    He thinks collection is boring? I'll show you boring!



    I arrived at these three after flipping or returning a LOT of watches. They're...basically the same watch, with slightly different aspects, like some Hindu god, or the Father/Son/Holy Ghost.

    Let me see, the losers were: Mondaine Ultra Thin, Sinn U1, Seiko solar diver, Stowa Marine, Kemmner Skeletuhr, Sinn 857 UTC, Sinn 103 St Panda, Omega Aqua Terra (3 of them!), Certina Master Chrono, Certina diver, Doxa Aquaman, Seiko mechanical diver, Christopher Ward C11, Steinhart Ocean Vintage GMT, Casio Pathfinder, Casio G-Shock, Torgoen T10, and a Nomos Club. I'm probably forgetting one or two in there. I flipped each one for very good reasons.

    So, I'm left with these three. BOOOORING. That said, I have some nice variety represented. One daily, one dress, one beater. One handwind, one auto, one quartz. One Chronograph. One bracelet, one leather, one cloth. One in-house mechanical movement. See what I mean?

    I can't think of another watch I could possibly need, so I'm done. I know this because I was able to afford my 'grail' easily three months ago (a Nomos Zurich Worldzeit) and I passed. I guess I came to the conclusion that sometimes wanting is better than having. I'm using my mad money to travel instead.

    Anyway, feel free to have some fun at my expense. I know I've had my fair share of 'post Veblen links and run' myself.

    Dear Mr Snowman,

    I am sorry but I can't agree, I think it is a good collection and shows thought.

    Sorry

    I'm happy...If you're happy.
    Looks fine to me.
    Good luck

    I'm bored ... or just sleep-deprived. I'll let you know in a few hours.

    BTW, looks like some evil bunny stole your carrot-nose.

    Boring ?
    If you think its boring then its boring and if you like your collection then its not boring, who cares what other think ?
    Me personally I think you need a little addition like a Rolex Submariner but why would you care what other think ?
    Enjoy your nice collection in good health.



    Oh and BTW your Speedy is my favorite watch from your collection.

    I think it's a great rotation! You have a Speedy Pro and a Zenith dress watch, nothing boring there, two classic choices. You could always grab that Sinn U1 again to add some uniqueness.

    I love the ultra thin and think it represents fantastic value (relatively speaking of course). I'm currently treating it in the same manner you are the Zurich. We'll see how long I stay strong!

    A great collection, easy to read; although they're not showing the same time. :)

    Does anyone really know what time it is?

    Don't see much similarity there beyond monochromatic nature of your choices.
