    Picture Earth, water, air and fire - the quintessential 4 element watch collection

    Hi watch friends,

    Inspired by @flyingwatchman I am wondering what would be the ultimate quintessential four watch collection relating to the four elements:
    earth, water, air and fire.


    These would be my picks, excited to see what you would choose.

    Earth: Rolex Explorer 1 - conquer the earth's highest peaks

    Earth: Panerai Luminor GMT



    Air: Junghans Meister Pilot



    Water: Blancpain FF Bathyscaphe

    Really though, they've got this one covered perfectly!

    You could pick different Rolexes. Like a Skydweller for air or a deep sea or a yacht master for water.

    Absolutely. But I think you made the right picks in your original post. Also there's the Air King and YM-II!
