    Adding a 4th Watch into my Collection - Suggestions?

    Hi fellow watch lovers,

    I am kind of in a dilemma right now on a couple of watch choices I would like to add to my collection. A little bit about what's in my collection:

    Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 (Chrono / Sporty)
    IWC Portofino Chrono - Milanese Bracelet (Chrono / Dressy)
    Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra - (basic date / balanced of sporty and dressy)

    I am in my early 30s and well do not have an unlimited budget (otherwise I wouldn't be in a dilemma)

    I and attracted to the IWC Pilot Chrono (current version with the 3 dates) but am torn between getting leather or bracelet. If I do add this to my collection, I will have 3 chrono watches. So much for diversification and variety ... Not that I like the function, just that it appeals to me.

    I am also keen on getting a Panerai 111. Base model, totally different looking watch to include into my collection. Manual winding movement .. but I am not sure if I will hate having to wind it all the time.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre MUT Moon, or Master Control Calendar. Very nice dressy watch with a unique moon phase movement to add variety to my collection.

    Rolex GMT Master II BLNR/LN or the Submariner. With the GMT movement and ceramic bezel, it will certainly add variety in terms of movement and collection. Rolex is more easily recognised at my country and it can be a good or bad thing.

    These are the few watches which I have been slowly starting to add to my dilemma list since my last purchase. Will certainly hope fellow collectors can share their tots on this and how you decide what to add to your collection.

    111 would be a small second model Luminor, base dial for panerai would be 000,112 if you are talking about 44mm luminor.

    Thats a tough one, I have about half dozen of sub and pam combined on and off. I felt they are quite different yet quite essential for my taste.

    The MuT on the other hand is classic and so well balanced but since you have a portofino already i would say get the pam or sub/gmt first.

    Good thing about sub and pam is that their resale price is quite strong(some country stronger than other nevertheless).
    If you are not sure, get a used one and sell it if you dont like it.

    Good luck with the hunt

    MUT moon or one of the two Rolex.

    I personally dislike colors of BLNR but it is a suggestion watch to you so if you like the color, it is a great piece. Sub is always great.

    Best out of the three is MUT Moon. The best one on your list.

    You've got the dressy side fairly well covered. Any interest in some kind of tool watch?

    A Sinn, Damasko, or a flieger would add some variety.

    Would the sub be considered as a tool watch as well?

    but it will probably not be worn as often haha.

    Price wise, I can almost get both the PAM and IWC for the price of 1 Rolex or JLC. Probably also something I tot of too.

    Rolex and Pam are also 2 models which I do see quite often, with the former being more widely seen.

    So far I don't hear much mention about the IWC pilot. Is it because the PAM/Rolex/JLC are superior or we have lesser IWC fans :)

    Re: Adding a 4th Watch into my Collection - Suggestions?

    I'd eliminate the IWC for the reason you mentioned -- just one too many chronos in the collection. Putting aside other preferences (full disclosure: I have both the Sub and GMT, plus two PAMs) and not getting into resale considerations, the JLC would be the best option for diversification imho.
