    Chronograph Obsession

    Been a member of this forum now for a few years. Recently took a look at my modest collection, which averages 1-2 special purchases a year lol, and noticed that all my watches are chronographs. Don't know what it is but I like the look of multiple dials and pushers. I am now conscious of this and I'm trying to branch out and try something different.

    My question to you guys is; Does your collection have a running theme or a common thread connecting them?

    No common thread for me, unless you count my lack of dress watches as one. I'm all over the place, divers, chronos, aviation you name it. I just love watches and collect whatever catches my eye and appeals to me.

    I think you are kind of person who likes watches with busy dial.

    When I were younger I used to wear chronograph watches too, but now I tend to prefer automatic watches with simple dial layout, when I need a chronograph I just grab my G-shock.

    I intentionally try to spread my collection to different genres, divers, pilots, vintages. I'm personally not a huge fan of Chronographs, they have to be done pretty well, I like a simple watch. It's good you're making an effort to get some variety in your collection! Interesting you didn't even notice!

    I just love chronographs - love looking at them and using them. There are enough different types of chronographs out there that every watch I buy is a chronograph.

    I buy divers, sports and dress watches, all 3 handers. I seem to love the movement of a central seconds hand. I've had small seconds and chronographs - never really grew on me.
    I'm content with my watch collection

    I just like watches with interesting and accurate movements. Aesthetically, I'm not a big fan of chronographs, but I love tons of complications visible on the dial.

    No me, but I'll use any excuse to post a Speedy picture and give a shout out to a fellow Hoosier.

    Re: Chronograph Obsession

    I love chronographs. I use mine all the time, and it feels weird when I don't have one on, to be completely honest. As of late, I've been wearing dive chronos, because of a medication I'm on; I take one pill, then I have to eat 15-30 minutes later (chronograph). Then, I need to take another pill 5-6 hours later; I set my dive bezel to the hour hand and count the elapsed hours that way. Perfect. Never miss a dose.
