I started collecting four years ago when my dad mainlined the sickness into my life by giving me his Coke GMT Master. Since then, I’ve been on the hunt for that ideal 3-4 watch collection. I instantly gravitated to divers, but flipped so many of them that nothing really stuck. My wife got me a Speedy as a new job present, so that’ll be a piece that I wear until I’m in the ground.
Out of nowhere, though, came a piece that I never really considered: the Black Bay 36. It came today and I’m in love. Yes, the size isn’t for everyone, but the watch is just pure sex. The ultimate go anywhere, do anything watch. It scratches the Explorer itch for under 2k (lightly used). Cannot recommend it enough.
