stumbled onto this forum and starting to build a watch collection.
    Well, I started out on the ''Affordables'' Forum then moved to German watches. Now my favorites are Grand Seiko and Omega
    Fortunately I was in a place in my career where the financial resources grew about the same time as my watch budget increased...

    And here is the latest SOTC, After selling/and trading 58 other pieces that have come before them, I finally feel very happy with my collection. Although I do feel like there is one empty spot in my watch box I am sure that will be taken care of in the very near future, I don't have a desire to flip any of my current pieces to try something else.

    As for the last empty spot in my watch box, I am thinking of adding a GS quartz, it would be nice to have on HEQ in my collection.

    Well thought out collection: Fliegers, Diver, Dress, Dailies, Beater.
    I can see why these survived.

    GS is a great choice to close out the box - but maybe a Spring Drive? (HAEM?)

    If I were to presume to make a suggestion, maybe get some color in the collection by swapping out the AT?

    You are missing an analogue gmt watch. That empty spot is calling for one!

    I agree and I had the Sinn 856 UTC but sold that to fund my Aqua Terra. I would have kept that over the Damasko if I could have sold for the same amount, but still happy with the Damasko DA 36.
    I would love to add a GS GMT and its probably within reach but I'm thinking of the long-term maintenance costs to maintain this collection as well.
    My collection also lacks a chrono and I was thinking of getting one but I"m not a huge chrono fan. If there is anything I've learned in collectting its just to buy what I like and not get a watch because it fills a particular niche in my collection. Mostly I prefer simple three handers that are versatile enough to be daily wearers and dress up when needed.

    Congrats, I think we have similar tastes, I like your collection very much. I think a GS quartz is a great idea as it will give you a dressier grab-n-go at the other end of the scale from your 'G'.
