    From five to a one watch collection

    I'm finding it difficult to give each of my watches some wrist time, so I've decided to slim my collection down to a one watch collection: I need your input:

    Watches:
    16220 Datejust from 1992
    Omega Seamaster PO 2201.50
    Omega SMPc gloss ceramic
    Grand Seiko 40th anniversary
    Omega Speedy reduced sapphire crystal

    Thanks!

    If you weren't worried about giving each wrist time, which one would you wear the most?

    One watch isn't a collection *LOL*

    Three ways of thinking about this:

    1. The one you wear the most already is the one to keep. You've already said you're having trouble giving some of your watches wrist time; why would you make one of those your one and only? You were favoring a different watch for a reason.
    2. The one that fits in the most occasions, assuming you really mean to be a one-watch guy.
    3. Keep two: one you wear most of the time, and one you use for specific occasions or as a change-of-pace watch.

    Beyond that? Can't help you. I'm not you, I don't know what you like, and I don't know what reasons you purchased each of the watches to begin with. I'd say that's all more important than what I personally think.

    It's to late, you're clearly burnt-out on watches, take up fountain pens and register in a writing club. I'll PM you my address and you can send me your watches, oh I'm just about sure one of your watches is worth all 16 of mine, BTW I like all my watches too.

    Wow. Yeah, I'd pick the one you wear and/or connect to the most. Not sure I can pick from this list for you, but love the Speedy.

    The DJ because it will dress up or down and it's waterproof. The Omega's would work too if you dress casually, but the Speedy Pro is not WR enough for a single watch and the GS probably has too many shiny bits for an every day watch.
