Im thinking of slimming down the collection further, and was talking to a friend about this. We discovered that a 3 watch collection was not only practical but practically written in the stars!
How so, you ask?
48 hour power reserve. Many standard watch movements have some variation of 40-50hour power reserve. This means that if everything is automatic, and worn consecutively, a 3 watch rotation would perfectly allow each watch to be worn for a day and not run out of power. A 3 watch rotation would eliminate the need for a watch winder. Plus, you would be motivated to get as much wrist time in with each watch to ensure the power reserve doesn't run out.
What would be your 3 watch collection?
My current goal is:
Rolex Seadweller 4000
IWC Big Pilot 5004
Calibre de Cartier in Rose Gold
