I posted a similar question in the spring in the Rolex forum. I thought I had reached a decision but analysis-paralysis set in and I didn't buy anything. So now I'd like to open it up to the public forum as I'm seriously considering it again.
Attached is a picture of my modest collection--my 36mm Rolex Explorer (a wedding present from my wife), my Seiko SKX 007 (great beater for the beach/summer but also a watch i continue to wear year round) and my G-Shock (another awesome, fun beater.)
I'm looking to add another nice/luxury/whatever-you-want-to-call-it watch to my collection. Something on par with my Rolex Explorer. I'd like to keep it in the price range of a Rolex Explorer but I could go higher, say 8K max.
As an aside, I was at my nephew's wedding recently. I noticed he was wearing a beautiful Rolex Datejust. I asked him if it was a wedding present and he said it was actually my deceased grandfather's watch and had been passed down to his dad, who now gave it to him. It struck me at how meaningful and beautiful that was. I then started to think about the fact that I have two little boys. And that my Explorer will one day go down to one of them. And how I'd like to have another watch that will go down to my other son. I of course, get to enjoy it in the meantime.
So what do you think? If this was your collection, what would your next watch be?
