Hi. I am new to WUS and wanted to ask for some help. I have been buying watches for a while but only this year did I decide to start a proper collection. The first thing I did was to get rid of almost all my ETAs: an IWC Portofino and (glubs) a Hublot. What I have now basically is:
* JLC reverso (small)
* Rolex Explorer II gmt
* zenith captain elite
* Omega Speedmaster man on the moon
* tag heuer aquaracer chrono
* Nomos Orion
* Tudor Black Bay (red)
* fifty fathoms bathyscaphe
My main question is this: I have recently discovered Grand Seiko, a brand I had no idea about until reading about it extensively in forums like this and seeing them in person. I have fallen in love. I bought an automatic SBGR051 on the spot and three months later a glorious new hi beat gmt LE (green dial). I have ordered an SBGV011 self dater which will get here in a couple of months (having always hated quartz). The hi beat gmt took the place of a reverso slim duoface I had previously set my eyes on.
I am thinking of getting rid of everything else in my current stable and focusing only on Grand Seiko.
The question is: am I mad?
I will keep the reverso for sentimental reasons: it was given to me by my ex wife and I want to think that something good came out of that marriage. I will hold on to it at least until I see how my kid turns out. I do hope to get a calatrava and a Lange one day; below that, I have seen nothing of the overall quality I find in GS.
