    Help me decide which watches to keep

    Guys help me decide which watches are keepers. Currently my rotation seems to revolve around these watches due to the fact they have some water resistance and are just comfortable.

    Oris Diver 65
    Sinn 356

    These watches for some reason or another seem to be collecting dusts. I think having 3 divers are overkill so the Steiny and Turtle are probably on my top list to sell. What do you think I should keep and sell?

    Tissell Pilot 40mm B dial
    Seagull 1963 acrylic version
    Seiko SRPA21 (misaligned chapter ring...grr)
    Seiko SARG009 (running slow...grrr)
    Steinhart OVM 1
    Stowa Flieger A dial with solid case back
    Stowa Antea KS old logo

    Sell them all bar the two you wear.

    I agree that if you don't actually like a watch, you should sell it. If you are intent on keeping some of the ones that you don't really wear, though, I'd keep the Sea-Gull and one of the Stowas. But that's me; personally I have a thing for chronographs and movements that are interesting to look at. And one of the Stowas would add variety to the collection.

    If you have no real urge to wear them, sell them. I don't think there's anything wrong with having 3 divers or 10 divers if you love them all, and it makes no sense to keep a watch you don't really like just for variety's sake. Buy something you really like.

    I would only save Seagull 1963. It is just different in a watch box. 1963 has strong character. A talking piece.

    It's a love hate relationship. Love the vintage vibe. Hate the fact that I paid 2k for a watch that scratches easily. Acrylic is plastic non fantastic.

    Sell them all and start over with something CLASSIC with a quartz movement that can go anywhere do anything. Maybe add a SKX007 and buy tons of NATO and rubber straps. You obviously have assembled a group that doesn't please you....shake it up!

    Re: Help me decide which watches to keep

    Echoing the last comment, it is clear that none of your watches really excite you--so sell them all, and get one, maybe two, that you really like--I personally would replace the collection with a Rolex Explorer 1 (newest version), or, since you like "fliegers", maybe an IWC Mark X?, plus one "beater".
