    I think I know where I'm going for the first time!

    Hello again fellow addicts

    So over the last few years I've pretty much constantly flipped my way through countless watches.
    I dare not sit and calculate the number of watches, how many times the collection has totally changed, not to mention the money involved.
    However, for the last few months I've been trying to force myself to get a grip and put some sort of plan in place rather than adopting the "ooh that's nice, I want it" approach.
    I pretty much think I'm there........

    Hell, I've even rationalised my watch boxes and got one of these coming as we speak...

    which seems to fit my plan perfectly.

    I'm trying to convince myself that my collection will be complete following this exercise (I know what's going through most of your minds already haha)

    Anyway, if the first pic is legible, you'll notice there are 3 spaces still not 100% decided so feel free to make suggestions.
    Other than that - I was just sharing my therapy session haha

    Cheers
    PS - no comments on my insanity/addiction please lol.

    Damn you're organised. I think that your plan contains a lot of similar watches at least in looks. Are you going for collectibility? Movement exclusiveness, eye candy?

    Didn't you have a VC Overseas? Is that gone? :(

    Wow what a terrific collection. You have a PP but no VC or AP. If you wanted one of each maybe get a VC Overseas Chrono instead of the Tag and bypass the incoming Omega for an AP RO?

    Nice collection and plan with where you're going. There's one revision I'd definitely consider making to your three undecided pieces... Replace one of the chronographs with a Zenith El Primero. I'm not sure if you've tried one, but that is an iconic chronograph and your collection seems to be that of iconic watches.

    A Jaeger LeCoultre Master Control Chronograph might do well to replace the Glashutte Original, too. I think this is change is a very close call to make.

    Let's see some wrist shots!

    My brain frozen as soon I saw the BP Bathyscaphe....
    ok back to normal, I would say get a new TAG CH80 instead of the Cal17...I'm not a fan of the GO 70s Chrono so I would trade that for a an El Primero or a Breguet Type XX...
    also, would trade the Omega AT Captain for a blue dial Omega AT or a blue Rolex Datejust II
